James said: “I’m delighted to be taking part in the charity Boxing night and I’ve no doubt that the generous gym users will be supportive as always. In the run up to the fight night we will be hoping to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic charity. So come on down to The Gym at Coleraine Leisure Centre and join the fun.”
