James Moorcroft Boxer From Hindley
Started by: stacker lee (287) Report abuse
I went to the Robin Park Arena last Saturday to watch the boxing in general and James Moorcroft in particular. He is from Hindley and his trainer is Lee Blundell. It was a great night and the icing on the cake was that James won and with considerable style. There's bits of him fighting and also being interviewed on Youtube that are worth a watch!

An article about James on the Wigan Today website:

Good up and coming young boxer, in five years time he could well be a champion and Jarvo will be telling everyone how he used to work his corner!

Bit of him fighting it must have been a rough match knocking chunks off one another

Just got back from holiday so I missed James Moorcroft's latest fight. Another win by the lad from Hindley,

Hope that sooner or later he will get some recognition in his homes town.
