World-champion professional boxer Susie Q Ramadan visited young boxing students at a Werribee club last week.
Ramadan, Australia’s first woman to win both the International Boxing Federation (IBF) Bantamweight World Title and WBC World Bantamweight Title, visited the Wyndham PCYC (Police Citizens Youth Club) last Thursday.
It was the club’s bi-monthly interclub sparring and development day.
PCYC head coach Vince Marino introduced Ramadan to the young boxers present.
Marino, an accredited boxing coach with Boxing Australia, runs the club – which is supported by community organisations, government groups, Victoria Police and local businesses – to help underprivileged and at-risk youth gain confidence and life skills.
Ramadan said the level of skill she witnessed among the young boxers at the PCYC interclub day was “very high” and congratulated Marino on the event.
Ramadan also offered advice to many of the young boxers after she watched their sparring sessions.
