Damien Farrell's hard work
Boxing's hard workers Damien Farrell in Queensland steps up to the
plate as always helped by his wife Cindy.
sent me an article which I didn't place on my website as I
concentrate on Victorian Boxing but now I feel like a heel because
he even went as far as having used YVB gloves in an amateur
promotion he had a lot to do with.
is the email Cindy sent me, Damien is an interesting man with
courage and determination with a kind heart to see his fellow
indigenous kick on. (
Cyndy sent me another email with the following: )
