About Fred Brophys boxing troupe

At the start of the show Fred Brophy comes out and beats on his drum to announce to the crowd that the fights are about to begin. Standing in his trademark silky red shirt, banging the drum, Fred Brophy informs the crowd that "this is where boxing champions are discovered".

 Local fighters are matched up with his team of boxers and the show begins. The fights take place on a canvas mat in the middle of the tent.There are no ropes and the edge of the matt is the boundary of the ring. After the fighting is over the boxers and the locals forget the ringside grudges and join each other for a few ales and a friendly yarn.

Come along to one of the events and say G'day to Fred and his team. Or visit his website to find more places to meet up with Fred Brophy.
