Meet Coleraine’s professional boxer!

By Michael Anderson 

Coleraine has a new professional boxer!

Matty Boreland is the first professional fighter from the town in 25 years.

The last? His current coach Micky Fleming.

Matty, who fights out of the Golden Gloves club in Coleraine, has signed pro terms with Ian Gaughran.

Fighting at Bantamweight/Super Bantamweight, Matty is a big Coleraine FC fan.

Hopefully he will have the support of the Bannsiders as he embarks on his fighting journey.
