I remember some fantastic nights in this arena when I was a boy, the ABA senior pre-lims and the ABA North West counties finals were held here when not at the Liverpool stadium.
These shows were effectively Manchester V Liverpool contests and the atmosphere was amazing. I remember the likes of Bobby McKenley, Eddie Copeland, Solomen Jeng, Joey Jacobs, Clive Edwards and Chris Coady boxing in wars with their Liverpool counterparts, those were the days! It was tough back then.
Does anybody remember those nights or did you box there?
