The university’s AU and Societies President Phil Bell is also convinced about Danny’s potential in the upcoming fight.
“Danny’s successes not only help to promote the university’s Athletic Union, but also form a springboard for the establishment of our own boxing society at the university,” he said.
“We are obviously very pleased with his past achievements and wish him the very best of luck for any future competitions.”
Danny’s coaches will meet with university representatives on Friday 28th January to discuss future prospects of taking advantage of the current boxing gym, and hope to establish a boxing club at the university later in the year.
