Boxing Barman aims for Welsh Championship

A barman at Newport's best pub, the Pen & Wig on Stow Hill will be fighting on Saturday for the Welsh senior middleweight championship boxing title in Aberdare.
Leon Goodman, a 20 year old student at UWIC, has previously won 5 Welsh championships at youth level and 3 British national championships, also at youth/schoolboy level, and has been boxing for 10 years.
Leon will be moving from pulling pints to pulling punches at the fight on Saturday and says,
"Boxing takes a lot of dedication and commitment and pulling pints in the Pen & Wig is good exercise for my arms. When I win on Saturday I hope to go professional afterwards, in the meantime I will be pulling the pints of Welsh real ale in the Pen & Wig".
