Aged fifty Marion Dunn joined a boxing gym and soon became addicted; learning how to punch with the best of them. The Boxing Diaries: How I Got Hooked is Marion’s blow by blow account. In January Marion was interviewed for BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour.
During Marion’s interview, she explains to Jane Garvey why boxing is such a wonderful activity, how she adapted to the high-intensity fitness training and why boxing isn’t as aggressive and unwelcoming as it may seem. Jane Garvey described Marion as “one of the most positive people I’ve ever met.” It’s a really great interview and well worth a listen on catch-up.
Don’t miss your chance to spend a fascinating evening with Marion Dunn at Bolton Central Library on Tuesday 7 April and tickets are available now via Eventbrite.
