“Frankie Oatway”

Frankie  Oatway The British actor will Interviewing the British and Commonwealth title holder Georgie Groves on the 19th June on British TV

General breakdown of history of the upton brothers and the clubs they thought for and are currently fighting for …..Along with these details will be some background relating to the trainers they spent time with and the likes of the Commonwealth and Lonsdale Title holder “Georgie Groves”….. The club that gave these group of boxers a chance and a steer in the right direction from as young as seven years old….. Was and is now considered to be one of the best boxing coaches in the British isles….. This man is a great friend of mine……. And has now made history in the sport by having produced not only an Olympic champion but now the Commonwealth and Lonsdale belt title holder “Georgie Groves” …..

The name of this man who runs in my mind one of the best training and coaching facilities in England is Micky Delaney .The club is the Dale Boxing or better known as the Dale Youth Boxing Club…… Micky Delaney has shown how a tiny little place with limited resources in the middle of one of the most run down and working class environments in Nottingdale in the centre of Nottinghill Central London like any London Borough a rough and ready place to be brought up in …….A place where i spent a lot of time as a kid  i decided to joined the Dale Youth ……And had a go at the sport of boxing myself  like all the local kids in the neighbourhood turned to this as a way of escaping the tough and hostile environment……. Especially for the working classes this area was no stranger to crime and villainy so when Micky took control of the Dale Youth he reached out to not only the young talent but invited the families too…. it was an instant family set up from the point Micky took it on the chin so to speak …By dedicating his own time energy and  some times his own money to prove to these kids that there was another root they could go down in life….. Without looking at the production line of crime on the streets of London…

I used to work with Micky for many years at  BBC TV in Shepherds Bush  we used to work the shows building sets in the studios in Wood lane……  But when everyone who went home to there families after work Micky wold spend his spare time looking after the kids in the way of nurturing the new talent as young as 5 years old….. From there this man  has produced without doubt one of the best boxing hopefuls this country has ever produced namely Georgie groves…. Along with Georgie’s success and again trained and spend time looking for hopefuls in the sport appeared a group of local kids  four brothers between the ages of at the time seven  to fourteen…. Who go by the names of Anthony being the youngest Sonny Pauly and the eldest James Upton…  A Group of dedicated boxers from Nottingdale along with there talent and being possible contenders for 2012 Olympics.. These group of boys were among many other kids that showed Micky how much in the way of determination along with big hearts will with any luck could be the new names to look out for in the sport….

This group of youngsters were initially trained and boxed for the dale youth who Micky took under his wing but also due to a location and family ties to east London had to relocate and this meant joining and leaving Micky’s nursery of great fighters…. Now the boys joined Dagenham Boxing Club again instantly had more trophy’s to add to the cabinets.And like Micky the club decided immediately that this group of boys had legs to make it in one of the toughest sports… Again the location issue resurfaced and like before had to move and again joined West Ham Boxing Club in East London instantly while there gained more recognition and like before now fount them selves boxing in one of London’s finest venues that being York Hall in Bethnal Green achievements included gold medals for all manor of bouts and all four brothers were now being taken very seriously. Being from London but the family roots and ties to Ireland there big dream came as no so surprise when they along with there father that the only way to go is to the top and take the boys to Ireland .And now there the boxing fraternity are now fully aware in Ireland how much potential this group of boys have now fighting for one of the best gyms in Ireland and one of the best managers in Ireland Gerry Story MBE. They fulfilled not only there dream but there fathers too and now box for the Ireland team….The proof is in the pudding as they say just look at the success story and how big an impact the likes of Georgie Groves has made on the world  if you like i would like to compare him… To the great Henry Cooper who not only conducts his self like a true gentleman but never forgot like the Upton brothers were there bread was buttered and the gratitude they give  to my good friend Micky Delany ……Please watch the televsed interview on the 19th June 2011 on  Youtube  produced by BBTV and hosted by myself Frankie Oatway
