THE European Games begin on Friday (June 21) at the Sport Palace in Minsk, Belarus.
GB have a strong squad going with veteran super-heavyweight Frazer Clarke leading the charge. Their men’s team is coming off a gruelling training camp in Kazakhstan. “It’s the fifth time I’ve been there,” Frazer said. “I don’t think anyone in the world’s been to Kazakhstan five times apart from me. So I went there, I knew what it was all about, I knew you always come back from there in a good place. It’s hard training out there and there’s so many boxers. There were five [at 91kgs to spar]. They were all at a good level, it was all good competitive sparring.”
