Fred Brophy’s Boxing Troupe
May 5, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Now the only remaining Tent Boxing show in Australia, Fred is the third generation of Fred Brophy’s to run the tents. With a troupe of 12 prize fighters, from all walks of life, like his grandfather and father before him, he travels Queensland, offering young contenders the chance to make it big in the ring. The annual boxing calendar kicks off each year around February or March in Kilkivan. All dates and locations can be found on their Facebook page @Fred Brophy’s Boxing Troupe.
Held at the Cracow Hotel, a genuine Aussie country pub (owned by Fred himself), where the beers are cold and locals spin stories full of laughter. Looking more like a home than hotel, the entrance to the Cracow pub is somewhat deceiving. Once inside, you enter a time capsule where bric-a-brac and memorabilia stockpiled over decades, garnish the walls and ceilings.
