TheHermonApps, in collaboration with the Irish-Boxing team, today are very proud to announce a new breakthrough development in the accessibility of boxing in Ireland. The site that has lead the way in promoting Irish boxing and relaying Irish boxing news to the world for over 11 years will make groundbreaking advancements in sharing all things Irish boxing with the world.
Irish boxing will now follow in the footsteps of the very successful Irish sporting bodies in having its very own free App available on iOS (apple) devices. The creation of Irish-boxing 1.1 will allow free access to news and information on Irish boxers and boxing to those in Ireland and around the world.
The exciting and entertaining new app will allow fans to learn more about their icons, and follow their progress from the comfort of their own phone. Boasting a vibrant theme with games, a quiz and a personal score card system that will allow you to play judge on any fight also opens Irish boxing and hence Irish boxing to a younger audience, in turn generating new fans for the growing sport.
The App was created and designed in conjunction with the Hermon Apps, a new and exciting app company based in the UK, who have been of great support to Irish boxing. The app has already received huge praise and support from the top Irish boxers and the Boxing Union of Ireland. Excitement surrounding the Free app and its capabilities is growing.
BUI president Mel Christle stated "Anything that lifts the sport is to be welcomed and the app if successful will be groundbreaking for Irish boxing"
Speaking about the forthcoming launch of the App Irish-boxing editor Jonny Stapleton said, "We are so grateful to Herman Apps and the great job they have done. This app is one of only a few boxing apps out there at present. It makes Irish boxing news more accessible to Irish boxing fans and boxing fans in general. It also helps us further spread news on Irish boxing to more people, which we believe can only help the sport in Ireland. We are proud of the job we do, we provideIrish boxing and Irish boxing fans a great service and do it for the love of the game and hopefully this will help us improve that service. We hope our 220,000 readers enjoy the new services and many more are exposed to what we feel is a great site."
Former Irish Title holder and number 10 in the top ten pound for pound listings for Ireland, Anthony Fitzgerald has noted "Its a great opportunity for the boxing community at home and abroad to keep track of fights and news, it will open the audience of boxing to a younger and more diverse audience."
