Barry McGuigan's bid to help NEETS with boxing academies

Former British, European and world feather weight champion boxer Barry McGuigan wants to reach the youngsters the Government sometimes finds so hard to reach - those out of education and employment, the so-called NEETS - with boxing academies.

He hopes to help disadvantaged young people become fit for education and employment through a ten week course.
