Throughout the Seventies and Eighties there were other clubs from the
GOLD RIVER BOXING CLUB to the VICTORIA ATHLETIC ASOIATION (Boxing),
but the only ones still in around includes the NANAIMO BOXING CLUB
which was formed in 1971 by BRIAN ZELLEY and DAN WRIGHT and the
COMOX VALLEY BOXING CLUB formed about 25 years ago by
LLOYD ANDERSON and JACK SNAITH.

Both Lloyd and Jack were members of the Nanaimo Boxing Club and
Lloyd also trained in Campbell River.
