Corito for the past month has been training with UK's TRAD TKO professional boxing trainer Barry Smith.
Smith came to Malta to see what Corito was all about and was amazed on how much knowledge he had on boxing, without even having a boxing coach. "Billy diggs deep, he has a heart for boxing and i can see he was born to do this, all he needs is schooling and polishing, with my help he can achieve these goals', concluded Smith.
Whilst being under the wing of Barry Smith he also took on another boxing prosprect Steve Martin which the three are now named 'TEAM SMITH'
Leaving once again to go back to the UK, Barry Smith wrote about our maltese boxers on his facebook status saying "After working with Billy Corito Steve Martin and all the other guys I worked with this weekend , Malta has talent heart and passion for this sport, the boys from this island want it more than anyone I've ever seen in my boxing career, I will make a World champions from Malta, it is possible....'

A big thank you for giving Billy the oppertunity to train with Barry goes to Remax Tigne, Badass Burgers, Fortina Hotel and Mediasia Lounge.

Ticket can be purchased from Paul Borg (9900 3244) or at TeamSport.
