The Box Cup - Supporting Amateur Boxing!

Today I'm at the launch of this year's Box Cup that will take place 19th-22nd June 2015 at Alexandra Palace.

Over 300 boxers - male & female will come together from all over Europe to compete at this annual event and having come up through the ranks of Amateur Boxing myself, it's great to give back a little.

Amateur Boxing is so important! It teaches discipline, respect and control - not to mention promoting fitness and social skills to loads of people from all walks of life - including me! Life could have been very different if I hadn't joined my local boxing club all those years ago.

Great to see William Hill supporting The Box Cup for the next 3 years too. They believe that sport can provide a positive influence in so many young people's lives to keep them off the streets and to get them into the gym and I'm fully behind that!
