Charity Boxing Highlights - Watch The Video Now

The Connaught Rooms

The evening of Thursday May 9th saw almost three hundred FM and industry related professionals gather at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms for a night of fine dining, good wine and sporting entertainment.

Joined by champions old and new, it was an excellent opportunity for industry big hitters to meet their sporting equivalents such as Scott Welch (former British Heavyweight Champion, World Title Challenger and star of the film ‘Snatch’), Philip Bowes (current Commonwealth Super Lightweight Champion), James Cook MBE (Former British and European Super-Middleweight Champion), Nicky Cook (former British, Commonwealth & European Featherweight Champion and WBO Super Featherweight Champion) and John Salako (former England footballer & coach and currently a pundit for Sky TV).

All for a good cause

The generosity and support of the guests was outstanding, with the current total raised for charity near the £4,500 mark.


In the ring

The main attraction was four bouts of professional boxing.  This was not a white collar or amateur affair but a serious line-up of pro-boxers taking to the ring.  And they did not hold back!  The main fight on Thursday’s card was Chris Eubank’s youngest son, in whom we saw many resemblances including a victory.
