The fundraiser, which featured 12 bouts, starred children as young as six year old.

Gym Manager Mick King who helped to organise the event said: “As well as sharpening their boxing skills, shows like this provide our youngsters with the experience of boxing in front of an audience - something that proves invaluable when they are 11 years old, get their ABA Amateur Boxing Cards & start appearing before 200 plus crowds around Yorkshire.”
