Paul Gill said: "By supporting this big fight night you will not only be supporting boxing, you will be supporting the youth education programme which this club promotes at every training session.

"The boxing helps with the youngster's concentration and co-ordination and I've seen it improve their performances in school.

"The club is also affiliated with the Chatteris Royal British Legion, these youths give their time to assist with the door to door poppy sales; they also parade and lay a wreath on Armistice Sunday."

The club is sponsored by Global Tiles and companies and individuals can sponsor a bout on the night, with money going to Chatteris Boxing Club.
