Sean continued "Ultimately it helps grow the sport of boxing at grass roots which is already flourishing at the highest level, with the likes of the very talented Tom 'The Machine' Knight and Olympian Luke Campbell."

Stevie commented "Without the help of sponsors like Sean and Vuba, these events would be impossible to put on. I really do appreciate all their support for the Academy over recent years."
