Owlerton Greyhound Stadium is backing its own home-grown talent by sponsoring semi-professional boxer Kevin Skill.

The 22-year-old cruiser-weight fighter, who works as a steward at Owlerton, boasts an impressive record of wins and hopes to turn professional.

The stadium has sponsored the two-time national amateur boxing champion ahead of his next fight against Matt Savage.

Kevin, of Parson Cross, said: “I’m very grateful to Owlerton for providing me with the backing in my quest to become a professional boxer.”
