Boxer joins fight to keep fitness programme running in Derbyshire

Have your say

Sheffield ex-World Champion boxer Johnny Nelson has joined the fight to keep a boxing fitness programme running in Derbyshire.

The Ozbox scheme, used to get youngsters off the streets, is used by around 9,000 youngsters a week but Derbyshire Police is pulling the funding from March.

More than 700 people have signed a petition against the plan.

Boxer Johnny Nelson said “Keeping Ozbox open in Derbyshire is a very important task.”
