Boxers’ charity punch

Have your say

WESTON Park Hospital fundraisers were simply knocked out by a donation of almost £13,000 from a pair of young local boxers

Adam Etches, 20, from Birley, and Scott Jenkins, 20, from Chesterfield, were the main attraction at two boxing charity dinners organised by boxing promoter and local fundraiser Richard Poxon.

The young prospects, both on the books of Ricky Hatton’s promotion company, headlined the shows at the Doubletree by Hilton Sheffield Park Hotel, with the most recent event selling out in less than 24 hours.

The events raised a combined £12,722 for Weston Park Hospital.
