Woodhouse boxing club, which has been raising funds for Sheffield Children's Hospital for the past five years, is hoping to raise more money for the hospital when it gets to host the event on December 4.

Owner Chris Smedley said the standard tickets, priced at £45, are still up for grabs after the VIP tickets for the Ringside are all sold out.

He said: "We are so happy to announce that the VIP tickets have all gone. We just need to sell the £45 tickets so you can still meet Frank in Sheffield!"
