“A platform we definitely need in the UK that fuses sports and music together into the same event for the culture!” – Link Up TV
Following the success of their first two seasons, This Is Boxing returns for their third Boxing & Music promotion on Sunday 25th November. Taking place at York Hall in Bethnal Green, this event is targeted at casual sport fans, who seek exciting fight nights and epic music performances. Sky Sports Boxing pundit Spencer Fearon will be returning to host the main stage once again, and joining him via live commentary will be JD Undisputed podcast Pep Talk UK.
Building on their existing base of supporters and partners such as Link Up TV who are confirmed to live stream to thousands yet again, A-Jewellers have been announced as leading sponsors for the platform, who offer a ‘buy, sell or trade’ service for luxury jewellery, along with Happy Down and Chosen Few Athletics.
This season there will be a total of 12 fights, including the much anticipated headline fight where Lee Devine and Ryan Lee will fight for the newly vacant This Is Boxing Championship title belt. A series of musical performances in between fights are also not to be missed, with NSG & D-Block Europe headlining this Season of This Is Boxing.
With 1000 attendees at each event, followed by over 50,000+ live streams across YouTube and Facebook via Link Up TV, This Is Boxing have solidified their position as one of the leading white-collar boxing promotions in the UK, whilst still maintaining their accessible approach towards it’s audience.
“Over the years UK boxing has seen a growth in interest from a wider audience and has become an increasingly popular sporting entertainment with the likes of Anthony Joshua, David Haye, Tony Bellew and Conor McGregor spearheading the movement. ‘White-collar’ boxing provides a good opportunity to see fresh, relatable boxing talent from home-grown UK boxers, giving them a platform to showcase their fighting skills.” Ant Opara, Director
This month will be bigger and better, with the focus for the future being to connect more aspiring boxers with industry professionals. The night will be rounded off with an exclusive VIP after party at The Curtain Hotel & Members Club.
