Team Fury host charity dinner for children's hospitals

Team Fury

Team Fury will host a charity evening at De Vere Whites Hotel in Bolton on Thursday 10 October, with all proceeds donated to Christie’s Children’s Hospital and the special care baby unit at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital.

Both institutions hold a special place in the heart of the Fury family after Prince, the son of heavyweight star Tyson Fury, spent three weeks in the intensive care unit last year following a bout of pneumonia and bronchiolitis which saw him enter a coma during his lowest ebb.

The two-year-old is now back fighting fit, and the upcoming event will see guests enjoy a lavish five course meal, a host of entertainment including comedians, singer Wayne Devlin and a Q&A with Tyson, Hughie and Peter Fury.

Tickets for the event are priced at £100 each or a table of ten for £1000. Contact Asif Vali via email on asif@platinum-c.com or call 01204 528898.

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
