Twenty-four young boxers from disadvantaged backgrounds throughout the UK are set to benefit from a unique award - courtesy of Maverick Stars Trust.
The fighters all competed at the National Association of Boys and Girls Clubs Championships. Former competitors in the tournament include Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, Tyson Fury and current GB Boxer Will Cawley.
More than 2,000 boxers started the journey in 2019 at local county-rounds across the country – that number eventually whittled down to the winners.
The Maverick Stars ‘Boxing Development Award’ consists of a package of prizes including: club subs paid for a year, team building days, JD Sports voucher, training kit and boxing gloves along with and a masterclass at GB Boxing Headquarters in Sheffield with lead performance coach Micky Driscoll.
