Also from the world of boxing top coaches Johnny Eames and Alan Smith and referees John Lewis and Geoff Hines will also be taking to the pitch. The boxers team will also include Eastenders star Sylvester Williams.
Speaking at his world famous Ultrachem TKO Gym, in Canning Town, esteemed champion coach Johnny Eames said, “Obviously after our fundraising event, on behalf of the Indee Rose Trust, it’s nice to show our support to James and be involved in his charity event to raise money for such a good cause.
James is leading the way by organising this even to raise funds for two upcoming amateur boxing clubs. They are an important part of our sport and without our support these amateur clubs will just fade away.” and then cheekily added, “Hopefully we’ll get to be the first to see their future stars.”
