Nine of the club's boxers competed at the non-title event in front of a healthy crowd, including Bare Knuckle Boxing featherweight champion Tyler Goodjohn and former European Lightweight legend Dave 'Boy' Green.

Green was on hand to present awards to each boxer who took part in the event held at Ely College, with fighters as young as 10-years-old winning a special trophy.
