Stonebridge Boxing Club which is based in Kassinga House, Winchelsea Road, is holding its first boxing show in almost 20 years.

The event, which is support by BBC’s Children in Need and Brent Healthwatch, will see 36 boxers aged 11 plus display their skills across 18 bouts.

The club was founded in 2010 and works with more than 100 young people to stop them becoming involved with gangs and criminality.

It also encourages young people to lead better and healthier lifestyles. The club faced closure due to financial difficulties until a sponsor came forward following an appeal in the Brent & Kilburn Times.

Marine Cisse, a 27-year-old fighter from Queens Park, said: “I’m very excited about competing on my first boxing show. We have all trained very hard and I’m delighted that I will have my family and friends there to cheer me on”.

Famous sportmen who have trained at the club include James DeGale, Audley Harrison, Amir Khan and Anthony Joshua.

Cllr Zaffar Van Kalwala, Labour councillor for Stonebridge, added: “I’m delighted that Stonebridge is organising this great event.

“It will give our young people a fantastic opportunity to show their skills and talents in front of the home crowd.”

The fighters will touch gloves at 3pm and tickets priced at £10 for adults and £5 for under-16s are available at the door.
