Hooks ABC will be holding their fifth annual show in memory of the late Luke Fitzpatrick tonight (Thursday).
Luke (pictured right) was stabbed to death in May 2012 in Dollis Hill and Hooks trainer Steve Newland is pleased that the Salvatorian College in Harrow – where the event will be hosted – continue to show their support.
He said: “It will be an emotional night, of course. I knew Luke all his life, and his father [Bernie] is a lifelong friend of mine.
“Boxing comes second on a night like this, but we will hopefully have a good show. It’s what Luke would have wanted.”
The fight of the night involves Obi Egbunike, who will be defending his Southern Area middleweight title, with a host of supporting bouts also taking place.
