Saturday 5 March saw the ‘No Surrender Round 10’ boxing event take place at the Greenhill Hotel, Wigton.
It was a sell out afternoon and David Allen were proud to support the event which was hosted by Nemesis Boxing Club and Bricktop Promotions from Maryport.
After enjoying a delicious lunch the entertainment started and we were treated to a great sporting afternoon of boxing.
The highlight of the day for us had to be when Jake Osgood of New Blood, Carlisle won his fight against Huw Glancy from Kendal Boxing. Jake is trained by our very own Business Software Specialist, David Scott, who accompanied him ringside. Jake had been boxing the previous evening, winning his fight in Ayr, so came into this event feeling positive – and rightly so as the referee called a stop to the fight after 45 seconds of round 1 declaring Jake the winner by KO (knock out)! Well done Jake and David, we’re very proud of you both (pictured right).
As the afternoon turned into early evening we enjoyed 10 bouts of Semi-Pro boxing featuring fighters who had travelled from as far as Glasgow and Newcastle to face our local Cumbrian lads. We were joined by a number of other local businesses in attendance and it was great to have the opportunity to catch up with clients and friends informally.
We would like to thank the organisers of the event and the Greenhill Hotel for hosting a fantastic sporting occasion and we look forward to the next event.
