This Is Boxing is a new revolutionary sporting event created by urban millennials for urban millennials. Over the years UK boxing has seen a growth in interest from a wider audience and has become an increasingly popular sporting entertainment with the likes of Anthony Joshua, David Haye, Tony Bellew and Conor McGregor spearheading the movement.
This Is Boxing aims to redefine traditional boxing events to one that attracts a younger, cooler crowd. The event aims to do this by combining white-collar boxing fights with upcoming urban musicians, the best DJs and comedic commentary to keep guests entertained all night long!
