The Hammersmith Boxing Academy students host the British Lionhearts at the Mobile Boxing Arena.
The British Lionhearts and WSB join forces with Hammersmith Boxing Academy at Lyric Square, Hammersmith, Wednesday 11th March, to promote the WSB event, British Lionhearts Vs Ukraine match at York Hall.
The students from Hammersmith Boxing Academy were delighted to meet the British Lionhearts squad and talk boxing and careers. The public had the opportunity to watch some fantastic pad-work and boxing skills performed by both Lionhearts and Hammersmith Academy students. Enthusiastic onlookers also had the opportunity to take part in some one on one coaching with the academy students.
The aim of the event was to not only promote the WSB event but for the students to engage with the community and show the public their skills and talk about the unique opportunity they have taken on by combining their love of boxing with an educational approach.
There were smiles all around from the academy students as they had the opportunity to take photos and collect autographs from their boxing role models the British Lionhearts, British stars such as AIBA World Championships bronze medalist Anthony Fowler and Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Samuel Maxwell.
Head Coach Mike Hunter commented “It was a pleasure to see the students from Hammersmith Boxing Academy conduct themselves in such a professional and organised manor. The way they engaged with the public was impeccable and they should all be very proud, they are a credit to the academy and EHWLC.”
