Former WBF Champ turned promoter Carl Greaves recently announced that he will be presenting boxing fans the opportunity to spend an evening with one of the greatest British boxers of all time - undisputed Super Middleweight Champion of the World Joe Calzaghe - at the Cedric Ford Pavilion, Newark Showground, Newark, Nottingham on Saturday 8th October.
It’s not just the fans that are turning out in force to meet the legendary Champ on the 8th October, so are boxing and TV stars such as British Super Bantamweight Champion Jason ‘2 Smooth’ Booth, Former British, Commonwealth and European Super Bantamweight Champion Esham Pickering, former IBO Welterweight Champion Jawid Khaliq, Bantamweight prospect Josh Wale, actor and former Central Area Featherweight Champion Steve Bell and former Coronation Street actress Rachel Leskvac amongst others.
Carl Greaves, who won the World Boxing Federation Super Featherweight title with a sensational and totally dominating performance over Ghana’s Ben Odamattey in 2003, said earlier today. “I’m proud to put on this very special event to give boxing fans the chance to meet one of the greatest British boxers ever.
Joe is without doubt one of Britain’s biggest stars, during his long career he secured all the major belts. Not only did he win all the major belts but he beat the World’s best, Bernard Hopkins, Roy Jones Jnr., Mikkel Kessler, Jeff Lacy, Robin Read, Chris Eubank amongst others.
Really, I’m not surprised that star boxers, such as Easham, Jason, Jawid and Josh were amongst the first to buy tickets, I mean Joe is a true living legend.
Ticket sales for the event have been going really well, in fact we’ve already sold out the Gold tickets, so I’m expecting a very good turnout on the night.”
On the 8th October those lucky enough to attend will get the chance to not only have a chat with Joe but will also be treated to a four course meal and a photo opportunity with him.
There will also be an auction of Sporting memorabilia, a raffle, as well as entertainment, comprising of a comedian and singer Liam Moore, the winner of Stars In Your Eyes as Phil Collins.
An Evening With Joe Calzaghe will be held at the Cedric Ford Pavilion, Newark Showground, Newark, Nottinghamshire on Saturday the 8th October.
