The future good citizens of Nottingham will roar on local favourite Carl Froch tonight when he faces Sergey Tatevosyan in a 12 round international super middleweight contest at the Nottingham Arena, after event sponsors GoldenPalace.com donated 100 tickets to his favourite charity.
Over the last year Froch has become a patron for the 'Help A Nottinghamshire Child' scheme at the 'NCCL Galleries of Justice' museum, one of the Midland's leading Tourist Attractions.
In between the 1780's and 1980's the museum site was used as prison and courts.
Now its all about prevention rather than punishment.
The Galleries of Justice also functions as a national centre for citizenship, through which it operates the 'Help a Nottinghamshire Child' scheme.
Through the project, children in the area take part in 'Good Citizenship' activities with both their schools and families, encouraging them to take pride in their environment and live as good citizens. Froch has been behind it from day one.
"Every child deserves the right to have the life skills and tools to make the right decisions to stay within the law," said Froch. "That is why I think this scheme is so important.
“It is excellent that the children of the area have such easy access to it. If by coming to see me fight they can see the benefits of clean, honest living and we can make some kind of impact, then all the better.
Many of the children who have attended these classes will be at the Nottingham Arena for this evening's 'Cobra's Hood' event promoted by Hennessy Sports and GoldenPalace.com.
Froch takes on this highly ranked Russian Sergey Tatevosyan as he aims to build on his number 3 world ranking to land a genuine world title shot by the end of they year.
GoldenPalace.com has donated 100 tickets to 'Help a Nottinghamshire Child,' which have been taken up by pupils from schools in Clifton and young people who attend projects at the Galleries.
"It will be nice to have them shouting me on," said Froch. "I would like to thank GoldenPalace.com for giving them the opportunity and for backing this event. This isn't your normal sponsorship. This is meaningful, highly beneficial support."
