As a Boxing Futures Brand Ambassador you will become the face of Boxing Futures and help the CEO in promoting the work of the charity as widely as possible and encourage others to get involved and support us.
With boxing being our ‘tool’ for helping young people, connections in the boxing world are crucial in helping to promote what we do to fellow boxing aficionados and spread the word of our amazing work. It is key that our Brand Ambassadors know the charity and understand what motivates us in our work.
We would encourage you to attend as many delivery sessions, board meetings, and fundraising galas and events as possible to promote our activities and programmes.

I’ve been in working in sports broadcasting for the last 20 years almost, and I’ve been up to my neck in boxing for the last 10 as a commentator and pundit, these days for Sky Sports. There’s just nothing like boxing. It’s taken me to places I never thought I’d go to and caused me to meet people I never otherwise would have met. The best thing about it is that anyone can get involved. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, or what you’ve got or what you haven’t, everyone who walks through the gym door is offered the same support and that same sense of togetherness. All boxing asks in return is that you show up, respect yourself and each other, and try your best. You don’t even have to be any good, which was lucky for me. I am proud to be supporting Boxing Futures.
