Reigning Midland boxing champion Steve Saville aka ‘The Wednesfield Bomber’ has pledged to repay local businesses and organisations who helped him after his personal gym was damaged by a fire earlier this month.
Steve is hoping to bring home the English title at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on September 18th as a way of repaying those who have provided him with training facilities whilst his gym is rebuilt.
He said: “The response has been fantastic. The Village Hotel on Junction 10 (Walsall) gave me a free membership so I could do my fitness work there, while Wolverhampton Boxing Club literally handed me the keys so I could do my pad-work.”
“Now I will repay them with the English title, the situation has only made me hungrier.”
Steve’s previous title-winning fight against Baz Carey is up for the Midland Boxing Councilâ€™s Fight of the Year award next month – so if you’re a boxing fan make sure you get tickets for the upcoming fight at the Civic Hall on September 18th by contacting the box office on 0870 320 7000 or promoter Paul â€˜PJâ€™ Rowson on 07976 283 157, it’s bound to be a fight to remember!
