Frank box­ing clever

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Working For You - Gra­ham Miller

There are still some tick­ets avail­able for what prom­ises to be a knock­out per­for­mance from for­mer world heavy­weight cham­pion Frank Bruno, when he rolls into Air­drie to­mor­row night.

The beloved boxer will be a guest of Air­drieo­ni­ans Sup­port­ers’ Trust at the town’s Work­ing Men’s Club.

Bruno is one of the most recog­nis­able box­ers in Bri­tish his­tory and took on some of the world’s best heavy­weights dur­ing his il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer.

He be­came heavy­weight cham­pion by tak­ing the WBC crown in 1995, de­feat­ing Oliver McCall at a packed Wem­b­ley Sta­dium.

Bruno boasts an im­pres­sive record, win­ning 40 of his 45 bouts and 38 by knock­out.

The evening prom­ises to be a frank dis­cus­sion with Air­drie Sup­port­ers’ Trust favourite Ross Owen, as the cham­pion talks about his fights in the ring and his bat­tle with men­tal health is­sues out­side the ropes.

There are three pack­ages avail­able for the event:

VIP Tick­ets cost­ing £ 85; Deluxe at £50 and Stan­dard at £30 each.

All funds raised go to­wards the Foot­ball For Ev­ery­one projects, in­clud­ing the Di­a­monds Sen­sory Room at the Ex­cel­sior Sta­dium for autis­tic chil­dren.
