Scott Quigg boxing workshop is a huge success

UNBEATEN British and WBA-interim super-bantamweight champion Scott Quigg hosted the first ever Hatton Academy workshop on Saturday afternoon and it was an event enjoyed by all.

The Bury ace, 24, demonstrated the skills which have helped get him to the top and then handed out tips to individual participants.

Such was the response that many of those taking part wanted to book a place on the next workshop straight away.

“It was a great day, everybody got stuck in and had a go, no matter what level they are at and enjoyed themselves. It was fun,” Scott said.

“I’m honoured to be a part of the workshop. It gave me a chance to give something back to boxing and an opportunity to meet the fans. I’m looking forward to the next one.”

Jon Eade, the Hatton Academy’s training and educational director, added: “The response to the workshop was fantastic, we had people travelling far and wide to get to it and afterwards we had people rebooking for the next workshop.

“We had Scott participating and Hatton boxers Sergey Rabchenko and Sonny Upton popped in to meet those taking part and offered some more help and advice.”

The next Hatton Academy workshop will take place on Saturday March 30 and will be hosted by St Helens star Martin Murray.

Martin is currently preparing for the biggest fight of his life – a world middleweight title clash with Sergio Martinez in Argentina on April 27.
