New Deal Means Etches Is Sharp In And Out Of The Ring

SHEFFIELD puncher Adam ‘The Bomber’ Etches is getting stylish and doing his bit for charity thanks to a new sponsorship deal with Pellicano Menswear.

The London-based brand will be supplying him with formal and casual wear to ensure he’s as sharp out of the ring as in it. Pellicano has also worked with Adam to produce a limited range of Italian shirts, with 20% of sales going to the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Adam has been an ambassador for the charity since 2013 and has helped to raise tens of thousands of pounds for its teenage cancer unit.


Etches vows to KO Khomitsky

ADAM ETCHES says he’ll do what Martin Murray and Frank Buglioni couldn’t and stop Sergey Khomitsky.

In a career spanning 16 years, the Belarusian has only failed to hear the final bell three times, with middleweight superstar Gennady Golovkin being the only man to legitimately take him out.

It has been a stuttering start to 2015 for British boxing with January delivering a couple of cancellations that saw the handbrake temporarily applied. Firstly, Anthony Crolla being cruelly robbed of his lightweight world title opportunity and then heavyweight sensation Anthony Joshua pulling out of his contest with Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson at O2 Arena in London with a back injury.

Thankfully, ‘temporarily’ is the operative term here and a year, which started in disappointment, has turned full circle with a series of announcements and upcoming events that have the fans purring and the vehicle moving forward once more.
