Three Lions Promotions is proud to be hosting “The Tribute”, a memorial show in support of The late Muhammad Ali, who passed away exactly one year prior to the shows date, June 3rd 2016. “We are thrilled to be bringing back yet another professional boxing gala, and with the events proceeds being donated to Have a Heart Cayman Islands, Hamilton’s true support will shine!”. Stated Promoter Daniel Otter. “Our city’s show last year was a sell out, we look forward to showcasing our Country’s boxing talent on such an honourable night and with a great cause, we feel this show is going to be a real stand out!”. Added Otter.
For Steven, winning the belt in his hometown last October was a dream come true, but defending is one step further. “Winning it was such a blessing and has brought local awareness for the sport of boxing and with such a great cause for this show, Have a Heart, I am even more excited to defend the title” stated Wilcox. Wilcox was announced publicly as Sports Ambassador to Health City Cayman Islands back in March of this year and will be donating a portion of his fight purse to Have a Heart Cayman Islands, who works alongside Health City Cayman Islands. “With Steven’s generous commitment and continual efforts, he is helping to provide life saving heart surgery to children around the world”.
