Spalding Round Tablers were holding no punches when organising this year’s Premier Boxing Event – the special guest was British and European heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

This was the 21st annual event and was held at Springfields Events and Conference Centre in Spalding on Saturday night.

More than 500 people turned out for a knockout night of boxing, featuring the Police and Community Boxing Association of Great Britain and the British Army Boxing Team.

Tyson Fury entertained guests with a talk after a three-course meal, before watching 12 bouts in the ring.

He must have been a true inspiration for young members of the Spalding Amateur Boxing Club who also went along on the night.

Organiser Tom Bradshaw said it had been a successful night, estimating £10,000 had been raised for local charities and good causes.

Tyson Fury was auctioneer for the night, with items such as Chris Eubank and Sugar Ray Leonard signed boxing gloves up for grabs.

Tom said: “Events such as these really highlight what is at the heart of Round Table.

“It’s about having a laugh with friends whilst raising much-needed funds for great causes.”
