APPG on Boxing Summer Dinner Event with Guest Speaker Ricky Hatton

On Monday 4th June the APPG on Boxing hosted its first Summer Dinner in the Houses of Parliament. The event was sponsored by William Hill and StubHub.

The dinner bought together our Parliamentary and Corporate members to celebrate boxing and discuss how we can build greater profile for the sport at all levels in Government and across the UK.

We were delighted to have former professional boxer Ricky Hatton MBE join us as our keynote speaker for the event. Ricky has been lauded as one of the most beloved and popular British boxers of all time, having held multiple world championships at light-welterweight and one at welterweight.

After the speech, Spencer Oliver - former boxer, Sky Sports pundit and host of the Pound for Pound Podcast with Jake Wood - chaired a Q&A session with Ricky to open the discussion to the membership, covering a range of issues and topics relating to the sport.
