FIGHT NIGHT: Businesses sponsor Croxley boxer’s world title fight in Watford

 Published on: 7th June 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A boxing promotion that is set to see a top Croxley Muay Thai boxing champion fight for a world title in Watford has partnered with several local businesses, including MyLocalNews.

Roar Muay Thai Fight Show has announced it will be working with Exi-Go, Thumbs Up! and MyLocalNews to support the WBC Super Featherweight Under 18 Muay Thai World Title fight. This will see Watford hosting the WBC Muay Thai title for female fighters for the first time.

The fight is being held at the PRYZM nightclub in Watford on Saturday, June 17, and will see Swedish fighter Zahra Al-Mougrabi versus Croxley resident Ellie Harber.

Nik Allen, editor-in-chief of MyLocalNews, said: “MyLocalNews is a publication that serves the local community and when Roar reached out to us for support, how could we refuse? Especially as we have been following and supporting Ellie’s journey for a number of years. We are pleased to be part of this big event.”

Michael Robinson, managing director of Exi-Go, emphasised that while an IT company may seem like an unlikely supporter, they are aligned in many ways.

He said: “We know how important it is to remain agile and adapt to an ever-changing landscape, constantly updating our skills to stay competitive. Therefore, it made perfect sense for us to partner with Roar to deliver the first WBC female fight in Watford.”

Henri Salameh, Santok Group’s commercial and marketing director, said: “Thumbs Up! is a brand that delivers anything but the ordinary. We design and create extraordinary award-winning gifts, gadgets and tech that are sold in major high street and online retailers across the world.

“The fit with the Roar Championship, in particular the WBC World Title that is being fought in Watford, made sense as our HQ is in Ruislip, and we believe in supporting our local communities and surrounding neighbours. It is great that a local fighter is one of the fighters.”

Katy Rishover, Roar’s co-promoter, said: “We recognise that the current economic climate often means that sponsorships get cut, so we are pleased that all three businesses came on board at such a time. Without organisations such as Exi-Go, Thumbs Up! and MyLocalNews, we would find it hard to put such fights on our show.”
