In a time where there is so much bad news going around, Matchroom Boxing is bringing some good news into the world. The promotion decided to donate 200 tickets per event at their Saturday Fight Night and PPV shows to the National Health Service. The NHS is a publicly funded healthcare system for the UK.
The tickets will last for 12 months from the day boxing resumes. There will be tickets available for Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev, Oleksandr Usyk’s heavyweight with Derek Chisora dn Dillian Whyte’s showdown with Alexander Povetkin.
Eddie Hearn is super optimistic about the program and is happy to help those that have helped so many.
“We’ve been thinking about how we can say thank you to the incredible NHS workers that have selflessly helped everybody through this COVID-19 crisis.”
Their generosity will provide workers with some getaway time from the grinding life they have been living in the last month due to COVID-19.
“They’ve been absolutely amazing and from our side at Matchroom Boxing we are announcing a new scheme for when we get back to our live shows where we will be giving away 200 tickets to NHS workers for every Saturday Fight Night and PPV show around the country from hopefully this summer forward.”
Matchroom Boxing Thanks The NHS
Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing are incredibly thankful to the NHS workers and knows without them, there would still be so much to do.
“We can’t thank you enough for all of your support. NHS workers, you have been absolutely incredible, and you are the pride of our country. Stay well everyone, stay safe, stay at home and we’ll get through this soon.”
While there are no fights scheduled for Matchroom Boxing until at least May, the promoter will be back in action soon enough with some of the best boxing in the world.
