Nigel Benn to visit Arbroath

ARBROATH fight fans and fitness fanatics will have the rare opportunity next weekend to train with a boxing legend.

Former middleweight and super middleweight world boxing champion Nigel Benn will drop into the Arbroath branch of British Military Martial Arts (BMMA) on Lindsay Street from 8.15 a.m. on Saturday, August 25.

As a former member of the British Army, Benn, was chosen as ambassador for the group which supports ex-military personnel in creating a career path after their service has ended.

BMMA trainer Jason Aston explained: “He’s basically running a boxing seminar with the guys. We are hoping it brings a bit of much needed publicity to the town, especially with all the things closing down at the moment.”

There are a few tickets left at £39 for the seminar but they are selling rapidly. To buy one call Jason Aston on 07913695790.
