During this week's Box Cleva session (on Monday 15th December 2014), we welcomed the former light-heavyweight champion, John Conteh, and the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Fergus McMullen, through our doors to present the Box Cleva participants with their awards.
Here, you can view what a Mercury Newspaper report had to say:
FORMER world light-heavyweight champion and Box Cleva patron John Conteh proved a knockout as guest of honour at Cheshunt Amateur Boxing Club.
Conteh came along to hand out awards to young members at the Albury Rise club.
He also spread the word about the Box Cleva initiative.
Conteh said: “I am honoured to be patron of such a fantastic initiative, it’s great to see the kids progress the way that they are, boxing is like no other sport, so for the kids to respond the way they’ve been doing is quite fantastic.”
Box Cleva is specifically aimed at 7- to 15-year-olds. It is a non- contact boxing class designed to instil fitness, discipline, healthy eating as well as drug and alcohol awareness.
Conteh, who won the world title in 1977, when he beat American Len Hutchings, joined Fergus McMullen, the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire at the Cheshunt club.
They handed out awards to 14 children, who have attended Box Cleva sessions.
The Hertfordshire-wide scheme Box Cleva is operated by Borehamwood Fire station commander Bob Williams.
Hertfordshire High Sheriff McMullen said: “I’ve been to a similar Box Cleva initiative in Watford, so was extremely pleased to come and see how this session compared.
“I have to say what a tremendous job that both Mark Bliss and Steve O’Hara are doing here. It’s no wonder they won the Mayor’s community award a couple of years back.
“I’ve spoken to the children's parents who tell me just how much they love the sessions, so it’s a massive thumbs up to Box Cleva.”
Cheshunt’s junior ABA champion Joe Voight also handed out medals.
