Manchester, England - (April 13, 2022) - The BOXXER Series heads to Manchester on Saturday May 14 with an all-action, one-night tournament which will see eight of the nation’s brightest cruiserweight prospects battle it out live on Sky Sports, the UK’s biggest sports television platform.
Substantial prize money and career-breakout opportunities are on the line in a tournament which will showcase the depth of talent in one of British boxing’s most competitive divisions.
