Praise for boxing venue after win

A councillor has praised the success of a boxing match at K2 Crawley that saw Northgate’s Ben Jones become European WBO Super Featherweight champion.

Cllr Vanessa Cumper (Con, West Green) said “It would have been a crying shame to have held the fight in another town. A huge well done to Ben, it was a very exciting to watch from my ringside seat.”
