Boxing legend Tyson Fury to be honoured at annual Nordoff Robbins Boxing Dinner
Music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins has once again teamed up with Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions to host an exciting evening of Championship Boxing on Monday 18th November, at the London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.
This year, the event will be sponsored by long-standing supporters of Nordoff Robbins, O2.
On the night, Frank Warren will present the prestigious ‘Nordoff Robbins Boxing Icon Award’ to ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury, in celebration of his sporting achievements and contribution to Boxing.
Now in its 11th Year, the event aims to raise all-important funds to help Nordoff Robbins, the UK’s leading music therapy charity that uses the power of music to enrich the lives of people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability. The event also raises funds for the London ex-Boxer Association.
Guests will be led through the evening by BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing veteran Anton du Beke, and an exclusive live performance from the legendary Rick Astley.
The event will feature a night of quality live boxing, including a battle for the WBO European Flyweight Championship between ‘Horny’ Harvey Horn and Ijaz Ahmed.
Past celebrity guests at the event have included presenter and philanthropist Katie Piper, Ska veterans Madness, EastEnders favourite Jamie Borthwick, pop-rock royalty Busted, stage star and singer Beverley Knight and English tenor Alfie Boe.
Previous boxing honourees include Ricky Hatton, David Haye and John Conteh, with Fury now being inducted into the Nordoff Robbins Boxing Dinner hall of fame.
