The USA will take on the UK at an exclusive boxing event, to be held at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday, May 3.

An elite team of amateur boxers from the US air bases in Mildenhall and Lakenheath fight homegrown British talent, most of whom train at a community run gym in Cambridge, with the evening culminating with a fight for the English Boxing League Middleweight title.

During the evening there will be a charity auction in support of Duchene’s Muscular Dystrophy, as well as an opportunity to win a prestigious piece of boxing memorabilia.

Tickets, from £25, are available to purchase online at www.theapex.co.uk — doors open at 7pm, with bouts starting at 8pm
