Jono to support Norfolk fighters in televised boxing show

Norfolk's former European and British lightweight boxing champion Jon Thaxton will be a special guest at the launch of a unique live internet televised 'Fists of Fury' event in May.

Thaxton is scheduled to be in Norfolk's ex-world kickboxing champion Gary Briggs' corner when the Norfolk fighter takes part in an eight-man 'Prizefighter' style boxing contest which will be broadcast live from Southsea on May 14 over the internet.

King's Lynn's Brad Newman and Watlington's Stevo Carter also feature on the card which will herald the launch of the new 'fightnightlive' internet television channel - the brainchild of King's Lynn's ex-European and British champion Dell Mann.

Mann has also linked up with the Double G sportswear clothing firm who will provide branded clothing on fight night. The entire four-hour internet broadcast is available for a flat-rate �3 fee. To subscribe and for further information visit
