Britain’s newest boxing stars Lawrence Okolie, Reece Bellotti and Charlie Edwards trained hundreds of young boxers in West London yesterday to raise money to help the victims Grenfell Tower fire which happened last week.

The boxers and trainers held boxing training session as collection buckets were filled to support the families and victims of the terrible blaze that destroyed countless families, and the sport was especially affected with the famous Dale Youth ABC calling the tower home.

“The boxing community came out for the event and it's the least I could do was show my face,” said Bellotti, who faces Jamie Speight for the WBC International Featherweight title. “I enjoyed going on the pads with some of the youngsters and raising some money for those effected at the Tower.”

“I know people that were personally effected by the Tower fire so it touched me even deeper,” said Okolie. “It's great to give something back especially as I'm currently in training so it's not too often I get to break out of that and meet up with people. It's great to be involved for the cause.”
