Chandlers lends support to new boxing gym
We are delighted to announce that we have become the kit sponsor of Pej's Allstars helping the boxing gym to go on to achieve even more success.
Having only opened in January, the gym had a great start to the year. As well as achieving success in shows in Maidstone, Essex and London, the gym recently celebrated a hugely successful sold out show at Margate's Winter Gardens. During the event, which featured 12 fights, four of which were title battles, fighters from Pej's Allstars had a 100% success rate.
Rob Muir (pictured right) came out on top in the Southern Area Light Heavyweight title and Jamie Seal (pictured left) won the Southern Area Cruiserweight title. Other wins came from Lee Strutt in the Novice Cruiserweight title and Hayden Allen who won the Novice Middleweight title.
Malwai Nijar, Owner of the Pej's Allstars Boxing Gym, commented, "Before we took over the building it stood derelict for 10 years, but we're delighted that the council saw the benefits and wholeheartedly gave us permission ot develop the building and change its use. Due to the size and facilities that we have installed, it is now the best boxing gym in Kent.
"We're very lucky to have Takaloo as our Head Coach, who is a three time world champion at two different weights, alongside Mario Michael. I would like to thank Chandlers for their sponsorship enabling us to push on to achieve the success that we have."
Lee Blythe, Business Development Executive at Chandlers' Thanet branch, added, "Being able to support groups in areas local to our branches is extremely important to Chandlers. Since the gym opened Pej's Allstars have had some fantastic results and we wish them every success for the future."
