Fight fans will get the chance to put their questions to a panel of boxing’s best ahead of the World title unification blockbuster between Carl Frampton MBE and Scott Quigg at the National Football Museum in Manchester tonight (Thursday February 25).
The National Football Museum hosts the fans forum, chaired by Sky Sports’ Head of Boxing Adam Smith, and we’re delighted to announce that Manchester’s own WBA World Lightweight champion Anthony Crolla will join former World Middleweight king Darren Barker and former World Cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson to give fans an insight into the lead up to a World title bout, along with former European Super-Bantamweight champion Spencer Oliver.
Joe Gallagher, The RING Magazine trainer of the year, takes time out from preparing Quigg for the fight to answer questions, while his fellow trainer Dave Coldwell joins the panel ahead of his own busy night with Gavin McDonnell’s chief support slot on the bill. Show co-promoter Eddie Hearn completes the line-up and the forum will begin at 7pm.
Smith will introduce the panel and picks out the key points from Thursday’s press conference, before questions submitted to @SkySportsBoxing via the hashtag #fansforum are read out and then the forum is opened to questions from the floor.
Entrance to the fans forum is free and on a first come, first served basis, with the doors opening at 6.30pm.
