Saying “NO” to knives was the message and reason for a very special recent evening in Bournemouth. The Evening which boasted an impressive line up guest speakers, Big Joe Egan, former Heavyweight boxing champion and Mike Tyson’s former sparring partner, Scott Welch, former British and Commonwealth Heavyweight boxing champion and WBC Cares UK Chairman, professional boxer Chris Billam Smith and WBC Cares ambassador Marc Smith were all together for one night to take questions from a full house of captivated audience.

Also in attendance a number of local amateur boxers, the very inspiring athlete Kate Farley, a remarkable, very charming female boxer who has cerebral palsy, despite this absolutely does not let it get in her way, training very hard to learn the art of boxing.also Brett White of Poole ABC who was a key part to making the event possible with all his support and time he gave up for event planning.

The evening was a fantastic uplifting experience, lots of laughs as Joe Egan delivered some of his funny one liners and shared some great stories. There were some very emotional moments also as Joe talked of his very dear friend, recently a fatal victim of a brutal knife attack, each guest spoke of how they had been effected by the increasing problem on our streets of knives.

Marc Smith talked about the problems faced more locally in Bournemouth area and experiences he has encountered throughout his 25 years in the security industry, an industry that means being confronted with such situations far more than most in society,

It was a great privilege having Scott Welch along, the amazing work he does by way of the WBC Cares UK is remarkable, so it was great to have his input on the evening and extra special for boxing fans who were not expecting Scott to be in attendance.

The evening was all made possible thanks to the hospitality of Roxy’s Bistro Bar, who were very kind to hold the evening in their fine restaurant area.

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and the guests speakers who gave up their time to talk about such an important cause, a lot of really constructive ideas were discussed on how to combat knife crime, naturally a very emotive subject and a battle that not be won any time soon, but we can make a difference, it will take time and it wont be easy but it can be done and lives can and must be saved.

A great night spent with an awesome audience.

A fantastic evening speaking to an awesome audience at Roxy’s Bistro bar in Bournemouth. I was very grateful to be invited along to talk about my career, life experiences so far and there have been some pretty interesting ones. It was also great to receive so much interest in the projects I am currently involved in, as well as the fantastic charities I am supporting.

It was great to take questions from everyone that come along, it was such a great night that after two hours solid, I could of talked for another two hours.

A huge thank you to the Roxy’s management, Ben, the MC and man with the questions, Joey, our photographer for the night and of course a full house that attended, it truly was a great night and one that I will be doing all over again as there is still so much more to tell you all.

Simply a great night!

A conversation with Marc Smith at Roxys, Thursday 25th October.

I am excited to have been invited by Roxy's Bistro Baron Thursday 25th of October to talk a little bit about myself, my 25 years in the security industry, the good and the bad experiences, also talk about some of the very exciting people I have and continue to work with, familiar faces you may indeed know and how the collaborations come about, there have been too many to list here.

I’ve had and continue to live a life that I don’t take for granted, I’ve met, worked with, worked for and enjoyed great times with very many remarkable people, some of which have become good friends.

I’m very grateful and pretty humbled to have even been asked and invited along so please come along, it’s free entry but space is limited, we call it intimate.

I want to take the opportunity to support the WBC Cares UK whom do amazing acts of kindness for children or people that need the help all around the world, we are this year looking at an initiative to help the homeless in Bournemouth, so hopefully on the night donations or ideas can be put forward.

Please come along on Thursday 25th October, I’m looking forward very much to the evening 🤗

WBC Boxing Academy off to a great start.

What a fantastic night at Poole WBC Boxing Academy as we welcome some brand new faces and meet some new friends.

On just session three of our academy we had a really good attendance, looking to learn to box.

Everyone that attended come along with an open mind, a mind to listen, understand and learn and that they did. What we do is drill the basics and practise safer boxing, we are not here to seek and destroy, we are here to enjoy.

If last night is anything to go by we are going to have a amazing academy that is going to grow and grow into something very special.

What a great evening for Poole WBC Boxing Academy.

Well done everyone that has already taken that first step and is with us.
