Bald from the eyebrows down: Meet this year’s Gentlemen’s Fight Night fighters
Jab left, jab right, we’re in for a good night
The most anticipated event of the year is upon us, and with only three days to go we had a little chat with the fighters to see how they’re feeling before the fight. The chat is a bit shit so we’re hoping they’re saving the best of it for the weigh-in tonight.
We hope you’ve got your outfits ready by now, the event always brings out the best in Brookes students, we scrub up well. If you’re lucky you might even make it into our best dressed.
