On a beautiful summer’s day last Saturday, Hellraiser went down to Chatham, in Kent, to the opening of the new Kent Gloves boxing club. Run by Charlie Rumbol, there was a big turnout and plenty of current, former and future champions to chat to, and a fully equipped and pristine gym to marvel at with the crowds that had shown to share in the celebration of the gym’s official unveiling.
Hellraiser interviewed a variety of boxers, including current Southern Area middleweight champion Grant Dennis. Mickey Helliet would be keen Dennis to see in a four way fight off with Hellraiser man Elliot Matthews, and Lee Markham and Joe Mullender who had another war last week for the English title. He talks about that idea in this week’s Vlog which is coming later this week.
Also interviewed were ex WBU bantamweight champion Johnny Armour, unbeaten super middleweight newcomer Charlie “Animal” Shane who is scheduled to appear on the Hellraiser show at York Hall on July 15th, World Police and Fire games gold medalist Bella Clayton and youngster Luke Cullen, who Rumbol tips as one to watch. These will all go up on the Hellraiser Youtube channel over the coming days, so don’t forget to subscribe.
Rumbol is clearly a popular man, and the gym is a lovely and intelligent use of the space; even building another floor in to put the rings on. The equipment is all new and looks top quality, though Rumbol did admit, “I won’t be going on holiday for a few years!” Moreover Kent Gloves had a strong sense of community to it, and their mantra with the youngsters was very sensible, wanting to teach them life skills, as well as boxing ones. All at Hellraiser wish everyone at Kent Gloves the very best of luck.
