Battle in the Bay Torquay


Sanigar Events announce they are bringing professional boxing back to Torquay with their event on Saturday April 20th at the Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay.

Local boys Adam Bannister, Nathan Halton and Shane Medlen, will make their Torquay debuts having had to travel throughout the UK in their previous professional contests. Pawel August of Taunton, 8 wins 0 loss tops the bill boxing in an International contest against Robert Halas of Serbia. Faheem Khan Exeter, Brad Pauls Newquay and Darren Townley, Plymouth make up this entertaining night of boxing.

Sanigar Events have been promoting and managing boxers since 1989 and have produced 3 World Champions in Glen Catley, Bristol 2000, Lee Selby, Barry and Lee Haskins Bristol 2015.

They are pleased to return professional boxing to Devon as in the past they promoted regular shows in Plymouth producing British & Commonwealth Champion Scot Dann.

This is their first show in Torquay having partnered up with local boxing trainer Paul Guy and main sponsor Scott Jeff of Timberventure.  Chris Sanigar said "It is only their infectious enthusiasm that has made this show possible. Therefore, I do hope the local boxing fans will come out and support this event".

The boys have been making the trek for regular sparring and training and are determined to put on a great show so these events can be 3 or 4 times per year.  We have given them some tough love with some hard sessions, but they loved it. We are keen to promote regular events as we believe there is a lot of talent in the area and we would like to revive the sell out crowds we had at the Plymouth Pavilion in those glory Scott Dann days.

The boys have all got good support and have been selling well, so we are expecting a good crowd. Ticket Prices are VIP Tables £60pp, £55pp or Ringside £50, £40.00 and Unreserved Balcony Standing £30.00. Box Office 0117 9496699 or
