Eighteen sweaty fighters are set to battle it out in the ring in what has unofficially been called the biggest boxing event of the century.

Event organisers, Angus Richardson, Rory Reames, Benji Marchand, Ollie Weighill, and Dougie Critchley-Johnson, told The Tab: “Aggression sessions is a student run charity boxing event born out of five second years’ passion for boxing, and inspired by the Froch-Groves titanic clash at Wembley last May.

“We are passionate about raising money for Help for Heroes and excited for what will be a truly memorable event and a seminal moment is the history of Durham’s commitment to sport and charity.

“We aim to promote the sport of boxing, raise money for a worthwhile cause and initiate an enduring legacy of Aggression Sessions in Durham.”
