Fight Night: STV step into the ring to bring Scottish boxing to your TV

Step into the ring with STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh for STV Fight Night on March 18

Commonwealth gold medalist Charlie Flynn and upcoming talent Joe Ham will both fight in the television programme which will broadcast live from Glasgow Hotel on March 18.

Charlie say’s “it’s a dream come true to see STV stepping up to the mark with live coverage of the shown.  It just takes everything to the next level, you spring out your bed in the morning, you train that bit harder, everyone coming to the show gets the extra vibe man”.

Paul Hughes, channel editor for STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh, said:

“In the words of Charlie Flynn himself, we are buzzing like a jar of wasps to be hosting the return of Scottish boxing on TV and we are delighted that local hero Charlie and upcoming talent Joe have agreed to take part in the event.

“It’s great that we are able to step into the ring to bring local sport to our audience and honour the legacy of the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

“We have welcomed Charlie to STV Glasgow several times already and we know he is a huge hit with our viewers, so I think they will be very excited to hear this great news.”

STV Fight Night will be broadcast after the watershed. More details of the programme will follow so keep your eyes peeled.
