On Sunday WBO world light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly took his Welsh Wizards to the annual Indee Rose Trust football tournament and it raised £12,000 for children suffering from brain and spinal tumors.

The Wizard’s were unable to take the title at the Indee Rose Trust’s football tournament hosted in Canvey Island, Essex at the home of Concord FC. Underdog’s The Irish Settlers, led by former amateur star turned pro boxing coach Alio Wilton, defeated Clev’s team, Gallaghers Gym, Ringtone Gym and TRAD TKO Clapton Rangers en-route to the tournament win. The annual event, organised by TRAD TKO Boxing Gym’s coach Johnny Eames, is in aid of the Indee Rose Trust which was founded by the family of Indee Rose, a three-year-old child who passed away with a brain tumour. The charity provides Treasure Box’s filled with toys for the children and holiday accommodation for the families affected.

The event has become a big fixture on the boxing community calendar and it’s a mark of the sports spirit that so many British and Irish stars turned out in attendance, including; Paul Smith, Liam Smith, Callum Smith, Anthony Crolla, Scotty Cardle, Callum Johnson, Billy Joe Saunders, Joe Gallagher, Andy Lee, Bradley Skeete and Sam Webb.
