Shoppers and boxing enthusiasts were treated to live workout sessions with local Luton Boxer Kay Prosper at The Mall on Saturday 2nd March.
Ahead of Kay’s fight to become the English Super Lightweight Champion, the Luton boxer headed to The Mall to hold public workout sessions.
The event took place in Central Square, with Kay taking centre stage in The Mall’s very own boxing ring. Kay displayed his training techniques and showcased what it takes to become a professional boxer.
The Mall’s shoppers were thrilled to have the chance to watch Kay up close whilst visiting some of their favourite stores.
Kay also took time out to answer some of the crowd’s questions and provided further insight into his training programme and how he juggles day to day life.
Kay also welcomed students from his boxing club Hockwell Ring ABC, who also ran live demonstrations at The Mall.
On Saturday 16th March, Kay will be fighting for the English Super Lightweight Championship at York Hall, Bethnal Green where he aims to build on Luton’s rich boxing heritage.
