Frank Warren, Manager and Boxing promoter, says: DEBRA Fight Night is an exceptional evening in aid of a great charity. I’ve hosted the annual DEBRA Fight Night for the past 14 years to support the charity’s fundraising. I got involved with DEBRA after meeting a wonderful young man called Jonny Kennedy, who had EB. I wanted to commemorate his life and raise funds to help suffers of this terrible skin condition. We are putting on a high adrenaline night of first-class military boxing which will feature exciting boxing bouts showcasing the skills and experience of our amazing Armed Forces boxers. I am asking the public to come out and help us raise funds for DEBRA and enjoy a great night of boxing.”

Simon Weston, Falkland War hero and British Army Veteran, says: “I am looking forward to attending DEBRA Fight Night, speaking to the guests, and seeing our Armed Forces boxers in action. Military boxing is entertaining, and our Armed Forces boxers are skilled and train hard. Our Army, Navy and Airforce boxers will go head to head for a great cause. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a terrible skin condition. I understand something of the pain and suffering that people with EB endure every day. After I suffered 46% burns on my body when I was injured during the Falkland War in 1982 I had to overcome my injuries and undergo over 70 operations. Come and join us on Fight Night and help us support DEBRA and EB sufferers.”
