Matchroom and StubHub surprise Key Workers during Lockdown

With the country more grateful than ever for the efforts of its frontline heroes, we partnered with StubHub UK to help inspirational key workers and deserving fans meet with some of the sport’s biggest names via video call.

From NHS workers, policemen and paramedics to hospice volunteers, carers and funeral directors, StubHub UK and Matchroom Boxing found eight of the most inspiring people from communities across the country were awarded the prize.

Suggested by friends and family for their selflessness and stories of personal sacrifice, especially during the difficult past few months, these nominees were able to speak to one of UK boxing’s most well-known performers, who made sure to thank them for their incredible hard work and dedication.
