British boiler manufacturer Baxi will feature in the boxing ring after agreeing a sponsorship deal with professional light heavyweight boxer Lyndon ‘King’ Arthur.
They will have their logo displayed on Lyndon’s shorts, vests and t-shirts as well as working with him for promotional purposes.
Manchester-based Lyndon, 26, was signed by legendary boxing promoter Frank Warren at the start of the year and has already racked up ten fights and ten wins, including nine knockouts.
His most recent fight, won by technical knockout, was against Norbert Szekeres on 5th May.
He will next compete at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, 9th June, against 40-year-old Ghanaian Charles Adamu as part of the undercard for Tyson Fury’s comeback fight.
Lyndon said: “It’s an exciting time for British boxing right now and I’d like to thank Baxi for supporting new talent.”
Dave Cook, sales director at Baxi, said: “As the manufacturer of the lightest boiler on the market it made sense for us to support emerging talent in the light heavyweight category.
“We also wanted to sponsor a fighter who was local to our headquarters in Preston.
“Lyndon has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in recent months and we look forward to working with him in his breakout year.”
