Shepway Boxer Will Appear at 02 Arena

Published on December 17th, 2015




Folkestone boxer Josh Kennedy, a Gold Ambassador for Shepway Sports Trust, has been selected to box on the ‘undercard’ of David Haye’s comeback fight on 16th January at the O2 arena in front of 16,000 people.

Josh turned professional earlier this year, and has won all four of his contests to date by knockout. This will be by far the largest crowd he has boxed in front of, and presents a great opportunity to increase exposure as he looks to secure a TV contract.


Josh has been a key figure in the early development of Shepway Sports Trust, an independent charity that was set up with the support of the Roger De Haan Charitable Trust in order to encourage wider participation in sport, greater collaboration between local clubs and schools and to help promote the very best in sporting achievement.
