When former Welterweight champion Ross Minter retired from the sport back in 2009 off the back of a nine year professional career that saw him claim both the Southern Area and English welterweight titles and challenge for world honours against WBU champion Michael Jennings, he felt that although his exploits inside the prize ring had come to a slightly premature end through injury, there was still a burning desire inside himself to be involved in the sport that had been part of his life from a very early age.

“I’d be lying if I said we had not come up against some negativity from the likes of the BBBofC and a few others but once people have actually been to a Queensbury show they all come away saying the same thing that these are the best boxing shows they have ever attended and go away with a completely different perspective because they have seen it for themselves.” Minter went on.
“What we are doing is a massive positive for boxing and we are now starting to get the recognition for all f the hard work that has gone into making the league what it is.
