BOXING NEWS was a winner at the highly prestigious British Sports Journalism Awards in London on Monday. The ‘100 Greatest British Boxers’ supplement won the prize for best Special Sports Edition 2017.

Boxing News came through from a strong shortlist, including entries from national newspapers the Daily Mirror, the Independent, the Sun and the Telegraph as well as Rugby World magazine. The judges at the Sports Journalists’ Association said, “The winning entry however was one all about research, knowledge and soul-searching [in] what the judges called the ‘ultimate independent assessment.’”

Receiving the award, in his acceptance speech editor Matt Christie paid tribute to the memory of Scott Westgarth, who died after winning his contest on Saturday.
