Boxer Adam thinks Mercury sponsorship is a knockout!

15th April 2014

Sheffield professional boxing champion Adam Etches has just signed a sponsorship deal with Mercury Taxis which he hopes will see him rise even further through the world boxing rankings.

Twenty-three year old Adam who lives in Birley, Sheffield is now unbeaten in 15 professional bouts and is the current Middleweight and Super Middleweight IBF World Youth title holder. Later this month Adam, known as 'The Bomber', will have the opportunity to win his third professional title when he fights for the WBC Youth Middleweight title at Ponds Forge in Sheffield. Adam explained, -I was really pleased to get sponsorship from Mercury Taxis. With three top sponsors, I can concentrate solely on my boxing now, giving me the best chance of becoming a world champion. I gave up work on the day I turned professional and it's the best thing I ever did. I grew up attending Henry Fanshawe School in Dronfield with members of the Eales family who own Mercury, so it's brilliant to know they are backing me all the way. Adam will face a tough challenge in Mexican, Felipe De la Paz Teniente nicknamed 'Cubano', on 26 April. Tickets for general admission are priced from £35, call 07747 474701. Mercury Taxis are on 0114 266 2662 www.mercurytaxis.com
