With anticipation sky-rocketing ahead of this week’s action inside the ropes at Ultimate Boxxer IV, outside the ring the brand continues to gather momentum as it announces five new commercial partners who are backing the fast-growing venture.
Gambling giants MansionBet have been joined by Phenom Boxing, Lucozade Sport, The Presidents Club, Blu and Catax as official sponsors for the Ultimate Boxxer, and will all have visibility when the bell rings at the latest tournament on Friday, July 19 in front of a sold-out crowd at the Altrincham Ice Arena. The entire duration of fight night will also be shown live on BT Sport, with ambassadors Paulie Malignaggi, Anthony Crolla and Steve Bunce calling the shots.
MansionBet have established themselves as one of the leading brands in the sports betting world, offering highly-competitive odds to punters across a plethora of sports, including boxing. They make Mikael Lawal the favourite for Friday night’s Ultimate Boxxer IV tournament.

We will continue to build our brand and bring the best fighters in the different weight divisions to our events in order to give boxing purists and casual fans a truly immersive fight night experience,’ said UB founder Ben Shalom.
