Founded by boxing promoter Darren Lamb in 2021, Boxstar Celebrity Boxing is set to ignite the UK’s live entertainment scene following a turbulent 18 months for the industry.
Darren says, “During Covid I felt there was a real need to bring something new and exciting to the UK nightlife entertainment scene. There was a huge surge in the success of celebrity and influencer events in America and I realised that there was a gap in the UK market for a high-end arena event, and what could be more entertaining than well-loved celebrities battling one another in front of a live crowd?”
