Sale-based logistics equipment provider, Palletower, has agreed a deal to sponsor one of the UK’s most promising super middleweight boxers.
Jake Haigh, from Macclesfield, Cheshire, is trained by former light welterweight and welterweight world champion, Ricky Hatton, and is seen by many as one of the most exciting prospects in his division.
The 24-year-old, who has a 1st class honours degree in sports rehabilitation, has enjoyed a promising start to his professional career, contesting and winning all his 11 bouts, with his latest victory coming in early October.
Matthew Palmer, managing director of Palletower, said: “I’ve known Jake since he was 15-years-old and have always been impressed by his attitude and dedication to his sport.
“He has an extremely exciting future ahead of him and we’re delighted to be able to support him on his journey through the professional ranks. As a business we firmly believe in helping local sportsmen and women with their development and I look forward to seeing how Jake’s career develops.”
Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Haigh said: “Being a professional athlete is obviously a dream come true, but it isn’t possible without the support and backing of companies such as Palletower. This sponsorship deal will help me focus on my training and to further my career.
“I’m extremely grateful to Matthew and the team, as they have shown great faith in me, and I look forward to working with them.”
