Acklam Car Centre’s Role in the Community
At Acklam Car Centre, we take our position in the local North-East English community seriously. As well as expanding to become one of the largest providers of quality second hand cars to drivers in the North-East, we often regularly contribute to its vibrant culture through monetary and philanthropic gestures.
The North-East is known for its diverse sporting culture and that is why Acklam Car Centre is proud to sponsor Simon Vallily, a highly skilled boxing industry professional who used his talent and sheer determination to rise to the rank of Commonwealth Champion.
Commonwealth Boxing Champion Returns to the Ring
Vallily takes the faith that his sponsors (such as Acklam Car Centre and webuyanyhousee.com) have in him seriously, and promised to repay that faith last week, days before the 2010 Commonwealth gold medallist re-entered the ring for the Leeds First Direct Arena Fight
His first fight since parting ways with promoter Frank Warren, it saw 28 year old Middlesbrough-based Simon compete against former opponent Moses Matovu in a six round contest that proved a must see right from the off.
Simon Vallily Thanks Sponsors for Their Continued Support
Before the fight took place, Simon spoke out on his wish to stick by the sponsors who have stuck by him in his rise to the top of the boxing world. Simon said: “My supporters and sponsors, Chris Andrews at Acklam Car Centre and webuyanyhouse.com, have stuck by me even when things weren’t going to plan. It’s much appreciated and I want to pay them back with a good performance against Matovu. He is strong and is always there, but we’ve been working on some new things and I’m looking forward to showing them.”
Acklam Car Centre Boss Chris Andrews responded by saying that “Simon is a brilliant boxer with a great future ahead of him and we’re very proud to be able to play a part in his continuing success,” and that “we’re all looking forward to seeing him back in action tomorrow.” The ensuing fight proved to be epic, highlighting, once again, what a master Vallily is in the ring.
