After dedicating an astonishing 37 years of his life to the sport of boxing, Glyn Rhodes has been awarded an MBE in the New Years Honours list by HRH Elizabeth II in recognition of his services to boxing and young people and all that he has achieved during this time. Since his retirement as a fighter in 1993, Glyn 'Showboat' Rhodes swiftly went on to earn his training, managing and promoters licenses and has since then brought countless aspiring young boxers through the ranks at his gym based in Hillsborough, Sheffield. Since the announcement of this accolade, Glyn has conducted interviews with BBC Breakfast and Sky Sports that can be seen at our video page. video page (not available currently on the mobile site).

“It is a tremendous honour and legitimises everything I’ve tried to do,”

After being approached about a more family orientated boxing venue, Glyn Rhodes and his Sheffield Boxing Centre gym had a new vision for iceSheffield. Having met and discussed the idea, Glyn and the team have successfully agreed on a six-fight deal with the hope of turning iceSheffield into a venue as iconic as York Hall. Since the original agreement there have been two hugely successful events held on November 9th and December 7th with the next date to be announced in February 2013.

“We want to make iceSheffield our home for our shows and put them on, on a regular basis and if we can put successful shows on there, then they will have people banging their door down to put shows on.”

Sheffield Boxing Centre Boxing Against Bullying

Boxing Against Bullying

We've proudly joined forces with The Star in launching a campaign to help the victims of bullying, supported by the NPSCC and former Sports Minister Richard Caborn MP. As a part of this initiative we've offered to give advice and assistance to anyone feeling vulnerable and will happily teach boxing to all those who believe learning the ropes would help. There's been huge recognition for this cause from a range of celebrities involved in the sport and alongside The Star we can only reach out further to those in need.

“There is absolutely no hiding place in boxing, it builds characters. It takes young people from all parts of society and helps elevate them and their expectations.”

Ex Sports Minister Richard Caborn
