Visitors to Birmingham’s The Entertainer went toe-to-toe with young boxers from Pat Benson Boxing Academy in the fourth of Tomy’s in-store Battroborg events last weekend.
England Junior team boxer Connor Benson and up-and-coming pugilist Connor Goodchild kicked off the latest event, demonstrating their boxing prowess in a head-to-head match of Battroborg on Saturday, November 16th.
In a tournament to win a limited edition golden Battroborg, shoppers then took turns to face the two fifteen year olds.
A new Battroborg champion was crowned when 11 year old Mason Kirkbright stepped into the ring with Goodchild. Kirkbright beat the young boxer to take home the Birmingham title.
James Cokell, Tomy brand manager, said: "Battroborg is promising to be the ‘must have’ boys toy this Christmas – it’s a great mix of family fun and technology.
"We’re really excited to be working with The Entertainer to reach out to consumers by demonstrating the product in full battling action.
"The chance to battle against top boxers to win a limited edition golden Battroborg is proving to be a big hit with kids of all ages.”
