We are thrilled to welcome our valued clients to a brand-new venue for our Cornish events, the wonderful, intimate and atmospheric Great Hall at Truro’s leading hotel, Alverton Hotel.
To get us off to a flying start we have our biggest name speaker yet, the former unified Cruiserweight world champion and WBA Heavyweight champion, David ‘The Hayemaker’ Haye. Guests will enjoy an evening of boxing chat as David delves into stories from his rich career with our regular host, Sky Sports presenter, Adam Leventhal.
With a drinks reception and photo opportunity with David included, a fantastic three course dinner prepared by the award-winning Alverton team, and the opportunity to hear from a British sporting legend, this is an evening not to be missed!
David Haye: Known as ‘The Hayemaker’, David dominated the Cruiserweight division, unifying titles wins over Jean-Marc Mormeck and Enzo Maccarinelli. At Heavyweight, he quickly established himself as a star of the division, winning the WBA belt by defeating giant Russian Nikolay Valuev. Victories over John Ruiz and Audley Harrison set up a unification bout against Wladimir Klitchsko, with the Ukranian proving victorious on points. Victory over Dereck Chisora followed, before David hung up his gloves for over three years. David couldn’t resist the lure of the ring, and following quickfire wins over Mark De Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj, his bout with Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew was one of the biggest ever all-British fights, resulting in an incredibly brave 11th round defeat, despite rupturing his right Achilles tendon. A rematch was inevitable, and in May 2018 David fought Bellew again, losing in the 5th Round, and prompting retirement for the battle-weary 37 year old. David will be remembered as one of Britain’s best boxers of recent decades finishing his career with a superb record of 28 wins from 32 fights, with an incredible 26 victories by way of knockout. We are thrilled to welcome The Hayemaker to Truro as our star guest!
Adam Leventhal: Our host for the evening is Sky Sports’ very own Adam Leventhal, who is a regular presenter on Sky Sports News coverage of all the big events, and a regular host of our events. Starting at Sky as a reporter in 2003, Adam’s professionalism and obvious love of sport saw him become a presenter in 2010, and he is now one of the most recognisable faces at the broadcasting giant. A keen boxing fan, Adam’s knowledge of the sport will ensure that our guests are in for a great evening’s entertainment. We are delighted to once again have Adam hosting our big event in Cornwall!
The Great Hall: The Alverton Hotel: The Alverton is a beautiful and fascinating Grade II* listed building replete with a rich history and character. The Great Hall is one of the many stunning features from the once Cornish convent that makes this classy four-star hotel so unique. With high vaulted ceilings, the space is in the style of a chapel, with velvet drapes and plush upholstery. With a maximum capacity of just 140 lending the event a real sense of exclusivity, you and your guests will be treated to high class catering and service for which The Alverton is rightly renowned.
