Essex-based security specialists, VIP Security Services, are sponsoring the rising light heavyweight to help him reach his full potential.

Me and my team work very hard at the famous Peacocks Gym. I am happy to have Darren and VIP Security Services on board, thanks to their support, I can carry on following my dreams”.
