AN UP-and-coming boxer helped raised hundreds of pounds for Help for Heroes with a world record breaking attempt.

Danny Lewis Price, aged 22, of Highfield Park, went head-to-head with different opponents, ranging from family members to friends, for 112 rounds of continuous boxing at the Ffrith Arena in Prestatyn on November 18.

“I have broken the world record,” said Danny.

“The current record was 111 rounds. I couldn’t get an adjudicator from the Guinness World Records to come, but it is still an un-official world record.”

Danny, who has boxed since the age of seven, arranged this event to raise money for friends serving in the forces and for his nan, who once was an RAF member.

“I would like to thank everyone who came to support me,” he said.

“I have raised £230 and there is still more to come in.”

Danny, who is originally from Wallasey and moved to North Wales to live with his girlfriend, said he lost three stone while training for this event, going from a cruiserweight to a super middleweight.

He is now preparing for his next semi-profesional fight, which is scheduled to take place in the new year.

Danny has recently also had the opportunity to train with Ricky Hatton and Bob Shannon.

“It was a real eye-opener to train at a world class level - it has just made me more hungry,” he said.
