Rockliffe Hall is backing Darlington boxer, Stuart Hall, to win his bantamweight title final eliminator against Mexican, Rodrigo Guerrero, at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Saturday night (16th April).
The award-winning hotel is sponsoring Hall, 36, who regularly trains in the resort’s state-of-the-art gym when he visits home, between his full time training in Birmingham.
Hall hopes to win this fight so he can secure a rematch with Lee Haskins to try and get his hands on the IBF belt once again.
Promoter, Eddie Hearn, has said Guerrero will be a “handful” for Stuart, but he knows “Stuart is desperate to land a fight with Lee and settle the score.”
Stuart will fight Guerrero before Josh Warrington defends his WBC International featherweight title against Hisashi Amagasa. The fights will be live on Sky Sports.
Stuart, who recently became a dad for the third time, says: “I’m a big fan of Rockliffe Hall and am thrilled they’ve become a sponsor - the facilities throughout the resort are second to none. When I’m visiting my family at the weekends I try and spend as much time as I can training in the fantastic gym and I particularly love the hydrotherapy pool - the water jets work wonders on any niggles I’ve developed!”
Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “We are proud to sponsor Stuart as he strives to regain the IBF title. We’ll be cheering him on on Saturday night!”
Rockliffe Hall, in Hurworth, near Darlington, is the only five red star resort in the North. It boasts 61 sumptuous guestrooms and suites, three superb restaurants, an award-winning spa and 18-hole championship golf course. Rockliffe recently invested £1 million in a new Spa Garden to enhance the spa experience and has plans for further investment to enhance its services in 2016.
