Local businessman Alex Byland, who is working with Shawn with the event, added: “Events like these have a really good atmosphere and a unique one and there’s a buzz you feel through the crowd.

“If people are into the fighting anyway but watch it on TV, it’s certainly a big difference.”

Lincoln Fight Factory has had a number of successful fighters over the years and Shawn is keen to ensure the gym keeps on growing.

“Lincoln has got a long history, dating back to the 80s of having very, very good fighters, especially in kickboxing.

“I just want to keep it growing, keep the numbers going up. We’ve got about 500 members now and I’d like to hit 1,000 in two years time.”
