Top nutritionist Kerry Kayes paid a visit to Jennings Gym to talk all things fitness with a group of budding boxers.

Kayes is a nutritionist to a number of high-profile sportsmen and women.

Ricky Hatton, professional bodybuilder Dorian Yates and Sir Bradley Wiggins are among the host of names that he has worked with.

On his visit to Chorley on Saturday, Blackpool professional boxer and Jennings Gym star Matty Askin were also in attendance.

Askin is preparing for one of the biggest fights of his career as he looks set to defend his English cruiserweight title against Menay Edwards.

The fight will take place at Blackpool’s Winter Garden’s on Saturday, March 29.

Gym co-owner Dave Jennings was delighted with the turnout to meet Kerry.

He said: “To be honest, the day with Kerry couldn’t have gone any better – I think we had about 65 people down from all from different sporting backgrounds.

“Kerry is a world-class nutritionist and as he knows our Michael well , we thought we had to get him down.”

Preparation for Askin’s fight is going well and Dave is more than confident he can defend the title.

He added: “Training has been great. We have had Tony Bellew sparring with Matty, it’s all about concentrating on the next fight, winning and moving on to the next one.”
