Mr A Carrying the Flame in 2012

We are delighted and very proud to announce that All Stars legendary founder, coach and mentor, Mr Akay, will be carrying the Olympic Torch through London in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic games.

Mr Akay has been actively involved in shaping the lives of so many youngsters who have walked through All Stars door over the past 40 years or so and all of his hard work has been recognised by the Olympic committee who have confirmed him as a Torch Bearer on Thursday July 26th 2012.

Mr A has a long standing connection with the Olympics through the sport of boxing. His son Tee Jay, who is sadly no longer with us, boxed the great Evander Holyfield at the 1984 Olympics. Tee Jay then went on to be crowned British Champion and became a major success in boxing under the guidance of Mr A.
