The 'Ruff' Diamonds

If you live in Manchester and want to get into the boxing game, we've got all the details you need.

The area has produced prosperous punchers over the years including two-weight world champion Ricky Hatton and ex-European light-middleweight titlist Jamie Moore.

Moore, who engaged in a titanic tussle with Matthew Macklin in 2006, visited a couple of boxing projects in his native North West on this week's Ringside - as shown in the video above - to prove that the sport in the region is still booming.

And if you're interested in lacing up the gloves, get in touch with the following figures:
