Boxer and businessman Shane Green is urging local people to get behind him as he bids for the chance to pitch for investment from Sir Richard Branson.

The 23-year-old, who boxes for Bridlington ABC, runs the Gym Addict range of sports clothing.

He has entered the VOOM Awards, which gives up-and-coming companies the chance to win investment of £450,000 from Sir Richard.

“I am wanting to take this brand global,” said Green.

He has already received a video message of support from former world champion Roy Jones Jnr, but he needs local votes to get into the top 80 of an online vote.
