Jason said: “It’s been a great year for my family where I won the British Title, defended it successfully, won Fight of the Year and fought in America for a world title.

But without the help of the people around me and the support of all my family, friends and supporters, I couldn’t have done it, so we want to give something back.”

Jason used a skip from his recently set-up skip-hire business to deliver the presents followed by a Del Boy Robin Reliant and a three-wheel truck. Jason will return to boxing training after Christmas.
