Default Looking for UK boxing writers for British boxing tabloid

I am the editor of the Boxing Observer, a boxing tabloid which has been set-up for the last 6 months. I am looking for skilled writers to write fight previews, reviews and some general news. If you are keen and you can write in a distinguished manner, then I can give you a section to focus on, and mange and distribute vie social media. Big scope for development.

If you are keen, let me know. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

It is a website and there is no money involved. Never is unless you scribe for Yahoo and The Ring mate. Even then, it is little bro.

there are alot of people who wouldnt mind doing this, but tbh you should try to offer some sort of incentive.

thing is mate, the guy is right there isint much money in boxing writing mate .Very few sites will pay you and if your covering fights then you will get the press pass but you have to cover the travel costs and hotel (if required) out of your own pocket .

Not true. I make 30 per cent of my income from boxing websites and 100 per cent from journalism.

Most people never make anything because a) they want to be the big boss and set up their own tinpot site that nobody has heard of b) they aren't prepared to work hard enough c) they don't know how to network with the right people to get the opportunities.

I appreciate anyone who does something to help the sport as a whole but I'll be honest, you aren't exactly selling this to people.

If there's no payment involved then maybe you should be drawing people in by mentioning which promoters you have accreditation with, which fighters you can give the people who come on board access to etc.
