A CALL is going out for an Italian speaker needed to help at a forthcoming sports event.
Steve East has issued the appeal ahead of his Extreme Full-Contact Kickboxing event on Saturday, April 12.
The night will see South Shields kickboxing star Jamie Moore take on Italian Luca Panto for the chance to claim the World Kickboxing Association’s superheavyweight belt.
The Italian speaker is required to translate for Panto on the night.
In exchange for their help on the night, the volunteer is promised VIP treatment, with all expenses paid.
The kickboxing event will take place at Sunderland University’s CitySpace venue and will feature other fighters from South Tyneside besides Moore.
It is being organised by Mr East, manager of the Kuei-Ling Kickboxing club based at South Shields Fight Factory, in Frederick Street, and Sunderland coach Paul Grieves.
Tickets for the show are available from South Shields Fight Factory or by calling 07946 389945.
The first fight is scheduled to start at 6pm.
Anyone able to help Mr East can contact him on 07946 389945.
