BRITAIN’S only undefeated boxing world champion Joe Calzaghe will officially open a £2million leisure complex at Tydd St Giles Golf & Country Club on Thursday.

Calzaghe will be unveiling the new complex at Kirkgate near Wisbech at 12noon.

The Welsh boxer was voted 2007 BBC Sports Personality of the Year and retired in 2009 with a perfect professional record of 46 wins and no losses.
Adrian Hurst, managing director, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Joe will be helping us unveil our new build. We’re really excited to be re-branding as Tydd St Giles Golf & Country Club.
“He owns a property at one of our sister sites in Barbados and we are delighted he has taken time out of his busy schedule to help us unveil our new building.”
The leisure complex will feature a heated indoor pool with a coco jet machine, steam room, sauna and a fully air-conditioned fitness suite.
The building was constructed by Wisbech-based Bespoke Oak Supplies Ltd.
