Big congrats to Royal Empire Jewelry sponsored bareknuckle fighter Jimmy “The Gypsy Boy” McCrory. Another truly impressive bareknuckle victory Saturday night. Beating Richard Glashyer quick and in convincing fashion. This legend just came out of retirement and is back on track like the true warrior he is. Much respect to you Jimmy. May you continue to shine my brother. Most noteworthy, Jimmy was fighting for a cause. Fighting For Frankie or #FFF. While not just stepping back in the ring for himself, Royal Empire Jewelry sponsored McCrory is raising money and awareness for Frankie. A 2 year old in the fight of the little kids life, battling Cancer. We at Royal Empire Jewelry couldn’t be prouder to support and stand beside a man with such compassion, respect and honour.
Especially relevant is the way the Gypsy Boy fights. When he steps in the ring, you know he will leave everything he has out there. Furthermore he fights with heart. Courage. Finally with pure Irish tenacity. With over 200 fights under his belt, this legend has been in countless wars. He continues to fight and preform like the Champion he is. His bareknuckle fight trilogy against UK bareknuckle icon Dave “The Beast” Radford is what legends are made of. From the first bloody meeting between hay bales (watch here) to their final battle in front of a sold out crowd (watch here). Not to mention the Vice documentary called “Underground Bare Knuckle Boxing in the UK“. Which showcased McCrorys’ Trans-Atlantic Title fight against American fighter Jason Young (watch here). Seeing McCrory viciously knockout the American before holding the prestigious belt above his head victoriously.
Congratulations Gypsy Boy. We at Royal Empire Jewelry are proud to call you family.
