Buffer To Mentor Aspiring Announcers For Matchroom Contest
Sky Sports and Matchroom Boxing have announced a contest where they are looking for the next generation of ring announcers.
As reported by Sky Sports, the winner of the upcoming MC Academy will win a BBofC license, and booked to appear on Matchroom’s events in 2018.
To enter the contest you need to upload a video clip of themselves (maximum of 30 seconds long) introducing a fight to Twitter or Instagram using #MCacademy by Wednesday, February 28th.
Buffer will lead a judging panel, which also includes Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn and Head of Boxing at Sky Sports Adam Smith, as they select the best 10 entries, who will travel to Sky Sports’ HQ for a final audition and a backstage tour of the studios.
Three finalists will emerge from the audition day and Buffer will put them through their paces in an MC Masterclass before they face the fans at an upcoming public work-out.
“I have a very busy schedule this year and I can’t be everywhere, so we’re starting The MC Academy,” said Buffer. “Let’s find a new voice and a new face who can help me out.
“There will be no age restriction and, of course, it’s open to both men and women! Show me what you’ve got, and good luck.
Hearn added: “This is a great chance for an aspiring MC to learn from a legend and take center stage at our shows. We expect to see some amusing entries over the next few weeks, but also hope to unearth the next Michael Buffer!”
