Former Marshalls Park Academy student Johnny Fisher paid a special visit to his old school with gifts and free tickets for his next fight. 

The 21-year-old heavyweight known as "The Romford Bull" gave the school a pair of framed shorts, which will be put on the wall.

Fisher also handed one lucky pupil a t-shirt and some free tickets for his fight on Saturday (October 30) when he heads into his fourth professional bout. 

He is on the undercard of the heavyweight rematch between Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora at the AO Arena in Manchester.

Fisher has stopped all three of his opponents to date since turning professional.
