Staff at Filton Specsavers were treated to a visit from current IBF bantamweight world champion boxer, Lee Haskins.

Bristol born and bred

Lee popped in to the store for a sight test and stopped to chat to staff as well as take photos. Bristol born and bred, Lee still uses a local gym and is very proud of his Bristolian heritage.

Optometrist Sara Feily-Shakib carried out the test.

‘Lee was very friendly and took the time to chat to everyone and pose for pictures. It was great to have him in store.

Professional boxing licence

'He needed a sight test for a medical form to ensure his professional boxing licence is valid and we were only too happy to help.’

Lee’s next fight will be the defence of his IBF bantamweight title against Ryan Burnett in Belfast on Saturday 10 June.
