A visit from our newly-crowned World Champion

Lerrone Richards to be presented to the crowd before the game

28 January 2022

We are delighted to announce that Lerrone Richards will on Saturday return to AFC Wimbledon for the first time since being crowned World Champion.

The Dons supporter will be presented on the pitch to our fans before the Shrewsbury game, complete with the IBO World Super-Middleweight belt that he won in superb style last month.

Our Commercial Director Ivor Heller said: "Lerrone promised us that he would come and see us every time he wins a belt! This will carry on until he's the undisputed World Champion."

Lerrone previously trained just around the corner from Plough Lane at Earlsfield ABC and he has worn shorts for his fights with the Dons badge proudly on display!
