Origins Media’s very own Martyn Jones nominated for the photographer of the year in the annual Muay Thai Award

Martyn Jones has long been a close friend of mine, a brother, a confidant and an all-round beardy buddy of mine, and for many years I have referred to him the best fight photographer in the UK, and that’s not something I take lightly. I also call him Breardy Bastard sometimes too

I first met Martyn a good few years ago now at boxing show in Tynemouth and I soon saw that what he did was so much more more than take photos of people punching each others faces in, Martyn likes to tell a story, not with words but in photographs. His natural talent for capturing not just the moment but the emotions behind the fighters he shoots.

Big Hearted Cage Fighter to help Family at Christmas – European MMA Champ in search of a deserving family this Christmas

Big Hearted Cage Fighter Darren ‘Powerhouse’ Towler is to dig deep this Christmas to help a local deserving family!

The UCMMA European Heavyweight Champion Darren Towler is looking for a deserving family who may be down on their luck or struggling this Christmas to provide the kind of Christmas that they would like for their Children after his offer on social media last week to give £1000 out of his own pocket.

Towler, nick named ‘Powerhouse’ when he steps into the Octogon has had title success a number of times in his MMA career including , Strike and Submit Heavyweight Title , Supremacy Heavyweight Title , Made for the Cage European Heavyweight Title , UCMMA /Cage Rage British Heavyweight Title and UWC European Title.

Darren commented on social media that he felt lucky and somewhat privileges to have everything that he needs this Christmas and realises that he is lucky not only to have his family around him but to be able to give them a good Christmas and he has given a lot of thought to many North East families that won’t be so lucky due to health issues, financial problems or family problems and he wants to do his bit for one family by donating one thousand pounds for their Christmas. MMA man Towler doesn’t want anything in return, just know that the chosen family will be able to enjoy a worry free festive period.

Many may well be surprised of this act of generosity from well know fighter, but not friend of Towlers and Combat Sports Media man Stu Armstrong, who said “This is not surprising one bit of Darren, yes he may well reign down carnage on his opponent in the cage but anyone that knows Darren the person,  rather than Darren the Fighter knows just how how kind and generous he is, and how much he does for North East charities. I think this is just typical of the big man with the big heart and he really will make someones Christmas Special”

If you know of a family that you think would benefit from this kind offer then please please click here to contact Darren and his team direct via his Facebook Fan page, or you can email myself, Stu Armstrong, at and I would be more than happy to pass the details to Darren in your behalf
