Guys thanks for taking the time to read my blog, it was designed and pulled together by my dear friend Ben Holland. Ben as well as being a very close friend of mine is also one of the great people in life. He throws himself into his charity's and friend's needs with reckless abandon with little thought for the sacrifice he is making. He is one of those rare breed that never seek thanks and gets genuine enjoyment out of seeing others happy.
On top of this he is a massively talented individual with amazing skills in web design and other useful IT skills. The best thing I could say to you is allow him into your life if you are in need of a website or anything related to this, he is very competitive and goes the extra mile.
Thanks Ben and I know you will be embarrassed by this but, too bad it's my blog Love ya champ Smokes x

Welcome to the Official Website of Adam Hollioake


Adam Hollioake is a rarity in modern times in that he has been a professional sportsman in 3 different codes. Having captained the England Cricket Team he has since gone on to Box professionally as a Heavyweight and has recently made the step to Mixed Martial Artist at Light Heavyweight. In doing so he becomes the first & only International cricketer to fight professionally and only the second International Athlete to do so.


As a cricketer he became the most successful 1st Class captain in the history of the game lifting a total of 9 domestic trophies in his 7 years as captain of the Surrey County Cricket Club. In 1997 he was named Man of the Series in Englands 3-0 win over the great Australian side and in 1998 became the first England captain to lift an International trophy abroad in over a decade. He was named Wisden Cricketer of the year in 2003 an honor bestowed upon the 5 best cricketers in the world that year. In 2004 he retired from all cricket but played a final game for The Rest of the World vs Asia and took a hat-trick with the last 3 balls of his cricketing career.


As a Professional boxer and Mixed Martial Artist he is undefeated and still active in the fight game with an MMA bout scheduled for September 14th 2012 and is expected to box again before then.


Another fact not many people know about Adam Hollioake is that he is the creator of the television property "Australia's Greatest Athlete". In partnership with Octagon Australia he was responsible for getting all the athletes and designing the events that led to the show being aired for 3 years on the 9 and 7 Networks.


On top of this Adam is highly active in the charity world being the Founder and Patron of his brothers Charity ‘The Ben Hollioake Fund”. He is also a patron of The McGrath Foundation and The Gary Mason Foundation. On top of this he has founded and helps organize 2 Annual Charity Events called The Cricket Challenge and Battle of the Stars.
