To help my team achieve as much as possible


I will be boxing at an Ultimate White Collar Boxing event at Chester Racecourse on December 5th 2021 and I am raising money for Cancer Research UK.

A team of coaches will help transform us over an 8 week period starting on 11th October 2021 so we are ready to get in the ring! This black tie produced event will be held in front of hundreds of people.

I will be training over 8 weeks before the fight and I will be getting extremely fit in the process culminating in the end event in front of friends and family all to raise money for such a great cause…

Why I am doing this?
On Christmas Day 2019 I sadly lost my nana to this terrible disease, she went through so much with all the treatment she had to go though so the least that I can do is train for 8 weeks and get in the ring. That’s nothing compared to what people with cancer have to go through. I have always wanted to do something like this that puts me out of my comfort zone and is also challenging physically and mentally… We have all had at some point family and friends who have been directly impacted by Cancer and have experienced the effects that it has, so I want to do my part in raising as much as possible for Cancer Research UK


If you would like to come and show your support at the black tie event individual tickets are available online from Friday 8th October, Standard tickets are £25 and there are also VIP Tables also available which seat 10 guests which includes early access and table service…

The night will not stop after the fight, I’m hoping to get a few people together for drinks and to celebrate the WIN that I’m hoping for 😂😂. It would be great to get as many people attending as possible as the atmosphere will be amazing!!


Any donation will be hugely appreciated no matter the amount, Every little bit helps towards getting rid of this disease once and to all…

Thanks so much for your support
