Whether you’ve always harboured a desire to channel your inner Ali and go a few rounds in the ring, you want a quick, sharp shock to get yourself in best ever shape or you’re a dedicated fundraiser for Cancer Research UK, Ultra White Collar Boxing might well be the event for you!
This sport puts plucky participants through their paces, whipping them into fitness over eight gruelling weeks by professional boxing coaches before pitting the survivors (!) against each other in an evenly-matched bout in front of their proud family and friends. All competitors are fairly matched based on weight, fitness, ability and age against someone from the same group and each person will have raised money for Cancer Research UK for the opportunity to use – and showcase – their new sport.
This year’s rookies are due to wage white collar war in the ring at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC). Remember they were complete beginners at the start of the training and £300 worth of free boxing tuition in Phoenix MMA boxing gym later they’re ready to put their money where their mouth (guard) is and their new skills on show.
