White Collar Boxing at the Fort

The biggest Banquet Event in the Channel Islands of 2014 took place in Queens Hall at Fort Regent on Saturday 5th July 2014.  Jersey White Collar Boxing ran by Boxin Business attracted 900 people to watch their friends, family members and colleagues fight under the dome.  The event had previously taken place at Hotel de France, this was the first year at Fort Regent and the biggest crowd ever!

Fort Regent's Events Officer, Tom Le Sueur, signed up to take part this year and completed over 8 weeks of hard training.  Tom trained alongside 19 other participants in exhausting fitness classes, savage sparring sessions and miles and miles of runs across sand dunes, upstairs and many steep hills.  The 20 participants, 16 men and 4 ladies, trained to compete in fights lasting 3 x 2 minute rounds refereed by ex- boxing champion, Steve Collins.

All participants took part to raise money for 2 very worthy charities; Le Tournoi and Teenage Cancer Trust.  Over £20,000 has been raised in total between the 2 charities and there is still some sponsorship money to collect. 

The atmosphere in the Queens Hall for Fight Night was electric and Fort Regent was an amazing venue for such a massive event.  Boxin Business have already penciled in a date for 2015 at Fort Regent and can't wait to start training the next batch of brave participants.
