Lifelong dream come true! To have your hand raised as the victor in the middle of the ring surrounded by your friends and family and a huge crowd of spectators is a feeling second to none. Always fancied myself as a bit of a boxer, don't have the time for an amateur career and left it far too late to go pro (lol) this is the perfect setup for someone to get involved in the sport.
The training is hard work which is just what you need but the lads ease you into it. As long as your willing to put the effort in and drop a few bad habits the 8 weeks is ample time to get in shape for the 2 minute rounds. The trainers keep a watchful eye on the sparring to make sure no one gets too carried away and are careful about who your matched up with.
Fight night itself is well organised and alot of fun, your own choice of walk in music is a good touch and draws quite a crowd.
Would recommend anyone to have a go. (If you think your hard enough) - Mark Hayes
This is a great opportunity to have a break from the normal 9-5 and do ur bit for charity.
8 weeks of free training is hard work but in the end you can see and feel the difference, all the lads have lost wight and are looking fitter then ever before. The bond and respect you have with the other lads is amazing. There's something about training together and hitting each other that brings u closer. I would recommend it to anyone big or small. Just do it what's the worst that could happen? Kyle Pickford
Well having made the most outrageous decision to take part in this event I'm so glad I was part of an epic night. People who know me know what I have to deal with 24/7 with having cerebral palsy, so to actually take part and compete then go on and win my fight by points but hey still won! know that my achievement started 8wks ago stepping foot in the gym. I want to thank the guys at training Liam Colin and Craig and to all the competitors competing last night good show guys and well done. I so recommend it to anybody thinking of giving it a go. - Graeme Wikberg
Fought on the last 2 shows unfortunately losing my last one on Saturday but absolutely loved every minute of the experience, run really well and is only gonna get better and better couldn't recommend this enough to everyone, might even sign up for a 3rd time can't retire on a loss right!? - Stephen Molloy
Had an amazing time during the 8 weeks training where it motivated me to stop smoking and get a lot fitter, also meeting a good group of lads in the process. Then theres fight night i cant even explain that it was an amazing night. Will deffo be up for that again and i recommended a few mates to sign up ☺ - Mikey Barwick
Best experience ever! I did the Preston one last night and won! 8 weeks of intense training which will no doubt put you in great shape and ready for the event. Great gym to train at and very friendly people! Made loads of new friends! Would definitely recommend! - Asif Rusty Patel
I could not recommend this to people enough. Having first signed up in November to fight in January I have never looked back. The training and advice given by the coaches, the facilities are all first class. Then there is fight night, wow, what an experience. The nerves, excitement, atmosphere are unrivalled. Never known anything like it and can't imagine doing anything that could compare to it again. Looking forward to watching all future events, carrying on the training and stepping back in the ring one day. - Daz Bottomley
