This weekend past saw former World Kickboxing Champion Sunny Hira team up with entrepreneur and property tycoon, Bobby Singh from Love Your Postcode to raise over £65,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
As part of Season 9 of White Collar Boxing Championships, the FightMania charity event was held at The Regency Suite in Birmingham, with over 1,000 distinguished guests in attendance, including regional politicians, representatives from the corporate world, industry stalwarts and even award winning Bhangra singing sensation JK who performed as part of a contenders fight ring entrance.
Having launched in 2014 by Sunny Hira, White Collar Boxing Championships aims to raise awareness and money for good causes in the community whilst allowing regular people to challenge and better themselves through physical fitness and activity.
Explaining the concept behind it, Sunny said, “This boxing event gives a beginner – an average Joe, 8 weeks free boxing training. The participants whom we refer to as contenders will then compete in a boxing match with another contender based on comparable boxing ability, weight and age. The contenders are from all walks of life and challenge themselves for their own reasons.”
The event was headlined sponsored by award winning estate agents Love Your Postcode. As the brains, and quite literally the face behind the brand, Bobby Singh helped pushed the FightMania event and cause onto an even larger and far reaching platform with the help of his marketing expertise and digital screens placed across the region.
Bobby Singh said, “Our ethos at Love Your Postcode is about providing a premium service and performance at the highest level whilst remaining committed to the community we serve in. I am really grateful for the opportunity to be able to take this great cause to an even bigger audience through our marketing expertise which means we were able to raise even more awareness and funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.”
