Hello fellow boxing enthusiast!
Ever wondered what it’d be like to face an opponent in the ring for 3 rounds? Here’s a great opportunity to support a good cause and test your grit!
We are currently recruiting volunteers from all industries and ‘walks of life’ to participate in this fun and exciting fund raiser. No experience required, in fact, that’s the point! This is designed for charity AND fun…volunteer your time and sweat, and we’ll have you ready for the challenge by fight night!
We are looking for friendly rivalries – Construction versus Real Estate? Police Officer versus Firefighter? Finance versus Sales? Friend versus Friend? Pairings will be based on age, weight, and previous experience/ability.
Once you’re signed on, we’ll start a GoFundMe page for each fighter, to raise training/participation fees. All proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales will go towards supporting our amateur boxing programs, ie transportation for boxers and coaches to state and national competitions, assisting with gym and USA Boxing membership fees (required for sparring and competition), purchasing necessary equipment, subsidizing Community Center youth boxing programs, and providing competition training and conditioning sessions for our competitive boxers, as well as limited educational scholarships.
Interested? Of course you are, who wouldn’t be?? Fill out the contact form below: [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
Kick Off/ registration – Wed, May 18th , 7:00pm at Ford’s Gym – 2114 Winnebago St, Madison, WI (608)249-4227
We’ll go over specifics and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and meet your fellow fighters and potential opponent
Training starts mid-June
To assure that all participants are proficient with boxing basics, attendance of a minimum of one class/week at Ford’s, and minimum of 2 sparring sessions will be required. Discounted gym passes and additional classes/private training sessions/sparring will be available (most people choose to do more than the minimum!). If a boxer wants to train at another gym and can demonstrate reasonable proficiency throughout, they can be exempted from the provided classes, but will be asked to participate in the minimum 2 sparring sessions. This will be a USA Boxing-sanctioned event (http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Boxing), and participants will be required to register with USA Boxing prior to any sparring.
Mock Weigh-in at the venue – Sun, Aug 28th (time/location to be confirmed)
Bring your entourage! You get to choose your ring name, choose your entry music, face-off with your opponent, and ham it up for your own 1 minute promo video. Should be a fun and entertaining afternoon!
Fight night! Sat, Sept 24th at the Red Mouse Bar and Grill – 3738 Cty Rd P, Cross Plains, WI (608)798-9990
Fighters will be required to wear headgear and 16 oz gloves, while boxing 3 rounds -1.5 min each with a 1 min rest between.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you in the gym!! – Bob Lynch Boxing Foundation board members
