Tonight is the night! White collar boxing is back in Drogheda’s recently revamped Westcourt Hotel and if last years event is anything to go by, this will be one very exciting and energetic night!!! Fight Night 2011 is presented by Drogheda & District Chamber in conjunction with whitecollarboxing.ie and the Holy Family Boxing Club. Amateur boxers go head to head and battle each other to the bitter end, all in aid of charity!
This high-profile event has been the talk of Drogheda for weeks now and is having a major positive effect on the town socially and economically, bringing the community together for a great cause.
All the contestants have been extremely busy training hard over the last 6 weeks with professional boxers in the Holy Family Club, focusing on fitness, safety, nutrition, recovery, and physical and mental health and raising money for the Drogheda Youth Development in conjunction with the Boyne Fishermen Rescue and Recovery service.
Speaking to contestant Dynamo Dearbhla today she told me she’s feeling “very hyper and very excited!! I’ve been training twice a week for the last 6-8 weeks in the Holy Family Boxing Club as well as my usual workouts in the gym plus running 10 kilometres every day! I’m here for the fun and the good cause, I’m very excited about tonight and want to put up a great fight!” Dearbhla Clarke will go head to head with fitness friend Sandra Zelnyte from Lithuania tonight. “Any final words on white collar boxing?” I asked Dearbhla, “Thank God for aloe vera!!! I have already got battle wounds from training, it’s a life saver!!”. Sounds like this is going to be a very exciting night! Original band Aztaria will be rocking Dearbhlas’ entrance walk with their very own “Right Thru” track along with a performance from pole dancing champion 2011 Arlene Caffrey.
Best of luck to all the contestants, they are all winners at the end of the night! Don’t miss Fight Night 2011 in the Westcourt Hotel, West Street, Drogheda, doors open at 8.00pm.
