‘Industry Rumble’ boxing fundraiser for prostate cancer

‘Industry Rumble’ boxing fundraiser in support of prostate cancer

Glozier-Ewing Productions are proud to announce the ‘Industry Rumble Fight for Life’ on Friday 29 April in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of NZ.

Building on last year’s very successful event which raised more than $9000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the ‘Industry Rumble’ programme features 14 fights, including the NZNBF Middleweight Title and at least one other professional fight.

Current NZNBF Middleweight champion “The Quiet Assassin” Ivana Siao, will square off against “Iron” Mose Auimatagi in defence of his title, and “Hazardous” Tino Honey will take on Eden McGrath. Before then, 24 novice fighters, four of whom are women, will test their mettle in 12 fights. All but two of the novice fighters will climb into the ring for the very first time.

Bruce Glozier of Glozier Boxing is overseeing the training of approximately 10 of the fighters, including at least four female fighters. It is understood that one of women wanted to get involved following her family’s experience with cancer. One of the organisers, Peter Ewing is himself a Prostate Cancer survivor.

The building industry and its suppliers have been quick to rally to the prostate cancer cause. Corporate tables have already sold out. The organisers are particularly grateful to Hawkins Construction, Go Rentals and PlaceMakers Cook Street for their early support.

An auction will be held on the night with all proceeds going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

What: Industry Rumble Fight for Life fundraiser in support of Prostate Cancer
When: Friday 29th April - Doors open 6.30pm - Fights start at 7.30pm
Where: Auckland Boxing Association, 1 Ngahura Street, Eden Terrace
Cost: Terrace tickets are available at $45 each, phone Peter Ewing 021 728 822.
