Mario Ovsenjak, Hotel & Leisure Management Consultant, raised more than £2,000 for Cancer Research UK when he made his debut appearance in the boxing ring just before Christmas last year. After 3 rounds, he lost on points, unfortunately. However, Mario has taken the opportunity to add a win next to his name and to raise more money for charity – he’ll be returning to the ring on Sunday 20th March in aid of Cancer Research UK, once again.
Ahead of his first fight, Mario remarked that he was “far more likely to be seen with a glass of sherry than fighting”. Clearly, that’s starting to change. As before, Mario has entered a gruelling 8-week training and nutrition regime to ensure he’s fighting fit by the time of the event at Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester.
Here’s a taste of what that entails:
All of this is in aid of Cancer Research UK (a charity supported by ESA Risk’s Mike Wright earlier in 2021). Cancer research is an ever-important cause – statistically, 1 in 2 people will have cancer in their lifetime. Cancer Research UK works tirelessly on improving our chances of surviving all sorts of cancers.
