Anyone who’s met Mario, General Manager at Manchester’s glitzy, 5-star Hotel Gotham, will know he’s more at home in a 3-piece suit than boxing gloves and, as he puts it, “far more likely to be seen with a glass of sherry than fighting”.
Incredibly, Mario will be stepping into the ring after only 8 weeks of preparation. He’s following a gruelling training and nutrition regime to ensure he’s fighting fit by the time of the event at Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on 18th December.
All of this is in aid of Cancer Research UK (a charity supported by ESA Risk’s Mike Wright earlier in the year). 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.
