A lively crowd was in place at the Ultra White Collar Boxing event to see scores of matches across two boxing rings and an MMA ‘cage’. Competitors undertake a gruelling eight-week training programme before being matched up for fight night, all in the name of charity.
After three exciting rounds, Mario unfortunately lost his fight on points, but he was in good spirits afterwards and hasn’t ruled out making a return to the ring in the future.
Here’s a snippet of the fight (Mario’s in red):
All of this is in aid of Cancer Research UK. Cancer research is an ever-important cause – statistically, one in two people will have cancer in their lifetime. Cancer Research UK works tirelessly on improving our chances of surviving all sorts of cancers.
There’s still time to make a donation on Mario’s Just Giving page.
