SPOTLIGHT ON THE REAL FIGHT CLUB
Founded by London event promoter Alan Lacey, The Real Fight Club organizes White Collar Boxing training and boxing evenings for its 5900 White Collar Warriors, many of whom work for or run leading companies.
The phenonemon has taken boxing into the boardroom and significantly, our most recent event, The Boodles Boxing Ball attracted a blue chip live audience which notably included Their Royal Highnesses Princes William and Harry along with numerous members of the aristocracy. White Collar Boxing training is also a growing activity within the mainstream health and fitness arena.
In the past five years the club has pioneered Celebrity Boxing with BBC Sport Relief featuring Ricky Gervais, and has organized nearly 60 White Collar Boxing Gala Fundraisers, Private functions & boxing hall events with no injuries other than the occasional bloody nose. Our modern day Corinthians all have to go back to the office the next day (to a hero's welcome).
The Real Fight Club Boxing bouts are carefully and professionally matched using criteria based on age, weight, experience, fitness and boxing skill. Boxers compete over 3 x 2 minute rounds, under the safety-first rules and auspices of The International White Collar Boxing Association who insist that all Boxers undergo rigorous training at numerous locations across London and Europe with quality approved trainers. Contestants use 16oz gloves and head guards in generally non-decision bouts. Extensive medical precautions are taken.
The Real Fight Club although not a charity itself, has however helped to raise almost £1million for various good causes around the World.
