The Ultra White Collar Boxing event takes place in Maidstone to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Ben has been taking part in training sessions twice a week for eight weeks in preparation.
ADEY sales manager Ben Garrett is stepping into the ring for a charity boxing match on 19 July.
He said: “I’ve taken part in Tough Mudder, but that was nothing compared to this. I really enjoy taking on new challenges and I’m looking forward to finally getting into the ring now as it’s been a tough few weeks. I’ve never done anything like this before and while I knew it would be hard, I don’t think I was quite prepared for just how challenging it’s been!”
ADEY’s marketing director Haimish Mead said: “We’re all fully behind Ben as he prepares for his bout and full credit to him for having a go at one of the toughest sports around to raise funds for such a good cause. He’s put in a lot of hard work and hopefully he’ll remember to duck at the right times.”
Ben’s boxing debut will be contested over three rounds of two minutes with a minute break between each. All the necessary safety precautions are taken and protective head gear is worn. To sponsor Ben visit https://www.justgiving.com/Ben-garrett2/
