About

Fight for charity is an opportunity for businesses and the community to come together in support of worthy Manitoba charities, as well as to enjoy a great night of boxing, entertainment and red carpet glamour. The 2017 event is in support of the Canadian Red Cross.

The event will consist of 10 amateur fights that pit Manitoba industries against each other for some fun, friendly competition and sportsmanship. All our participants are receiving professional training through Pan Am Boxing to get in fighting shape! Each fighter has a personal fundraising goal and is looking for sponsorship from the community.

Fighter profiles and Red Cross sponsorship pages are now live!

The event will also feature amazing live music by Winnipeg's famous Big City All Star Band.

Emcees for the evening will be Kiss102.3 FM's morning hosts, Drew Kozub and Nesta Matthews.
