Everything that boxing embodies will be on display on November 16 when the British Chamber of Commerce and Tanner De Witt present the 11th edition of its annual Breakthrough Boxing pro-am fight night. Cocktails and a three-course dinner at the Hong Kong Football Club are followed by six pro and amateur bouts in the ring. What sets this boxing event apart is its community spirit. Boxers in the blue corner have been chosen from the Hong Kong Police’s Operation Breakthrough Boxing program, a community project which uses sport to fight crime and juvenile delinquency, while the opposing red corner draws boxers from clubs in Hong Kong, Macau and Bangkok. The evening’s main fight will see Hong Kong’s Surez “The Warrior” Gurung go round for found with Bangkok’s Davul “The Hammer” Manopkanchang. From ringside, spectators will have the chance to bid on great items in the live silent auctions, which include tickets to Manny Pacquiao’s Macau fight, and a chance to train with top HK boxer Red “The Wonder Kid” Tso.
Take an uppercut for charity.
N.B. This event has been cancelled.
