Beat The 9 to 5 Boredom With White Collar Boxing

It’s time to take off your tie, loosen your collar and roll up the sleeves of your stuffy work shirt and get in touch with your primal side. World Boxing Entertainment, (WBE) presents the eleventh White Collar Boxing Event, Ring Kings, on the 25th of February – and it promises to be a an adrenaline-packed fight night showcasing some of South Africa’s premier white collar boxing talent.

White collar boxing is a form of boxing where men and women in white collar professions train to fight at special events. It began at a boxing gym in New York in the 1990s, where urban professionals gathered to spar against one another as a way of blowing off steam and staying active. The sport has taken SA by storm, and many boxing enthusiasts have trained hard and signed up to compete in the WBE White Collar events. Ring Kings will be held at the Scarlet Ribbon in Stoneridge Shopping Centre in Greenstone Park, transforming the venue into a boxing Auditorium where those with a passion for pugilism can show off their skills.

Stephen Castle, the President of World Boxing Entertainment, will be fighting on the night, against Allan Pereira. Castle explains the appeal of this form of the sport: “There are many people out there – men, and yes, women – who enjoy the challenge of facing an opponent in the ring, but can only take part in the sport after work and on weekends. WBE has come up with a fantastic way for these fighters to experience the thrill of taking part in real boxing matches. And the fact that each fight night has a full fight card and a packed audience shows just how popular these events are.”
