The Ringside Rest & Care Home for ex-boxers

Many boxers have entertained us over the decades, and many now need our help in hard times. All in our sport will be aware of former boxers who struggle mentally, physically and socially, and as fans we all have a responsibility. 2019 is our opportunity to raise funds for the Ringside Rest & Care Home, a fantastic project to establish a thirty-six bed residential care facility which will be of enormous benefit to those who sadly have no means of support in dark times.

A team of us, including current and former professional boxers Dave Birmingham, Joel McIntyre, Chris Hobbs, Jeff Ofori, Brad and Ashley Pauls,top female prospect Lucy Wildheart and others to be confirmed will be undertaking a three mile high skydive on Saturday 1st June at GoSkyDive on Salisbury Plain to raise as much as we can to help this very valuable project, one that is very close to our hearts. The boxers and myself are covering the cost of the skydive ourselves, so every single penny raised without exception goes to the cause. It will be a very unique event, professional and former boxers all jumping out of a plane together to help our own, and we would be very, very grateful if you could donate and support us in our efforts.

Anthony Joshua will be wearing the Ringside Rest & Care Home logo on in his shorts in his next world heavyweight title fight, and we've had great support from Miles Shinkwin, Rameez Mahmood and all of Carl Greaves boxers36991308_1552382173578352_r.jpeg36991308_155238220428451_r.jpeg36991308_1552382213392801_r.jpeg36991308_1552382235409986_r.jpeg36991308_1552382270328184_r.jpeg who are also showing their support by wearing the logo on their kit. Our skydive is one of a number of events taking place in support during 2019.

Please help us to help those in boxing who really need a helping hand. Between us, we can do it!

Many thanks to everyone.
