Jason is a ‘knockout’ at a boxing extravaganza!

Jason is a ‘knockout’ at a boxing extravaganza!
Posted:
Jason Jackson had been training hard for his charity fight at an Ultra White Collar Boxing event staged at the Bescott Stadium in Walsall. Little did he realise that he would be promoted with his opponent as the ‘Fight of the Night’. Well the fight in front of around 1,200 people lived up to expectations with Jason winning all three rounds to claim victory.

Jason is the commercial vehicle sales manager for Greenhous Vauxhall and he took on the challenge to raise funds for the Cancer Research UK charity in memory of his mother-in-law who had lost her personal battle with cancer. Jason recalls the excitement of the evening saying: “It was an exciting evening.  I was not on until later in the evening so I could spend time with my family and friends watching the earlier bouts.  I had about 40 supporters altogether which spurred me on to want to do well.

“I have raised around £900 for Cancer Research UK which exceeded my original target of £500.  I am very grateful for the support I have received from family, friends and colleagues.  The evening raised over £13,500 for the charity.”

Jason impressed so much he has been invited to compete for the Black Country in an event against Blackpool, at the seaside town.  It will be over four rounds with lighter gloves and no head guards next time.  We wish him luck.
