A charity fight night is set to go ahead in Tauranga with people from all walks of life set to get inside the boxing ring.
The Tauranga Charity Boxing Challenge is designed to test the courage of the participants and find out who will take the title of Lord of the Ring.
The event, sanctioned by the New Zealand Professional Boxing Association, will see Western Bay professionals go head to head in three two- minute rounds.
Co-promoter Andy Martin said Tauranga had been "screaming out'' for a corporate night of entertainment, ``which we are going to deliver in spades on the 8th of December''.
Corporate boxing is where two evenly-matched novice's train for a number of weeks before they meet one another in the boxing ring.
The first two competitors to sign up are Hobec partner John Mackay and Aaron Moores from Craig's Investment Partners.
Funds raised on the evening will go to Waipuna Hospice.
