Grass Roots – Charity Boxing Show in aid of the Lincoln City Youth Academy

The Lincoln Fight Factory team have once again teamed up with Lincoln City FC to host another boxing show to raise money for the youth academy on 16 July 2017.

Over the last 5 years the gym has raised in the region of £5,000 for the football club by way of raffles and a charity boxing show, but in July we hope to raise £10,000 in one night.

We are looking first time boxers and experienced fighters to do their bit in the ring for a great cause – 100% of the profit will be given to the future of your home town’s football club and we still need fighters – so do you have what it takes to step into the ring and get punched in the face?  If you do call Shawn Burton on 07900932690.

Over the last few years the Lincoln Fight Factory has raised over £90,000 for some great charities including Adis Mission, Lincs to Nepal, Cancer Research, Macmillan Cancer Foundation, Ethan Maull’s ‘Up Yours to Cancer’ Foundation, The Fire Fighters Charity and the Injured Jockies Fund, but this time we are promoting a show in conjunction with Lincoln City FC.

The Youth Academy is aiming to raise in the region of £40,000 next season to maximise the development of its 170 young players. Thanks to Trevor Burton and his close links with the football club and its management staff we have been selected to host the event.

Have you got what it takes?

All fights will be over 3×2 minute rounds and matched on weight and experience.  We already have about 6 matches made but we need about another 12 fighters to come forward and get invovled.

You need dedication, heart, determination and be able to sell about 20 tickets each to family and friends so we can fill the gym out and make a sizable donation.

Do you want to fight a friend?

You can match the fights yourself if you want to fight a friend, but the final say will be from the coaching staff at the gym so we have even and entertaining fights for the crowd to see.

How I you get involved?

Just come to the Lincoln Fight Factory on George Street on Monday 12 June at 6:00pm to express your interest and give one of the classes a go.  We have all the equipment you need to start with – you just need to bring a gum shield, towel and willingness to learn.

Tickets for the show are priced at £20 each or a VIP package for £300 includes a VIP table of 10, food, private bar and sponsorship of a fight.
