The all-girl boxing show at Hillsborough was such a success that a repeat show is being organised.

Thirty females new to the sport faced each other in 15 pairs at a packed event at a suite at the Sheffield Wednesday ground.

And more than £3,000 was raised for over 15 local and national charities.

The two biggest fundraisers Ania Wloszczyzna. and Alice Cauldwellmade over £1,000 each - one for the Royal National Institute for the Blind and the other for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The girls were trained in an intensivbe eight-week course by Sheffield Boxing legend Glyn Rhodes and his team at Sheffield Boxing Centre, Hillsborough. Now organisers Pink Collar Boxing are looking for the next 30 girls willing to throw their weight about in the ring in aid of charity.

Training starts at Sheffield Boxing Centre on July 14 (8pm) and interested girls can sign up through the website www.pinkcollarboxing.co.uk. They are also on Facebook- www.facebook.com/ladiespinkcollarboxing.

The show will be beginning of September at Hillsborough.
