Sheffield women box for charity

Have your say

Thirty female boxers are hitting out for charity with the help of Sheffield fight legend Glyn Rhodes and his team.

The girls, all beginners, are having eight weeks training under the former champion’s guidance at Sheffield Boxing Centre.

The programme culminates at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough ground on Sunday June 29 (3pm).

The event, run by Pink Collar Boxing, will see the girls paired up to face each other in 15 bouts of three two-minute rounds.

Pink Collar was set up by Venetia Sanders and Daniel Gray in Derby and is taking the country by storm.

Glyn Rhodes said: “The girls are very enthusiastic but its great fun. They are working just as hard as the boys do and I’m looking forward to the big day.”

Each girl can chose her own charity to donate proceeds to.

Tickets are available from the girls, from Sheffield Boxing Centre or through the website at
