GLEASON'S PUTS OUT THE CALL–MASTER BOXERS NEEDED!

Boxing Show in Toronto Canada

Hi All Master Boxers,

Join this charity event on Nov 12 2016 to see the bravest boxers on Bay St and Wall St step in the ring for a good cause.

As determined by sports scientists, pound for pound boxing is the toughest sport in the world. From the discipline, endurance and heart that goes into gloving up, boxing has garnered spectator respect and interest since the Ancient Greeks believed it to be a sport enjoyed by the Gods on Olympus. From Olympian bouts to professional prize fights, boxing is a spectator sport appreciated by millions globally.

Battle of the Suits aims to bring boxing to the White Collar professional world in a safe yet exciting competitive platform.

We're talking about everyday workers who train like elite athletes stepping into the ring to fight three 2-minute rounds against a fellow white collar professional.

The event is sanctioned by Boxing Ontario a member of AIBA. Master boxing rules will be followed.
