Boxxer boss Ben Shalom has reached out to Ringside Charitable Trust in the hope of helping the charity raise vital funds for ex-boxers in need.
The charity, the only one of its kind in the UK, helps fighters who have fallen on hard times and hopes to raise enough money to open up a retirement home for fighters who struggle after the final bell tolls on their careers.
Ringside Charitable Trust has had fighters and people within the sport take part in money-raising events, including fire walks, abseiling and parachute jumps as they bid to help retired boxers.
Until now, none of the major promoters in the UK have volunteered help, but Boxxer have reached out to RCT’s chairman Dave Harris.
Harris and Shalom met briefly at the British Boxing Board of Control Awards dinner a week ago and Shalom told Harris, “I want to help.”
Harris has asked for a meeting in London in the hope of productive talks between the two parties.
