Ryan Dhinsa, a property solicitor at Raworths, will be swapping his shirt and tie for boxing gloves when he steps into a boxing ring at the Majestic Hotel. Taking place on December 8th, the Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) event will see Ryan take part in a competitive bout to raise funds for Cancer Research.
Ryan who has been working with Raworths as a solicitor for the last eighteen months, started boxing as a teenager but had let the sport lapse until recently when he decided to take part in the UWCB event.
Speaking about his involvement he said: “I used to box as a kid, so when I saw the event advertised I thought why not give it a go!”
Standing at 6ft 5in, Ryan has undertaken eight weeks of training to get him into the best condition ahead of his match.
He continued: “I’m really looking forward to it, but I’m a bit nervous. Ultimately, it’s a great cause and I’ve already beaten my fundraising target which I’m really pleased about. Cancer impacts everyone and I’m proud to be involved, I’m sure it’s going to be a great evening.”
Colleagues, family and friends of Ryan’s will be attending the event to show their support on the evening and donations can be made at Ryan’s Just Giving page:
Ultra White Collar Boxing has run over 1,000 events since 2009 and has raised over £10 Million for Cancer Research UK to date.
