All Fight 4 Victory bouts confirmed


The final two fights for next year’s Fight 4 Victory have been confirmed.

All ten bouts have now been announced and the latest will see two engineers square up against each other, while Stonewood Homes co-owner Rhys Horncastle will battle Paul Hammett, brother of former All Black Mark Hammett.

Engineer Karl Griffith, of Talley’s, will fight Anchor Engineering owner Heath Botica.

All four men say they’ve never boxed before but Paul admitted to a few fights “without gloves”.

Victory Boxing Charitable Trust programme director, Paul Hampton, says he’s delighted with the card.

“We’re really excited to get all ten fights, it’s been a long process but now we can start training and really get into it.”

The card now has lawyers, chefs, hairdressers, a police officer, an army officer, engineers, a city councillor, a newspaper editor and business owners.

Paul says the range of people who have put their names forward has been a real highlight. “We’re really happy with the names that have come forward and with the range of backgrounds, and all of them are there to support the programme.”

Corporate tables for the event on April 4 are sold out and general admission tickets will go on sale in late January.
