Comms-care remain undefeated
Comms-care recently attended the CRN Fight Night supporting two of their employees who had volunteered to battle it out in the ring for Comms-care’s chosen charity, The Railway Children. As one of the key sponsors at this premier channel event Comms-care were looking to maintain their 100% record at the Fight Night after last year’s victory by Mark ‘The Enforcer’ Forster.
The two contenders Joey ‘Jackhammer’ Ghader and Gary ‘The Slayer’ Simpson entered the ring competing against fellow channel contenders at The Brewery in East London. For the second year running Comms-care maintained their 100% record with each contender coming out on top, winning their bouts and more importantly raising much appreciated funds for Comms-care’s chosen charity The Railway Children.
Up first for Comms-care was Joey ‘Jackhammer’ Ghader against Menelik ‘Bad News’ Brown. Fortunately for Joey it was indeed ‘Bad News’ for Brown as Comms-care’s ‘Jackhammer’ was announced the winner through a split decision from the audience.
Joey commented on the experience: “What an event, the buzz you get when you walk out into the ring, and then to win, amazing! A great honour to represent Comms-care and our chosen charity ‘The Railway Children’ and the support I received was fantastic. I would recommend for anyone to get this on your ‘things to do before I die’ list!”
Still reeling in the elation of Joey’s success the night got even better for Comms-care when Gary Simpson known as ‘The Slayer’ took out ‘The Guvnor’ Richard Austen after just 20 seconds with a devastating combination of blows to his opponent.
Gary commented on the evening: “The CRN Fight Night has to be up there as one of the best things I’ve ever done.The training leading up to the fight was hard; the nerves on the day were almost unbearable. The feeling as I walked to the ring was amazing and knocking out a 6’ 5” beast of a man in the first round....it couldn’t have gone any better. In all seriousness, I have raised a great deal of money for a very worthwhile charity, lost weight and am the fittest I have ever been which is what I set out to do. I’d like to thank everyone who sponsored me and for all the support I have had over the past 3 months. The pressure is on next year. Comms-care is still undefeated in 3 CRN fights!”
As well as raising money for The Railway Children, Comms-care also donated 2 x Club Wembley tickets to the auction on the evening to watch England v Hungary. Again, all money raised on the evening went to charity.
