MORE than 100 people packed into The School of Hard Knox to watch talented boxers battle it out to raise funds for charity. 

On Saturday, March 14 boxers from across Somerset got into the ring and fought in 14 fights from junior bouts to TFC title fights. 

The event, which was hosted at the school at The Oaktree Arena, was hosted to raise funds for In Charley's Memory, a mental health charity based in Burnham-on-Sea.

Bobby Jones, co-owner of The School of Hard Knox, said: "We had a brilliant night at our boxing home show.

"We do them every few months to keep our boxers active and bring a great night along the way in the local area.

"We always invite small local charities along and set up a stall to help raise money for them as much as we can and charley's memory is close to all of us in our club as we do a lot for mental health and think it's an excellent charity. 

"We had 14 fights on the evening from junior bouts all the way up to two TFC title fights which our guys both won alot of people attended and was a very successful show.

"Once this terrible time has passed we will be looking forward to getting back and running and hosting another homeshow at our home." 

Dawn Carey, operations manager at In Charley's Memory, said the charity is 'extremely grateful' for the school's support. 

"Bobby and his team are amazing. Not only do they help raise money but they are helping us raise awareness which is equally important," Dawn said.
