Ding Dong in Hong Kong

Just under 800 guests turned up to Hedge Fund Fight Nite to witness bankers and hedge fund managers battle it out in a boxing ring on October 30, 2008 at a purpose built venue on the grounds of the Indian Recreation Club, opposite the Hong Kong Stadium.

The dirty dozen slugged it out at the black tie event and were cheered on by their peers in the finance industry. The event raised just under HK$1million for charities Operation Smile and Operation Breakthrough.

The training over the past five months paid off and the final contenders put in a stirling effort. The judges once again saw some superb boxing and the crowd witnessed two technical knockouts, Don King herald the event as the Ding Dong in Hong Kong and bikini clad ring girls calling each round.

The results were as follows:

Nissim “The Miracle” Tse v James “Headhunter” Carrs – Carrs won

Tom “Bid Hitter” Taw v Hugh “Pile Driver” – Taw won

James “Squeeze” McCaughey v Graham “The Real Deal” McNeill – McNeill won

Steve “Spit n Sawdust” Pengelly v Frank “The Reaper” Reed – Pengelly won

Rich “The Lion Heart” Le-Gallez v Alex “The Baby Faced Assassin” Bellingham – Le-Gallez won

Ben “The Bomb” Worthington v Elliot “The Machine Gun” Odell – Odell won

The matches are set for this great charity event! Watch Tim Murphy from IP Global, Andrew Wong Kee from JAB Gym and the fighters themselves discuss the upcoming brawl on 30 October.

After a couple of days of heavy sparring and training the above guys have been shortlist for the main event. Everyone showed a lot of heart and guts during the week of assessments but it basically came down to skill level and the ability to match guys up on the night. Four months on and after a broken nose, several black eyes and enough blood, sweat and tears to last a lifetime, we have come up with the following bouts;

1.Steve Pengelly vs Adam Upton

2.Richard Le-Gallez vs Chris Trent vs James McCaughey

3.Granham McNeill vs Richard Le-Gallez vs Alex Bellingham

4.Ben Worthington vs Elliot Odell vs Nick Lambe

5.Thomas Taw vs Hugh Driver

6.Nissim Tse vs James Carss vs John Wixley

Each person will be fighting/training for the 12 spots available on the night, there will be 6 fights with the remaining 4 guys will be kept on board as reserve. I have placed guys into groups (in roughly the same weight class) of 3 or 2. The guys will not find out till the week of the “Weigh In” night as to who is fighting who for the name of charity and pride.

Now we are into full scale warfare training, guys have a few weeks to impress and see how truly deep their mind and body can go.

Lets get ready to RUMBLE.
