About Event

White Collar Boxing™ is so-called because its many participants come mainly from the white collar professions. It is a fast growing sport for men and women between the ages of 22 and 55 who look to challenge themselves in a controlled boxing environment. With an emphasis on safety, boxers are professionally trained in a 12-week program, to go on to participate in a 3x2 minute round bout in white collar events sanctioned by the World White Collar Boxing Association (WWCBA).

The main event, at the end of the training period, is a 4-course black-tie dinner with the squad members facing off against one another in the squared circle. Over 1,000  people will attend to witness the result of all that training as the night's drama unfolds. Charged with the personal emotions of knowing the participants, the audience is guaranteed to give each boxer a roaring welcome they will never forget. As the final bell sounds, regardless of the outcome of the fight, the participants will have joined one of the most elite groups on this planet, that of being a white collar boxer.

Ask any of the hundreds of men and women who have taken the journey of white collar boxing™ and they will tell you it is one of the best experiences of their lives, from the intensity of their training and the camaraderie built with fellow boxers to the obvious excitement of boxing in front of their family and friends. All this and knowing that their efforts will also help raise funds for charity.

Funds raised through this fundraising campaign will go towards supporting the Children's Surgical Centre (CSC) in Cambodia.  The CSC provides a range of specialised rehabilitation surgical services, surgical training, and direct support to the people of Cambodia – free of charge. CSC is an international non-governmental organization (INGO) recognised by the Cambodian Royal Government.

The upcoming IPP White Collar Boxing event in Singapore will be held on 29 April 2017.
