A LATCHFORD mum has taken on the challenge of a three-round boxing match to benefit a cancer charity.

The match will take place at Halliwell Jones Stadium and is part of the Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) series.

This series aims to train amateurs to participate in boxing matches in order to raise funds for good causes.

According to the organization’s website, events in Warrington have so far raised over £150,000 in total.

Along the way, the UWCB is offering eight weeks of free training sessions to participants – worth around £300 – and ensuring competitors are level before the fight.

Sammy, who has never boxed before, said: “I am doing this for cancer research as a close family member was diagnosed with bowel cancer, and I felt the event boxing would take me out of my comfort zone and be a great thing to focus on to get me through this horrible time, and it really worked.”

Latchford’s mother has currently raised almost £300 before the fight and is sponsored by Energie Fitness, Gladragz at Latchford Village and More Than Ladders.

During the preparation for the fight, Sammy spent time with a personal trainer: “I had a lot of support from Lisa Langley at Energie Fitness who helped me throughout my journey by putting extra time into my training.

“I also participated in many classes at the gym to improve my level of fitness.”

Sammy added: “Cancer research is an incredible cause that helps loved ones in so many ways.

“If anyone could give anything – as little or as much as possible – it will go a long way for those in need.”
