DEBRA Fight Night, the biggest charity fundraising boxing event hosted by Hall of Fame boxing manager and promoter Frank Warren, returns to London for a night of action-packed live boxing on October 26.

The annual charity boxing event, now in its 14th year, takes place at the luxurious Park Lane Hilton Hotel in London.

Billed as the ‘Hurricane in the Hilton’, this year’s live boxing is military-themed and will showcase top-quality bouts courtesy of the UK Armed Forces Boxing Association, while the special speaker on the night will be Falkland war hero and British Army veteran Simon Weston.

The night of first-class boxing will be in aid of the national charity DEBRA, which supports people suffering from the potentially fatal skin condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).

The DEBRA Fight Night will be hosted by Frank Warren and Box Nation and is a glamorous black-tie event, attended by some of the nation’s favourite sports and TV stars.

Guests will be treated to a sparkling drinks reception, three course dinner with wine and a charity auction with fabulous prizes.

DEBRA is the national charity in the UK supporting people suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a potentially painful skin condition that causes constant pain due to unstoppable internal and external blistering.

All of the proceeds from the night will help DEBRA fight EB and could help fund specialist EB nurses providing life-changing care across the country.

“DEBRA Fight Night is an exceptional evening in aid of a great charity. I’ve hosted the annual DEBRA Fight Night for the past 14 years to support the charity’s fundraising,” said Warren.

“I got involved with DEBRA after meeting a wonderful young man called Jonny Kennedy, who had EB. I wanted to commemorate his life and raise funds to help suffers of this terrible skin condition.

“We are putting on a high-adrenaline night of first-class military boxing which will feature exciting boxing bouts showcasing the skills and experience of our amazing Armed Forces boxers.

“I am asking the public to come out and help us raise funds for DEBRA and enjoy a great night of boxing.”

*Tickets available on an individual basis or in tables of ten. Book online at debra.org.uk/fightnight or call 01344 771961.
