Boxing for Buhinga - The Search is On!

Not a weekly update today but rather a plea out to the world (if anyone is out there? hello?)

A minor disaster has befallen the female contingent of the Boxing for Buhinga team - in that Lora has had to drop out of fight night!

This means we need to find another girl who is willing to fight Helen (me!) on the night of the 24th of November, otherwise she too will have to drop out. (don't worry I'll still be training, accidentally dying my skin green. losing my shoes etc)

The requirements at this point will need to be:

- Someone who has previously been training or boxing regularly- unfortunately a beginner won't have time to learn at this point
- You're not too experienced - as readers of the blog will know we're only two months into this so I'm not going to be able to fight someone who is an expert.
- You don't have to come to training sessions but the ability to meet up and do some sparring would be good
- Ideally be willing/able to sell a few tickets for the night - the whole idea is to get a variety of people fighting so we have the best possible ticket sales on the night

If you know anyone who might be able to join me, or you want to get involved yourself give me a shout at twosaqueue@gmail.com.
