Full Throttle Fight Night 3-Redemption, hosted by the Comox Valley Boxing Club, was a huge success and ran like a Swiss watch.
That’s the word from local fitness guru Marc St. Jules, who MC’d the Saturday night event at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
The big winners were three local groups, as over $600 was raised for the Ovarian Cancer Society, $250 for The Boys and Girls Club and $850 for the SPCA.
“The Comox Valley Sports Centre was very impressed with the card, crowd, layout and professionalism and welcome Full Throttle Fight Night back in the future,” St. Jules said.
“(CVBC coach) Jonny Mac and myself have been approached and complimented by many people who were dragged there by friends and had such a good time they are looking forward to the next event. “Jonny Mac is considering a scaled down version a few months down the road in Cumberland,” St. Jules added.
“There were no losers as everyone that stepped into the ring was a winner. The out-of-town guests were blown away by the hospitality – from the weigh-ins Friday night to the Sunday wrap-up pancake breakfast in which all participants left with great prizes and awards.
“Jonny Mac would like to give his biggest, baddest bear hug to all the fighers, fans, sponsors, volunteers and local media for all that they have done to help make this event possible,” St. Jules said.
