Women from Bray and Greystones have signed up to take part in a women's only fight night in aid of breast cancer.

The girls have started training for the fight of their lives to help raise money for women who are fighting for their lives right across the country.

Former professional boxer, Jim Rock, also known as the Pink Panther, gave the ladies some tips last Friday in Greystones Studios.

'The Pink Punch Up' will be on in Dublin in July. 30 women from County Wicklow are undertaking an intensive six weeks of training before they take to the boxing ring to fight against breast cancer and raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Ireland.

Jim was happy to give the girls from Bray and Greystones his advice for their fight night.

Sarah Mackay, event organiser, holds an event every year for Breast Cancer Ireland as Breast Cancer is a disease that hits women and can destroy their confidence. It affects over 2000 women in Ireland every year.

'My goal is to always bring women together and build their confidence through fitness and strength,' said Sarah.

The fight is taking place on July 19 in Club 92 at 7.30pm. However, the ladies won't be the only ones taking to the ring as the night holds a host of surprises including Ring Boys and an amazing special guest performance from Male Pole Performer Marcin Miller Plus.

There will be 15 fights in total and after a DJ will provide knockout entertainment continuing late into the night.

All the proceeds from this show will provide vital funds for Breast Cancer Ireland. Tickets are €15 and they include entry into Club 92 afterwards. To purchase your ticket contact Sarah on (085) 8179073.
