5 months rigorous training

4 eliminations to survive

3 rounds in the ring

2 minutes per round

1 million HKD fundraising target


Previously hosted in marquees across Hong Kong Island, for its 10th year the event returned back to traditions with a luxurious hotel venue. The event is a sit down black tie dinner with tables surrounding the ring. Guests enjoy a four course dinner with matching wines, beer and soft drinks, with entertainment of up to 8 boxing bouts and a live charity fundraising auction. As well as being a completely unique night out, it remains to be a premier networking event for the finance industry, with a magnificent and electrifying atmosphere guaranteed. Every year there is a large fundraising element in which all the proceeds raised on the night go to Beam International Foundation, Operation Breakthrough and the Sovereign Art Foundation – with a continued fundraising target set to break the HK$1 million mark.

2016 Boxers

Our most recent event in 2016 once again received a great reception as over 600 guests from the finance industry clapped and cheered on 16 boxers fighting in the ring. After 5 months rigorous training at JAB, all boxers performed exceptionally well to entertain the guests in the name of charity.


The process over the last few months has been amazing. From not having ever boxed before to being here at the end is a testament to the capabilities of the JAB team. They must have realised the uphill battle ahead for me when they saw me at those first training sessions! It’s been an amazing journey and one that I won’t forget anytime soon.

Knowing it is a big fundraiser for charity clinched the deal and it was full on into training. I had grown tired of my previous workouts and this regime has taken my fitness to higher levels and taught me new exercises and drills that I will keep up long after the lights have gone down and the crowds gone home.
— Darryl “Body Blow” Ricklow (Louis Capital Markets Ltd)
Training has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. It has taught me so much about discipline, focus and determination. Boxing has shown me what ‘focus’ and ‘control’ really mean, it has helped me define ‘ victory’ and ‘defeat’ so much more clearly, both inside the ring and outside.
— Devi “The Devastator” Kumar (Charterhouse Partnership)
I think one of the great things about this experience is seeing that even in what is ultimately an individual sport, there is a great team atmosphere and everyone is keen to help each other improve as much as possible along the way.
— Richie “Ricardo” Gifford (HSBC)
Four months of aches, pains and bruises later, I am walking away from this journey in the best shape of my life, having gotten to know some incredible people and in love with one of the most technical, challenging sports I’ve ever attempted. A million thanks to the trainers at JAB, the sparring partners, the event organisers and everyone else who has supported me along the way.
