Fit Firey Fighters: Meet Aggression Sessions’ Boxers

It’s all for charity


Durham’s fittest fighters will go head to head in the return of our only student Charity Boxing Event.

Aggression Sessions has come back with a hoard of boys and girls ready to knock each other about for charity, and probably to raise awareness of their brand.

Wannabe BNOCs, actual BNOCs and The Tab blind dates star Hector Judd will be putting their good looks, and reputations on the line to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. Last year the event raised almost £4000 for Help for Heroes.

The lads organising the night teamed up with Durham promo video guru Ben Stevens to reveal the real reason why the guys and girls are taking part: love life

The event organisers told The Tab: “Last year a lot of people were disappointed by not getting a ticket so this year we’ve decided to go bigger and better. Our previous venue limited a lot of what we wanted to do but we’ve managed to source an incredible space this year.

“It’s a venue that’s hosted Sky Sports events, so people coming should expect a ridiculous evening. A lot of people last year loved the hype and the atmosphere that built before each fight so we’ve really tried to build on that this year.

“Think more fire, more CO2, bigger speakers, even more lighting, and even more booze thrown in there as well. All in all it’s just going to a bigger spectacle.”

The classy event will take place on the 4th March, at Rainton Meadows Arena, and tickets go on sale Friday. The Tab caught up with a few fighters:
