Boston, MA – Everyday individuals will transform into fighters with a shared goal of knocking out cancer in Haymakers for Hope’s tenth annual “Belles of the Brawl” all women’s charity boxing event at the cutting edge MGM Music Hall at Fenway for the second year in a row. Tickets are now on sale for the event, with doors opening at 6:30pm and fights beginning at 7:30 pm on Thursday, October 12, 2023.
This month, thirty-two brave women living and working in the Greater Boston area will compete in boxing matches throughout the night, against equally skilled opponents to help raise money for cancer research, awareness, survivorship, and care. In preparation for the big event, each fighter is strategically paired with a boxing gym and coach to guide them through the vigorous four-month training cycle. All participants train individually and within small, intimate groups, learning the fundamentals of the sweet science, while creating lasting bonds with their trainers and Haymakers for Hope colleagues. Haymakers for Hope is much more than a cancer fundraiser.
Since its initial event in 2011, Haymakers for Hope has raised more than $25 million for cancer research, awareness, survivorship, and care. The organization has transformed more than 1200 ordinary participants into extraordinary amateur fighters. The women gearing up for their boxing debut at this year’s “Belles of the Brawl,” have raised over $400,000 and counting!
“This year marks the decennial anniversary for our beloved Belles of the Brawl event, bringing hundreds of women together to make a difference in surrounding communities,” said Co-Founder Andrew Myerson. “As we continue our growth nationwide, it’s a special experience to see our organization’s earliest events hit major milestones like this one, especially in our home base.”
Haymakers for Hope “Belles of the Brawl” fights are scheduled for three, two-minute rounds, and the entire boxing card is sanctioned by USA Boxing. General admission tickets are $85 and are available for purchase at www.haymakersforhope.org. In addition to the boxing events, Haymakers received charity bibs for five major road races across the globe, added charitable golf tournaments in Boston and Denver, and hosted its annual Sucker Punch Plunge to raise additional funds aimed towards knocking out cancer.
