All the money should always go to charity.

Id be up for going, but why is there no proper website for the event?

It's probably gonna be full of bellends in cheap suits. It saddens me that SRL would agree to some shit like this.

Stuff like cheap ass robes signed by the boxers which are worth pretty much **** all.

And to sum it up. Drinks are usually served at extortionate prices.

Events run by cowboys and rip off merchants that rub shoulders with the underworld and attended by wannabe hard men that think they can mix it with the best.

Mugs events.


Nice sum up my good man!

Smile Re: An evening with Sugar Ray Leonard! Message from organiser

Hi to everyone commenting on this post, I'm organising this event am not ripping people off or a gangster, I am hosting this event purely for these two sick children To raise money for their much needed operations, one being a relative off mine, there is no website as this is a one off event by me and would rather put the 1000 into creating a site into raising the money for these kids!

I myself have attended these events in the last 6-7 years and can see where people are coming from, I've felt disappointed many times, that's why I'm doing my own show, 100% of money will go in te children's funds, we have restricted. Numbers to allow everyone to actually meet all the boxers and make the night even more personal, pictures are 15 where we will earning 50% off that for the funds, we will have celebrity guests Jo have bought tickets such as Danielle Westbrook, steps, sheree Murphy and hopefully Coleen Rooney, we have free after party venue, a high quality 3 course meal, Kenny Thomas performing... My aim is to make this event unlike these other shows and give everyone a night they will enjoy and want to attend again,
So please before shouting about what this is like, don't tarnish all these shows with the same brush...
Anyone who's interested in the night can contact me on 07830178104 to discuss further and table and group discounts are available if you mention easy side boxing, many thanks

right mate I'll knock something together over the weekend, would you like the site to simply be called "Tough Talk Events" or "An Evening with Sugar Ray"? got any logos, posters or images you would like me to use? if there's an official press release, could I get that too? my e-mail is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] so send me any details. i remind you I just mean a basic site, but one that should be good enough to suit your needs. Been looking to sharpen the old webdesign skills and for a good cause like this I think its perfect.

A great cause and i aint knocking it but surely Kevin Mitchell wont be there a week before he fights for a world title?

On the subject of these do's they are only a rip off if you allow them to be. I have done 2 , Duran and Frazier and we had a great night both times. We had photo's with the fighters plus a few ex fighters turned up and mingled with everyone.
Anyone who's mad enough to bid for 'official merchandise' deserves to be ripped off. I know a guy who makes a living out of these events and he buys most of the gear he auctions on e-bay for **** all and then flogs it to pissed up wanna bee's at these events and makes a killing.

As long as a well known Peodophile called Lee Nightingale isn't involved, I don't see any reason not to go, that man will steal your money and your pants, dirty ****er.
