GamblingTV will broadcast this Friday’s inaugural SBC Charity Boxing Championship, as some of the industry’s heavy-hitters lace up the gloves in an action-packed evening of entertainment.
With the spectacular Hilton on Park Lane in London providing the setting, a total of six bouts will take place as some of the key figures from betting and gaming unite to raise money for Oliver’s Wish Foundation.
With the opening bell set for 9pm, all the action can be seen live on GamblingTV as 12 combatants from the industry look to put months of blood, sweat and tears into fruition, as they go to battle in front of a capacity crowd.
The stars will also be out for the black tie event as former England and British Lions rugby star and TV personality James Haskell takes up hosting duties alongside Sky F1’s Natalie Pinkham.
The line-up features:
- Leon Thomas (Managing Director and Group Strategy, Entain) v Nick Wright (SVP Business Development, Interactive at Bally’s Corporation)
- Mark Woollard (Managing Director, Banijay Brands) v Rokas Daugirdas (Compliance Manager, BetGames)

Daniel Beard, one of the boxers and a driving force behind the Championship, said: “Oliver’s Wish Foundation continues to be a cause very close to my heart, and I wanted to do something special and innovative to help it raise funds.”
“Our original effort to run this event was for April 2020, but unfortunately, COVID-19 got in the way, so we are absolutely delighted to be able to re-launch the first-ever industry white collar boxing event. The large majority of boxers are still up for the challenge, and we are excited to put on an exhilarating fight night.”
“The generosity of the industry was staggering previously, with people and companies contributing their time to help organise the event, so we hope for the continued support this time round by sponsoring the Championship or buying tickets. Between them, they will raise a fantastic sum for three very important charities.”
