Due to take place on Thursday 26th May at the Brewery in central London, the event is now in its ninth year and has raised over £180,000 for charity since it first started in 2008.

Every year the event reaches it's full capacity, where over 500 industry professionals come together to support their ultimate fighters, whilst at the same time raising money for their chosen charities.

This year after a very intense selection process we have our Print Specialist Account Manager Scott Nelson representing Westcoast who couldn't be more thrilled to take part in such an exciting event.

So of course.. in prep for the big fight there were some questions we were very eager to ask him...

Why did you decide to take part in CRN Fight Night 2016?
Office banter from my colleagues persuaded me to put myself forward!

How are you finding the training, is it intense?
Wow! hardest thing I’ve ever done, I threw up after the 1st 2 sessions!!

What strengths do you think you will be bringing to the fight?
Hopefully some good boxing skills will make the fight exciting!

What charity have you chosen to support and why?
I will be raising money for the NSPCC, because a lot of my family and friends around me have children and EVERY person deserves the same chance in life!

Why did you choose your boxing 'alter ego'  name?
It was a name I was called by colleagues, so it just stuck with me!

How do you see the fight panning out?
Into a 2 minute brawl with last man standing

Lastly.. Have you got any final words for your opponent?
haha, hope he’s ready to take a beating!

Scott will be fighting on the 26th of May at the Brewery in Chiswell Street,Central London.
