CRN Fight Night is back and Westcoast is still fighting fit

By Sian Walsh

It's nearly that that time of year again. Time to put on our boxing gloves, dig out the foam fingers and look forward to one of the best channel nights out in the industry, watching 10 of the channel's bravest contenders battle it out in the boxing ring all for their chosen charity.

Is it just me or does it feels like the buzz from CRN Fight Night 2016 is still ringing in everyone's ears and now... it's creeping up like there's no tomorrow! - Seriously where did those last 10 months go.

The event is a sell out every year. Hundreds of industry professionals come together to watch the action live from the ringside. Now fast approaching its 10th anniversary CRN has raised over £200,000 for charity since it first launched.

Westcoast isn't one to shy away from the ring and have participated in
the event many times over the years all for a great cause.

Last year Print Account Manager Scott 'The Admiral' Nelson bravely stepped into the ring raising an incredible £2,500 for his chosen charity the NSPCC.

This year were back and will be fighting fitter than ever with our first female fighter...

Meet Paula 'Cast Iron' Kastrouni'

Don't let that innocent face fool you... Paula one of our Sales Account Managers is the first female to fight for Westcoast and is determined to bag Westcoast it's first winning belt! 

Paula is the youngest in the competition and see's this as huge opportunity against her opponent. Committing herself to three months of intensive, professional training Paula has no fear and is fully prepared for the blood, sweat and tears that she may entail along the way.

Those of you who know Paula, know that this is completely out of her comfort zone but in her own words 'she is absolutely buzzing for it!'

Paula is raising money for the British Heart Foundation a cause that is very close to her heart (excuse the pun) and would be grateful for any donations big or small.

We will be following Paula along her journey to becoming the ultimate female boxing champ so keep a look out for our upcoming posts.
