The Great Racing Welfare Showdown – Cancelled

We are really disappointed to announce that The Great Racing Welfare Showdown planned for 17th June is being cancelled. In light of a recent incident at a similar boxing event, we need time to review the outcomes of the investigation.

We’d like to thank all those who signed up to take part and bought tickets. Events like these help us to raise vital funds so that we can be there for racing’s people when they need us and we hope that you will continue to support the charity by attending our other events across the year.

The Great Racing Welfare Showdown is an exclusive evening of open-air boxing in the Rowley Mile parade ring.  This flagship fundraising event will take place on Saturday 17th June at Newmarket’s famous racecourse and is organised by, and raises funds for, Racing Welfare.

The competition will see 22 fairly matched participants box three x two-minute bouts on the night. All participants must work in the horseracing industry and will include some celebrity bouts.
