In Preston they put kids in a cage to do it, but here in Leeds we know how to put on a proper fight. Tonight’s the night when 10 members of the Leeds Restructuring and Insolvency Community take to the ring to knock six bells out of each other in front of tables of diners.
It’s what they call white collar boxing and it’s going to be “Leeds most talked about event of 2011”, the organisers say.
It’s probably sold out already, but tickets for a table for 10 at the black-tie charity event being held in the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds, go for £750, with the proceeds going to Martin’s House children’s hospice.
“Don’t miss your chance, whilst you wine and dine your guests, to watch Leeds finest go toe-to-toe in the ultimate corporate challenge,” says the blurb for the event organised by international law firm Squire Sanders Hammonds.
Looking forward already to the BBC Radio Leeds phone-in: “Is our society morally bankrupt (geddit?)? Have your say!”
