Ultra White Collar Boxing is a unique opportunity for people with no boxing background to experience the world of boxing, in a safe and enjoyable environment. Raise money for Cancer Research UK and get or stay in great shape!
Designated is proud to be sponsoring New Brighton local, Josh Sefton who is raising money for Cancer Research UK by competing this Saturday, 14th of April!
Elaine Owen, Managing Director at Designated said, “We are so pleased to be able to support Josh in his fundraising efforts. He’s a wonderful young man who I have known for many years. He’s raising money for a fantastic cause with his own blood, sweat, and tears. Literally!”
Designated’s very own Sheldon Evans managed to spend a few minutes with Josh this week as he trains hard for his fight on Saturday.
Sheldon: What has it been like prepping for a boxing fight and how are you feeling?
Josh: It’s been good and I'm feeling great and I'm also getting extra pad work in down at Pure Gym, it's helping with the fitness and motivation.
Can you tell us a bit about the charity you are representing and why did you get involved?
I lost my aunty and it got me to want to start doing things to help, and I was boxing when I was a kid and I have also raised over £1500 which is excellent, the charity name is Cancer Research UK.
What has it been like to see all the support you are getting?
The support is good. I have a table of 10, my friends, girlfriend, and dad are supporting me. They have all supported me through the 8 weeks of talking about salad and eggs so it will be good.
Why did you approach Designated?
I have been close to Elaine, her son Lewis, and the company my whole life. Elaine is like my second mum, I want to help her as much as she has helped me and I have the logo on the back of my vest and I hope this helps her too.
What has it been like to be sponsored by Designated?
It’s been good. It’s better with a sponsor and it’s more professional, and Elaine is a great woman and I am proud to be sponsored by her and Designated.
Would you like to fight again when this is done?
I want to come back out of retirement after this fight, I am enjoying it a lot. I’d love to do it again
Any final words?
My opponent didn't turn up so I think he is scared, this should be an easy win.

Josh, everyone here at Designated wishes you the absolute best of luck! Sock it to ‘em!
