The much-anticipated media and marketing industry event of the year, Pitch2Punch, is returning for its seventh year in 2019!
Following the 2018 sell out event, Kreate will step back into the ring to produce the industry night of nights, with the live event set to take place on the 1st November 2019 at Royal Randwick Ballroom.
Kreate’s Rich Jones, will continue his role as fight promoter and matchmaker.
Jones said: “2018 was a huge year for Pitch2Punch, we had a new charity partner and Kreate came on board as event producers culminating in another sell out event.
“The 20 fighters who joined the program were incredible, they became a solid group of mates with everyone giving 110 per cent right through.
“It’s great to see some of them still training at the gym and still talking about their Pitch2Punch journey.
“We’re excited to see who steps up for 2019’s event.”
The organisers are now putting the call out for participants from across Sydney’s media, marketing and advertising industries to pick up the gloves and sign up for 2019’s Pitch2Punch – a challenging 11-week program of intensive boxing training ending in a 3-round amateur boxing bout at a prestigious black-tie gala event.
Training, hosted by Bondi Junction’s premium Muay Thai and boxing gym 8Limbs, will kick off on the 18th August and this year’s charity gala will take place on the 1st November 2019 at the Royal Randwick Ballroom.
Since the first champions stepped into the ring, Pitch2Punch has successfully donated over $160,000 to its charity partners, helping raise awareness of anxiety and depression while entertaining over 3,700 guests.
