Operations Manager Vicky Roberts is no stranger to challenge, working in the security industry and volunteering her time as a firefighter with the Governors Bay Brigade. Her intensive training under renowned trainer, himself a pro boxer, Nort Beauchamp will be sure to provide one heck of a fight as she squares up against Kimberley this November!

Office Manager Kimberley Rose is a dedicated mother who is also a hardworking member of the HighFly Roofing team. With some previous experience in martial arts, Kimberley has a solid foundation - but boxing is new to her as she enters the ring for her first formal fight. Working hard with Fitzy at Ara Institute of Canterbury, this fiery young woman has passion to burn!
Starting his boxing career innocently enough as an opportunity to improve his fitness with friends, it wasn't long before Kane was taking the ring for club bouts. The ambitious Site Engineer, not yet satisfied with his mounting record, decided Aragorn would be his next target. With a spring in his step and determination to boot, this Taupo-bred contender is always looking to challenge himself, and taking on the tallest contender on the card didn't seem to phase Rugby-mad Kane
No stranger to taking knocks in this arena, Chris is already 2 from 2 in the Fight For Christchurch event series and he'll be damned if he goes down to the likes of James. Punching his way through one of the stand out matches of 2017, and fighting more since then as well, Chris will be a force to be reckoned with come November 3rd.
James is looking for a challenge and is here to support a great cause. With three corporate bouts under his belt, he's known for lighting the ring on fire. Backing down is not in his vocabulary, so Chris had better prepare to last the distance!
Leroy is certainly no beginner - he's a club bout veteran, and his experience in the ring will surely prove influential in one of the toughest matches to call on the card! He's a late addition to the OneStaff Fight For Christchurch line up, but his training has been anything but delayed. He's aiming to put Quintin back in his place in a bout you do not want to miss!
We are looking for contenders for Fight for Christchurch 2019.
Our Contender card for 2018 is now full. However we are taking registrations for Expressions of Interest to be a Contender in 2019. This is not for the faint hearted and is an experience that will challenge you more than ever. Our contenders are trained by the best boxing coaches around including: Bryan Barry and Garey Burgess (Round 12), Brad Milner (BSM Health and Fitness), Paul Fitzy Fitzsimons (Fitz Boxing), Nort Beauchamp (1 More Round), Dave Mather and Wayne Vaega.
Training will start 12 weeks out from the event and our coaches will teach you the art of boxing. And as they say “no pain, no gain”. It will be tough!
You will need to be sponsored into the event by the company you own or work for. Previous companies have experienced an event that provided amazing team spirit getting behind and supporting their contender. Making it a “team” effort supporting your contender will galvanise and unite the team providing a unique team building experience. It’s also a night out the team will never forget!
We will assess all applications and suitability to the event. We only want people who are 110% committed. Unfortunately we cannot take everyone.

All our contenders must also commit to raising funds for our recipient charities. We have the systems and processes in place to assist with this.
