On the 27th May 2017 McGregor Boyall’s Simon Ranahan will be stepping into the Ring to take part in the Ringstar Corporate Boxing Championship, part of the international Boxing Event “The Roar of Singapore II.”
As well as featuring a full Professional Card, including 4 UBO World Title Fights, 2 Intercontinental Titles and 4 Regional Titles, the Roar of Singapore provides the people of Singapore and neighbouring countries with the opportunity to step into the ring and experience what it is like to fight on a world class professional championship boxing card!
McGregor Boyall’s very own Simon Ranahan has stepped up to the challenge and will be heading to the ring for one night only! Simon boxed at a few local clubs in Bristol as a youngster but never really took it that seriously. When he moved to Sydney in 2003 he joined a Boxing and Muay Thai Club called the Black Belt Pro, where he boxed for fitness and conditioning.
However, aside from a few sparring sessions he has never seriously stepped into the ring. Until now!
The Roar of Singapore is about bringing the boxing community together for one amazing event, with Corporate, Amateur and Professional Fighters all competing on the same card. So, when one of the corporate heavyweights had to drop out and Simon was asked if he wanted to take part – how could he possibly refuse?!
He has spent nearly three months getting into the shape of his life, training for up to 3 hours a day at the Spartans Boxing Club in Singapore, whilst also juggling a demanding job and busy family life. According to Simon the Club “is an amazing place that welcomes everyone and has taken him from a near couch potato to someone ready for a competitive boxing match in just 10 weeks!”
Simon will be fighting Markus Kraft, a shipping and logistics professional who has been boxing for the last year or so. Let’s see who comes out on top!
The Roar of Singapore is hosted by Resorts World Sentosa, giving the fighters and fans the real Las Vegas atmosphere. The Event will be broadcast to over 100 million people across South East Asia and selected countries in the APAC Regions, and will be feature in a 6-episode Sports TV Series on the Eleven Sports Network.
Good luck Simon!
