The countdown is on for one of Boston's most loved fundraisers, Battle at the Bay. Now in it's fourth year, the charity boxing show has become a firm favorite in the annual Boston Irish calendar. Members of the Irish community in the Greater Boston area will step into the ring on March 28 to raise monies for local cancer foundation, Let's Stop Cancer.
The volunteer boxers who have no previous boxing experience have been attending twice-weekly training sessions at TNT Boxing Club, Braintree to prepare for their debut at the Dorchester Armory this March. This year's line-up features competitors from all across Ireland including boxers from Donegal, Waterford, Dublin, and Cork; as well as local boxers from Hyde Park, Quincy and Falmouth.
The event will be held on Saturday March 28 at 7.00PM at Dorchester Armory, 70 Victory Rd, Boston. Tickets are now available with a suggested donation of $25.
