The fourth annual Rumble in Red Deer will take place Nov. 16 in the Marquis Room at the Westerner.

There will be six white collar bouts and an equal number of contests involving several of the top amateur boxers in the province.

The Red Deer and District Boxing Club and their partner, the Red Deer Boxing Club, will put on the event, which is a major fund raiser for the clubs. A portion of the proceeds will also go to Kids For Cancer.

The boxing clubs are looking for local businessmen and women for the white collar portion of the event. They must be willing to spend 12 weeks in the gym learning how to box before showcasing their skills during the event.

All bouts will be sanctioned by Boxing Alberta and will be overseen by qualified officials and medical personnel. The white collar bouts will be judged by local celebrities.

Training of the athletes will take place at the Red Deer Boxing Club under the direction of qualified coaches, who will be available Monday through Thursday evenings. They will also be available at other times if required.
