Two contenders but only one CRN Fight Night Champion
Trustmarque had two team members competing at the charity event. Alongside Paul, our fearless Account Manager Lewis ‘Foxy Mc Fox Face’ Fox was on the attack, seeing it through to the third round before being defeated by Ben Lang.
Chloe Craughan, Head of Marketing at Trustmarque, who was at the competition cheering on our IT heavyweights with other Trustmarque colleagues said it was an extremely close call.
“It was the closest fight of the night. Lewis did the full three rounds and it was neck and neck all the way. I think if he’d had 30 seconds more then he might have won. He did an amazing job and we were all very proud,” she commented.
“I think I boxed to the best of my ability,” agreed Lewis.” I didn’t win, but to be fair the other guy was better so he deserved to win. I don’t think I could have done anything differently. I gave it my all and it was a great experience.”
Lewis said that he had a weird sensation being in the ring where “literally nothing” was going through his mind. He said the adrenaline made him very focused on just facing the man in front of him and blocking out all the external noise.
Asked whether they will be continuing with competitive boxing, the pair both said it is unlikely. While Lewis wants to continue the boxing training without the competitions, Paul said he will definitely not be fighting again as his wife won’t let him.
