White Collar Boxing Wales was established in December 2018 by founder, Charlie Batt. Charlie had experienced other white collar boxing events and wanted to offer a new premium white collar boxing experience.
Due to personal experience as well as witnessing so many others struggles, Charlie decided that WCBW events would always be in aid of mental health charities. This is when he decided to partner with Mind and later some of their regional charities.
WCBW hosted their first show on 6th April 2019 at Vale Sports Arena to a sold-out crowd, raising over £8,000 for Mind. 2019 continued as a successful year with 2 more sold-out shows and over £25,000 raised for Mind and Merthyr and The Valleys Mind respectively.
In 2020, WCBW looked to have another huge year. Our show planned for March 2020 was on the brink of selling out when, unfortunately, it had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Since then due to ongoing restrictions, WCBW has been unable to host another event.
In 2021, due to coronavirus restrictions, WCBW was taken over by G.I Events Group. G.I Events Group promised to keep the same ethos as always held at WCBW with bigger and better shows. G.I Events Group are currently waiting for restrictions to be lifted to announce a jam packed 18 month calendar of events.
