A MAN from Shafton has been busy training for a boxing match in aid of a charity close to his heart.

Gareth Hobson will be taking part in an Ultra White Collar Boxing match to raise money for Cancer Research.

The charity means a lot to him because his brother sadly died of cancer.

Gareth said: "I have a martial arts background but decided to do a boxing event because it is for a great cause."

The fight will be held in Wakefield later this year.
