Tim Tszyu to Honour Dwight Ritchie in the Ring

This Friday, 6th December 2019 will see Tim Tszyu re-enter the ring for his highly publicised fight with Jack Brubaker. This follows Tim’s most recent fight against Dwight Ritchie, who recently tragically passed away during a sparring session.

Team Tszyu 2 will be honouring Dwight Ritchie and his family this Friday in the ring, with live and silent auctions taking place at the event, in the ring, in an initiative to raise money for the Dwight Ritchie family fund.

“As a community we are all still reeling from the loss of Dwight Ritchie. It’s hard to believe that just three short months ago, we were preparing for our own fight and now he is no longer with us,” says Tim Tszyu.

“I’m proud to be a part of the Boxing family that looks out for our own, and raising funds this Friday for the Dwight Ritchie Family Fund is a huge part of that. All profits raised from the silent and live auction, which will take place on Friday night, will support his family who is going through a very tough time and only has more to come,” commented Tszyu.

Helping Hand Group to facilitate the fundraising auction

Attendees will have the opportunity to bid for items supplied by fundraising auction facilitators Helping Hand Group, including an exclusive Boxing session with Tim Tszyu, signed prints of Kostya and Tim Tszyu and a boxing glove signed by five world champions including Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Larry Holmes and Ken Norton.

In addition, there will be a range of experiences, holidays and signed memorabilia from music legends and sporting heroes.

“At Helping Hand Group we have helped a range of charities, organisations and groups raise more than $110 million over the past two decades. We are putting our energy behind supporting Tim Tszyu and the Australian Boxing community who have been left devastated by the loss of Dwight Ritchie earlier this year,” says Richard Ernster, Director of Helping Hand Group.

“Helping Hand Group has been long-time supporters of the Boxing community in Australia, and particularly of the Tszyu family with a relationship which has spanned many years. Not only will we be running a live and silent auction on Friday night to raise funds for the Dwight Ritchie Family Fund, I’m proud to announce Helping Hand Group will match dollar for dollar the amount that is raised from the silent auction,” says Ernster.

“I encourage everybody to give deeply and generously and show their support for Dwight’s family who have experienced such a tragic loss,” concluded Tszyu.

Event: Jonesy Youth Foundation Gala Dinner

We are delighted to announce that on the 28th of October, we will be out in Auckland lending a helping hand at the Jonesy Youth Foundation Gala Dinner – Supporting Gabby to Walk Again.

Info from the event organising team:

This year’s Gala Dinner is on the 28th October at Eden Park. Our guest speaker is Sky Sports presenter Mel Robinson who will be talking about leadership in sport for women, plus three exciting mystery guests.

This year we are supporting Gabby “G Dub” Wright to walk again. In June 2016 Gabby was a healthy teenage girl playing netball and felt a cold coming on and 2 weeks later she was paralysed from the waist down and now has a medical condition called Transverse Myelitis.

Gabby would love to be playing netball in 2019 as netball is her life as all she has ever wanted to do is be a silver fern. It would be great to have you attend our main fundraiser event of the year and tickets are now available to purchase for $150.00 each or $1500.00 a table.
