Fight For Independence 9: Press Conference

Fight For Independence 9 press conference

The bright morning sun lit up The Roundhouse, home of Steam Whistle Pilsner, where a press conference took place for the May 2 charity boxing night called Fight For Independence 9. Those present were introduced to two brawny boxers who would challenge each other in front of the cameras: Pat Miller of Bimcor & Cam Heaps, co-founder of Steam Whistle.

These fine fellows will put up their dukes for charity, winning us over with their pugilistic prowess and big hearts to support the women and children of Nazareth House and Sick Kids Hospital’s Emergency Department.

And if that isn’t heroic enough, Cam even got to practice his right jab when he nabbed a thief in the act of pilfering a purse!
