Among those attending the training session and available for media will be the opponents of the Main Event bout of the Fight to End Cancer: undefeated Kingsway Boxing Club #1 Virgil Barrow and Andreas Tsagaralis, owner of the well-known Caffe Demetre in the Kingsway.

As the fighters’ June 9 showdown draws near, the intensity is building to an explosive evening. The night will also feature 5 other bouts, including an amateur female matchup representing Olympic Boxing.

Drawing wide support from local businesses and the public, FTEC is an upcoming June 9 Gala event at Woodbine Racetrack featuring amateur boxing matches, fine dining, and a wealth of entertainment in support of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
