Tens of millions tuned in around the world to watch one of boxing’s all-time greatest pugilists (Floyd Mayweather), go head-to-head with one of UFC’s best fighters (Conor McGregor).  One thing that this weekends “Money Fight” proved, unequivocally, is just how entertaining boxing is to everyone!

Nearly one hundred exhibitors were out this weekend at the inaugural Fantasy Sports Show, while the world got ready to watch one of the biggest fights in history.  The best in their fields were out at the show, including The Fantasy Footballers, PlayLine, Archers Arena and The Toronto Argos, to name just a few.  Guests had the opportunity to explore everything from virtual reality, to learning the ins and outs of drafting your own football team.

Fight To End Cancer has taken the “Average Joe” and turned them into a super athlete since 2012.  The FTEC team ensures they are ready to compete in, arguably, the most physically gruelling sport in the world.  Over sixty men and women have traded the boardroom for the boxing gym,  laced up and stepped into the ring for a sanctioned Olympic style boxing match.  Partnering with The Fantasy Sports Show was perfect timing as we begin to narrow in on our next ten heroes looking to, literally, Fight To End Cancer.

Mikey Singer, Fantasy Sport Show Founder, was one of our first candidates interested in joining the fight.  He showed some incredible skill after his first lesson with FTEC Founder, Jennifer Huggins and Mikey’s chances are looking good for making it onto the FTEC2018 Fight Team.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mikey and his team at The Fantasy Sports Show for going above and beyond for everyone, and for helping us to raise funds and awareness for our fight!
