A chance to witness Anthony Joshua’s first fight on American soil is topping the bill at a global online auction that has raised more than £1 million since its inception.
The Ultimate Charity Auction, which is now live and runs until Thursday 11th April, has once again brought together some of the biggest names in sport to offer a glittering array of money-can’t-buy experiences.
One lucky bidder and a guest could be taking their seat to witness Joshua take on Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden in a star-studded auction prize, which also includes flights, accommodation and boxing gloves personally signed by the current IBF, WBA and WBO Heavyweight Champion of the World.
Fight fans can also bid on Ricky Hatton MBE’s signed boxing gloves after The Hitman once again lent his support to the auction.
The Ultimate Charity Auction has raised more than £1 million for national and local charities since its inception after attracting glittering prizes from household names in sport, celebrity and lifestyle.
This year, the beneficiaries will be the League Managers Association Charity – In The Game, and the GeeWizz charitable foundation, headed by veteran fundraiser and auction founder Gina Long MBE.
GeeWizz provides specialist equipment to children and young adults up to the age of 21, living in Suffolk and Norfolk, with life-threatening conditions, disability or cancer.
Gina said: “The Ultimate Charity Auction has always captured the imagination of both donors and those bidding on the fantastic money-can’t-buy prizes.
“But this year’s auction is the biggest and best yet with a glittering array or prizes from the world of sport, celebrity and lifestyle.
“We are humbled to have such a star-studded list of auction prizes which we hope will raise an incredible sum of money and make a huge difference to the lives of the people we support.”
