United Boxing Club (UBC) continues to prove that it is much more than a boxing club. On September 7, 2017, UBC hosted the Melee V Gala Event at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre, raising over $40,000 for its charity of choice – Variety, The Children's Charity. Melee V was a total sell out and, as you will see, featured very exciting bouts from the UBC Corporate Challenge participants and from the national boxing teams (Team Canada and Team Mexico). The Corporate Challenge participants dedicated 12 hard weeks of intense training in order to learn the art of boxing, get in shape and prepare for competition. Thank you to all of the Corporate Challenge participants, who collectively raised over $20,000 for the charity. The UBC Melee Gala is a unique event that continues to grow in popularity and importance.
