Micky Hazard, who attended the event, extended his thanks to Paul and the team, saying, “What an incredible night it was. So much enthusiasm, laughter, and generosity.

“As a new charity, this is an astonishing amount to help us accelerate our efforts to date. I’d also like to give a special mention of the Shamplina family who were a joy to work with, nothing was too much trouble and because of them we are able to order another 10 benches.”

Rumble with The Agents was set up by Shamplina after he recognised the “perfect synergy” between the competitive spirit of property professionals and the exhilaration of boxing.

“Knowing how competitive agents would be, I knew the idea would be met with keen interest; and here we are nine years later, having raised nearly £170,000 for charity,” says Shamplina.

The Landlord Action founder is also planning an extra special event in June next year to celebrate 10 years of Rumble with The Agents with the goal of surpassing £200,000 in total fundraising.
