Meat & Cleaver owner, Sam Fuller, will be taking part in an Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) event on the 18th September to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
On 18th September 2021, our very own Sam Fuller will be coming out swinging in aid of Cancer Research UK. Sam has accepted the challenge of an Ultra White Collar Boxing Match, held at Unit 7 Nightclub at the Festival Leisure Park, Pipps Hill Road North in Basildon all in aid of this worthy charity.
Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) are a corporate partner of Cancer Research UK and participants, like Sam, have helped to raise over £20 Million to help beat cancer sooner.
Like many, I have experienced the very sad and emotional effects of cancer, so I don’t need to preach to anybody how important this charity is.
My first, very real experience was seeing my grandmother first-hand suffering the effects of leukemia when I was younger, and the toll her passing had on our family. Now, I feel, is the time I can give something back!
Sam is now 14 weeks into training and has been in training since just after Christmas. After such a tough year for everyone, and after suffering a hand injury in the line of duty, Sam’s fighting spirit is driving him on.
Being a butcher, you might expect Sam to be practicing his punching on the slabs of meat in the meat locker, much like Rocky Balboa – but no. Our meat is tender enough at Meat & Cleaver and we’re also sure Sam won’t be trash-talking anyone ahead of his big fight.
This isn’t the first time Sam has boxed as he used to box as a youngster, but it was turning out to support his cousin’s fiance, Eddie last year in his UWCB bout that reignited Sam’s desire to step back into the ring.
Watching Eddie fight really made me want to get back into boxing whilst doing something for such a worthy charity as Cancer Research UK.
I injured my hand at work just before Christmas and a combination of that, and eating well over the festive period meant that I’d put on a few extra pounds. Since committing to UWCB I’ve really enjoyed training more than ever. I’ve now lost just under 6 kilos and I am feeling much better for it.
Cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last 40 years in the UK but there is still so much more to do. So please help by supporting Cancer Research UK – COVID-19 has slowed us down, but we will never stop.

Sam will be taking part in two one-hour training sessions each week at Lions Boxing & Fitness Gym on Reeds Farm Estate, Roxwell Road in Chelmsford.
Enjoy a fantastic evening of boxing and support our boxers who have trained hard for 8 weeks to step in the ring and raise money for charity.
Tickets for the event cost £25 and money for the sales will go to charity.
