Royal Queensbury Challenge 2014

Australia’s premier, black-tie event, The Royal Queensbury Challenge, kicked off at Crown Perth on Friday, May 9th. The who’s who of WA congregated at the pyramid like structure on the banks of the Swan in support of local charity, Toybox International.

The Royal Queensbury Challenge sees 20 amateur boxers enter the ring, each for 3 rounds of blood, sweat and tears. Diverse IT sponsored Laura “the Explorer” O’Brien-Oxley who entered her bout the underdog against Jayde “Van Damme” Van Dijken.

With the crowd’s support spurring her on, Laura took the title in the bout dubbed “Fight of the Night” by the commentators.

Diverse IT entertained staff and clients at the hottest event on the Perth social calendar. With all the fun and flamboyance of fight-night in Vegas, The Royal Queensbury Challenge never fails to impress!
