21 Feb Fight Night VI – Clash of the Codes
Muscle Up Charity Fight Night 6 – “The Real Code War”
There’s been plenty of talk lately about which football code is best. In Canberra, it’s league versus union, Raiders versus Brumbies.
The Muscle Up Charity Fight Night is going to settle this once and for all when Terry Campese steps into the ring to take on Ben Alexander.
We will sort out this code war once and for all, said Bill Baker, President of Capital Region Muscular Dystrophy which is holding Muscle Up Charity Fight Night 6 at the Hellenic Club, Woden on Saturday 8 August.
Terry Campese, Canberra Raiders Captain, State of Origin, Kangaroos, 139 games for the Raiders, and Ben Alexander, 154 games for the Brumbies, 72 Wallaby Caps will both make their boxing debut when they contest the Real Code War.
Alexander has stayed fit since retiring from Rugby and is sporting a slimline 100kg frame these days not unlike when he made his start with Uni-Norths Colts. He’s going to employ his fitness to outlast Campese. “Campo is rugby league and Queanbeyan tough and I’m just a soft North Shore private school boy who played rugby union so he will definitely start favourite” said Alexander.
Campese on the other hand describes Alexander as being intelligent, enigmatic and more strategic in his approach, “not unlike scrum rules in Union.”
The Muscle Up Charity Fight Night is the major fund raiser for Capital Region Muscular Dystrophy. This year we have teamed with Terry Campese and his Foundation to stage our biggest event yet. All proceeds from the evening will be shared between Capital Region Muscular Dystrophy and the Terry Campese Foundation.
Mr Baker confirmed the worst kept secret in Canberra when he announced the bout. We have been over run with demand for tables on the night. The Board of the Hellenic Club have generously donated their table for the night. It is the last ringside table and we have decided to auction it to give anyone interested a chance for the best table in the house. You can bid at Allbids.com.au. The auction will close on Friday the 13th of March.
More information will be available on the Muscle Up Charity Fight Night event page on Facebook.

The evening will also feature a strong card of high quality bouts with local and interstate boxing, dinner and drinks, raffles and a sporting memorabilia and general auction.
If you only ever go to one fight night, this is the one.
