Boxing stars are gathering in Wolverhampton on Saturday night to raise thousands of pounds for charity. The "King of the Ring" event, organised by the Punjabi Wolves Supporters group, is now in its' second year. Around fifteen hundred people are expected to attend.

Special guests at this year's event include Irish Heavyweight boxing star Joe Egan, undefeated former World Champion Joe Calzaghe and players from Wolves FC.

The twelve competitors taking part, who have never boxed before, have been involved in an extensive training programme to help get in shape for the fundraiser.

Last year's event raised more than ten thousand pounds. Six charities will benefit from this year's event, including Promise Dreams, Compton Hospice, MS Society, British Heart Foundation, India Project and Delete Blood Cancer.
