20 fighters. 10 fights. All done for 20 worth causes.
Every year in Athens, the Bulldawg Brawl is held in downtown at The Hedges. Each contestant that participated in the event chose a cause that they wanted to raise money for, whether it’s for an international, local or a personal cause.
The Bulldawg Brawl was started for UGA HEROs which benefitted children infected and living with HIV/AIDs. But since then, it has grown to benefit other charities and causes.
Each matchup of fighters is assigned a “brawl code,” and the two fighters work together to sell as many tickets with their specific code as possible. For every ticket they sell, they get a percentage of the proceeds put into their “fight pot.” This “fight pot” is what the fighters are battling for. 70 percent goes towards the winner’s charity while the loser receives 30 percent.
The Hedges was packed with students, locals, friends and family members of the fighters. An electric atmosphere of “ooo’s” and “ahh’s” took the air as fighters took the ring. Attractive and class ring girls displayed the rounds, 2 hilarious hosts, and also another attractive woman interviewing the fighters before each fight.
One can’t beat going to a charity event and watching a boxing match. Entertaining and funny to say, especially when they aren’t trained boxers.
