On an average day, you’ll find Nunzio securing loans for his clients, negotiating rates and navigating mountains of paperwork… but outside of work, things have looked a little bit differently lately.

After signing up for Corporate Fighter, a challenging 10 week boxing experience that ends with a once-in-a-lifetime fight night experience, Nunzio has been finishing work and donning his boxing gloves for an incredible cause – but we’ll let him tell you about it:

Why did you sign up for Corporate Fighter?

I signed up for Corporate Fighter because I wanted to challenge myself both physically and mentally while supporting a good cause. I had been following the program for a while and finally decided to put myself through the ultimate test of training like a professional fighter.

Which charity are you raising money for and why did you choose them?

I am raising funds for Will2Live whose mission is to provide the support and basic human needs to the marginalised and disenfranchised members of society. I chose this charity because in my view these people are fighting battles every day for basic human needs that we may take for granted, like food, water, and clothing. This resonated deeply with me, and I thought I would join them with that fight to make their day to day easier, be in their corner. This charity is making a tangible difference in people’s lives.

How have you been preparing for the final fight?

Preparing for the fight has not been as easy as I had imagined. With training 5 times per week, the coaches have been testing us every session, pushing us to our breaking point with a mix of strength training, cardio workouts and sparring sessions. But the preparation goes beyond the training itself, as I have been managing my diet to ensure I am in peak condition for the fight which has been one of my biggest challenges over the past 8 weeks.


How can people support you?

People can support me by donating to my fundraising efforts for Will2Live here. Every contribution, no matter how small, makes a meaningful impact towards helping those in need. Additionally, spreading the word about the event and sharing my fundraising page with friends and family can also help garner support. As an added bonus, if you have the means to donate $20, you will receive a livestream link of the event on the night of the fight to your email where you can not only watch my fight, but all the fighters who are also raising money for great causes.

How did you choose your fighter name, The Assasin?

I chose “The Assassin” as my fighter name because to me it embodies the determination and focus required to step into the ring. The name reflects my mindset of pushing forward relentlessly towards my goals, both inside and outside of the ring.

What’s one thing you’ve learnt whilst training for Corporate Fighter?

One thing I’ve learned while training for Corporate Fighter is the importance of discipline and consistency. It’s not just about the physical aspect of training; it’s also about mental resilience and staying committed to the process, even when faced with challenges or setbacks. Training for this event has taught me valuable lessons about perseverance and pushing past my limits even when every part of you is telling to stop.

You can support Nunzio by donating here. The night will also be live streamed for supporters on the night so you can watch Nunzio battle it out during fight night. The whole Sanford Finance team will be attending the black tie event and we can’t wait to see how Nunzio’s hard work pays off.
