A REDDITCH estate agent will be stepping into the ring, not a property, for a charity boxing match.

And despite having never boxed before Joe Phillips, branch partner at AP Morgan in Church Green, says he is looking forward to it.

The match is at Perdiswell Leisure Centre in Worcester and money raised will go to Cancer Research UK.

Joe said: "I’ve decided to do this in the memory of my father Steven Phillips who sadly died from cancer in 2015 and my mother Mandy Payne who is currently having ongoing treatment for breast cancer that she has had twice now."

He admitted: "I’ve never boxed before but I’m really excited and very much looking forward to it.

"I can’t say I’m not nervous as I’ve never done anything like this before."

The Bromsgrove resident is trying to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.
