Paddy Barnes v Stevo Timothy boxing spectacular

Paddy Barnes v Stevo Timothy in the biggest boxing extravaganza the world has ever seen in aid of the Irish Wheelchair Association 

Please support our cause if you can and please share

I know it sounds insane but please hear me out:
You may remember I did a charity cycle last year and raised over 63 thousand despite having incomplete paraplegia.
This time around it's even more extreme.
If you don't know already myself and Paddy Barnes are planning to do something that as far as I know has never been done before. An Olympic Winner v a completely amateur wheelchair user. Paddy is going to get into a wheelchair for a charity fight with me.

It may seem like a completely lunatic move but as usual there's method in the madness. 
For Paddy it'll be an opportunity to experience what it's like in a wheelchair albeit if only for a short time. It'll give me the opportunity to prove that wheelchair users can do anything they set their minds to and to break the stereotype of the wheelchair user as helpless and deserving of pity.
We are hoping to raise as much as possible for the Irish Wheelchair Association.
We'd love your support and help us raise as much awareness as possible through social media and traditional media.
If you know anyone who you might think would be interested in covering this story please let me know.

Once again thank you for your support and let's do this! Let's raise as much as we possibly can.
