Boxing for Battens takes place this Saturday, August 14 at 2pm on top of Carrantouhill, Co Kerry.
The event is being organised by Dolphil Promotions in association with Betpack.com. The event sees Willie Big Bang Casey and Christina Lightening McMahon battle it out up Irelands highest peak.
Casey, who only last Saturday fought and beat Emiliano Salvini over 8 blistering rounds is delighted to be involved in this charity event.
Im delighted to be involved in this gig, its a great cause so we hope people get behind the event and support the charity. Battens is a terrible disease, I have four kids myself so when I was asked to help out I was delighted to do my bit.
RTE and TV3 will be covering the event and a section will go out in the 6 oclock news.
Willie continued there is something like three or four people in the whole country have this illness and two of them are Tony Heffernans kids. They need the money for treatment in the states so to everybody out there who can help- jump onto the internet and pledge money.
