Paddy Barnes [1(0)-0] is well-known for giving plenty of his time to a number of charities.
Now the Cliftonville flyweight has made a fantastic gesture, at his own expense, that will make thousands of pounds for worthy causes over the next few years.
Barnes this evening announced that, from now on, he will donate any commission he makes on ticket sales to charity.
The Belfast man explained that the customary 10% commission on ticket sales that he would be in line to receive will now be donated to a different charity for each fight.
The first charity in line to receive this windfall, for Barnes’ fight at the Waterfront Hall on February 18th, will be the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
Barnes still has tickets remaining for the Jamie Conlan-headlined card.
£40 = 22 tickets left
£60 = 45 tickets left
£80 = 10 tickets left
£100 = 32 tickets left
£150 = 7 tickets left
