Celebrity cage fighter Alex Reid is hosting a mixed martial arts masterclass in Ipswich next month to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The event, at Pipers Vale gymnastics club from 1pm on Sunday, October 8, has been organised by former European and world kickboxing champion Darren Summers, whose 16-year-old and seven-year-old children have the condition.

“He trained me for my first cage fight which I won in the first round,” said Mr Summers. “We wanted to do something for the Trust and this is our first event.

“You don’t have to be involved in martial arts to come along, it is for anyone of any age from any walk of life.

“Alex will also be talking about fitness, how to maintain your weight and what to eat, and will be answering questions afterwards too.”
