While the sporting event itself is in Mississauga in September, the opening card will be hosted in Hess Village later next week. Boxing matches are known for two things. The fight itself and the lovely ring girls that appear between rounds.

Hush Hess Village, which opened in May 2012, will be hosing the competition to choose the ring girl on Sunday August 5th. Dubbed the Ms Knockout Ring Girl Competition, the winner will take part in Full Throttle in September.

United Promotions will be returning to the Hershey Centre in Mississauga for their Full Throttle boxing event on September 8th. This will be the second card to be held at the Hershey Centre in the past few months with the last event back in May. That card featured seven bouts to a near capacity crowd.

The one day ring girl competition at Hush is open to all women over nineteen years of age, though any potential contestants are warned that outfits chosen should not be risqué and must be family friendly. The contest, just as the boxing event itself, is considered to be a PG-13 event.

The boxing event will also be televised.

Hush’s competition is being headed up by local talent Bobby Gino. Gino has been on a few different comedy tours and has performed stand-up comedy at the Visolounge and Casbah in Hamilton. Gino is a member of ComedyLounge.ca and hopes to start up an open mic night at Hush in the near future.

“I had a team of girls in the first United Promotions ring girl contest,” Hush organizer Bobby Gino shared, “The majority of the girls I picked were in the top eight to be the ultimate queen of the ring.”

Kristie Taylor, also from Hamilton, won that contest back in April.

Gino knew some of the people inside United Promotions and they offered him the chance to take over the ring girls contest in Hamilton.

“They knew that I could bring this to Hamilton and make it a really fun party and success.”

“They’re ultimately looking for a new group of girls to be ring girls and part of the United Promotions team.”

The top girl chosen in the contest will be the United Promotions ring girl for all of the fights. She will win a bar prize and will be featured as Ms Knockout in their fight magazine.

Tickets for Full Throttle are now on sale at the Hershey Centre box office or on Ticketmaster. The main event features the undefeated Denton Daley from Brampton taking on Kitchener’s Jason Douglas. Steve Wilcox, a fighter from Hamilton with a 2-0 record, will also compete at the September 8th event.
