Boxing fans will have been glued to the long-awaited fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury at the weekend.

With slightly less attention, but no less dedication, Lorna ‘Hurricane’ Hegarty was making her debut in the ring at a white-collar bout in Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

The legal executive, who works at Leicester firm Douglas Wemyss Solicitors, aims to raise £2,000 for Cancer Research UK from her three rounds.

Obiter went to press before Hegarty’s fight, but Hegarty was already planning to continue boxing in future. ‘It has been a very challenging time, especially to fit in the training between my personal and professional life, but it is for an excellent cause and this has been my motivation,’ she says.
