The third annual Aprons for Gloves restaurant rumble fundraiser boxing match is coming up tomorrow with the city's baristas, bartenders and cooks battling it out to raise funds for at-risk women and youths in the DTES. The current - and only - two time Women's Lightweight champ, Sugar Shay has dropped out of this year's fight.

It was a devastating decision to make, as Aprons For Gloves means the absolute world to me. But I have decided to give up my belt and come back next year when my health and fitness is better. I have been having troubles with asthma and it is best I sit this one out. I do still have a fundraiser page but I would rather direct people to the other fighters who are still need to meet their $2000 goal. Find them under "contenders" on the website.
