Neil Huntley, a boxer from Ashfield has organised a charity match to raise money for Myah Hauxwell, 3.

Myah was born with a rare genetic condition called micropthamia - small eye syndrome - which meant her right eye never developed and she was born without one.

Last year she was given a new lease of life thanks to big-hearted fundraisers who raised £4,000 to buy her a new prosthesis.

But the new eye was too heavy and her face was becoming deformed by the weight.

Appeal for brave Myah
Myah's mum, Lauren Hauxwell, launched a £5,500 appeal to pay for a new prosthetic eye to be made and any further treatment she may require.

Neil, along with MMA fighter Mickael Oduba will be raising money for Myah with a charity night which will feature several MMA and boxing matches.

Neil, who runs Revolution Fitness on Redcliffe Street, Sutton, has had a successful career in boxing, and won his last fight against Luke Atkins at the Cruiserweight British title main event on July 14.

Neil has used his boxing talents to raise money for many other charities before, including for Dawson Wilcock, who suffered from Hepatoblastoma.

The Ring Warriors 4 event will take place at Mansfield Rugby Club on October 28, and tickets will be available from August 8.
