Tough blusterers

Lawyers of all shapes and sizes featured prominently on the bill of the Marriott Grosvenor White-Collar Boxing Championship last week. 20 Essex Court clerk Arron Zitver took on Richard ‘Rough Justice’ Williams, Investec Trust’s head of legal, in an evenly-matched battle. Both did better than Manches partner Sloane Kelly, who was knocked out in the first round by Peter ‘a bit of a hard b@stard’ Knight of Novus Capital.

Zitver’s boss, senior clerk Brian ‘Rocky’ Lee, put in a Tyson-esque performance against a London cabbie, who was sneaked on to the bill after Lee’s original opponent chickened out. Apparently, he’d heard about Lee’s rib-breaking antics in training. Ouch!
