KICKBOXING king Qasim Nisar will be taking on more than 50 opponents in a row to raise money for charity.

The two-times world champion will complete 100 rounds, each lasting two minutes. With only a minute’s respite between bouts, he expects to remain in the ring for five hours.

Qasim, from Sheldon, will be completing the mammoth match at the UKSA Centre, Sparkbrook.

He decided to hold the event after reading about the efforts of local boy Harry Moseley - recently dubbed Britain’s Kindest Kid, in a national competition.

The nine-year-old has now raised more than £10,000 for Brain Tumour UK and is pleased to have Qasim on board

Twenty-year-old Qasim, who studied at Solihull College, has been involved in the sport for ten years, battling his way to a black belt.

And he might not be the last famous face to support Harry’s campaign. The schoolboy has also written to Education Secretary Ed Balls, music supremo Simon Cowell and comedian Peter Kay.
