Journalist Nick Booth takes it on the chin – literally


I’m sure some PRs would dearly love to see certain journalists get a punch in the mouth – so you have to hand it to IT writer Nick Booth for volunteering to get beaten up in front of a paying audience. Albeit in the name of charity.

The fight took place last Thursday night at the Chiswell Street Brewery, EC1. I’d seen the rather amusing press release announcing the bout earlier in the week (the inaugural Computer Reseller News Fightnight, a night of white collar boxing – the mind boggles as to possible future combatants in the ring).

The bit I liked best was:

Astonishingly, a new survey says only 54 per cent of all PR people would pay good money to see a journalist beaten up. However, a further 46 per cent said they were pretty sure they would. But they’d have to check first, and would get an answer before the end of play. Or maybe Monday?

Anyway – view above for Nick’s valiant but ultimately doomed titanic battle with the Toshiba Titan, Jason Philips

  1. Hilarious. I wonder how many journalists would pay to see a PR person get beaten up?
