​Announcer punches station client in mouth

Radiowest announcers Jamie McDonald and Doug Terry stepped away from the mics on Saturday night and swapped their live read folders for boxing gloves to raise money for local charity, The Police Legacy fund. 
While Doug showed great skill punching one of the station’s advertisers in the face he lost on points.  Jamie McDonald hit the canvass completely unconscious halfway through his bout after taking a brutal left hook to the head. 
Long time announcer Cliff Reeve took his place as the ring announcer after training with boys for the past two months during which he was injured and not cleared to fight. 
Through their intense training Dougie went from reluctant participant to star pupil while Jamie lost ten kilograms and trained so hard on one occasion that he vomited in front of his fellow fighters. 
While the final total for money raised is still being calculated there are pats on the back all round with the end of a two month saga that included all the important elements for any good underdog story; blood, sweat and vomit.
