A KIDDERMINSTER man has honoured a late boxing coach by taking on a charity mountain climb in his underwear. 

Ashley Green, aged 36, and a group of fellow climbers wanted to pay tribute to Martin Fox, known to many as 'Foxy', who suddenly died in February this year.

The 57-year-old father-of-four was a volunteer at Mikey's Boxing Gym, helping people improve both their physical and mental health.

Ashley has described Martin as a "great man" who "helped so many people".

Ashley pledged to climb up the Bochlwyd Horseshoe in Wales in his boxers if his fundraising target of £500 for mental health charity Mind was hit. 

Ashley said he and Martin were both "fitness friends," with Martin hoping to complete the climb this year. 

On Saturday (June 18), he ascended the Welsh mountain to complete the charity challenge. 

He has raised more than £1,000 through his JustGiving page.
