I have seen many of these and either can be fun - intense and competitive or friendly and languid with a bit of showboating and clowning. The worst ones though, are where one guy is out there to move around and make some money for charity and the other is out to knock his head off. It can get uncomfortable. In my first white collar match I stopped my opponent kind of brutally. At the time I felt like Maximus in the freaking coliseum but as time goes on I realised there's a decent chance he just wasn't in the same headspace as me. It's a matter of regret these days, to be honest. I wish I'd talk to him beforehand and either said "Let's take it easy, mate, and have some fun" or "Don't hold back on my account, I'm up for it and I hope you are too".
Either way, best of luck and good for you raising some money.
