Getting Back to Competition

11th Dec, 2020

I am really hopeful that the Covid Restrictions will be lifted soon and we will be able to compete again. I have been ticking over in the gym and at home to keep my fitness up but there is nothing like being able to compete. When we are fully back I will be concentrating on getting selected for England at the World Youth Games, which have been rescheduled for April. I was gutted that after being selected for England for Euros, the competition got cancelled due to Covid. Fingers crossed the Worlds will go ahead!

Funding for Club

1st May, 2020

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Leicestershire & Rutland Sport (LRS), for not only supporting me with the Go Gold Fund but also the my boxing club Braunstone Golden Gloves for the grant of £2262. Without the support of organisations like this we might not have had a gym to go back too, this money will help sustain us through the COVID-19 closure period, and put is in a good position when we reopen and get back to doing what we love.

I recently boxed in the youth championship finals and won on a unanimous decision making it my 4th national title and A week after the championships I had a European selection where we sparred all day and had to fight for a place I recently got the letter back saying I'd been picked to go to the Europeans in April in Montenegro and I then had a camp where the 6 weeks hard training began which was the following week at Tamworth where they made us work hard with lots off cardio it was just the European team but unfortunately it has been postponed to may due to the corona virus. because of this corona virus all the gyms have shut but I've been ticking over doing my own little work outs each day and running keeping my fitness up and hopefully the Europeans go ahead in may.

25th Feb, 2020

I've Been preparing the last few months for the youth championships. running up too these championships I have been training really hard running 3 times a week and training 6 times a week I also have been on a strict diet to make the weight and going to bed much earlier than I usually do these championships were suppose to take place last weekend on the 14th-16th but due to a fight break out in the venue it was cancelled so I've had to hold my weight for 2 more weeks which has been a struggle but it's all worth it in the end. They will now take place this weekend and I will be fighting for the belt in the youth championship finals on Sunday it will be taking place behind closed doors in Newcastle and I am very excited because it's the first time boxing for a belt.

After winning the esker box cup in October I had a lot off fights Lind up in November e.g england vs Ireland, nabgc's and the winter box cup but unfortunately I had too pull out off them all due to being ill and getting dizzy spells the doctor said I can't box until I've had a brain scan so hopefully next year is a better year for me and I will come back stronger and better than ever. I'm still ticking over in training and let's see what 2020 brings us 🥇
