ABOUT ME

I discovered boxing when I was 14 at the Fisher Amateur Boxing Club in Bermondsey. From the very first day of entering the gym, I was completely hooked. I would show up almost every day after school – my coach Steve, saw that I was very eager and showed lots of raw talent. He was ready to put me in the ring after my first year of training but my mum was against the idea as I was so young. I continued to train nonetheless and had my first bout at the age of 18. From then I continued to compete at every chance I could throughout my early 20s and while at university.

I juggled my first graduate job as a designer with boxing but it was quite short lived. I worked for two years in the office, before I decided to quit. It was clear my passion was with boxing, so I continued and competed more regularly and obtained a coaching licence in 2016.

My experience as an amateur boxer has helped me a lot in transferring skills and knowledge to coaching. As an amateur boxer I have had over 20 bouts and reached elite level. My most notable achievement was winning a gold medal at the renowned International tournament: Haringey BoxCup. I became champion in the 69kg category. I also have Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) experience, another combat sport that interested me – I liked the idea of learning how to kick! I competed briefly at an amateur level then as a professional, fighting on a fast-growing UK promotion, the Muay Thai Grand Prix at the o2.

The more experience I gained in the ring competing and training, the more I got involved with coaching. The satisfaction from teaching and seeing students achieve their goals was greatly rewarding and it started to give me a new direction with the sport. Coaching slowly became more important, so I decided to put a pause on my fighting career and put all my attention into coaching. 

Since then I have coached a wide range of students ranging from complete beginners, to white-collar contenders, to elite championship boxers. I believe good quality boxing training isn’t exclusive only to boxers and athletes. I am here to pass on my experience and knowledge to anyone wishing to give boxing a try.
