    My issue with Promoters
    What is a boxing Promoter? Salesman? Money maker? Advertiser? Organiser? Well I suppose the role naturally encompasses all of the aforementioned. One thing that isn't in the list is 'humanitarian'. Someone who is there to care and empathise with the failures and successes. Arguably it's not their role, a boxer has friends and family outside the ring to care for them and help them in good times and bad. But there was a stark contrast I witnessed this past weekend that shone a light for me on the

    Fight Night
    There are very few times in life you can look yourself in the mirror and feel a genuine sense of pride and accomplishment. Feel that you have achieved something both for yourself and for the greater cause. Right now I can do that. I'm proud to have stuck through the eight week journey of training. I'm proud to have been part of a team that has done so much together. I'm proud to have done my part in raising money for cancer research, my contribution to the group total of approaching £20,000. I'm

    Diary of a white collar boxer - fight night
    It's fight day. In one sense it has dragged to get to this point, in another it has flown by and the eight weeks have seemed like eight days. Are there nerves? No, not really yet. There's a few hours to get to the venue, plenty of time for nerves when I get there! There's very little that can be done extra now. Last night involved watching Anthony Joshua win the IBF world heavyweight title with a mate. We managed to fit in a few rounds of pad work between fight to stay loose. Little bit of a

    Diary of a while collar boxer - week 7
    One day I will look back on the last seven weeks and reflect on the challenges, the ups and downs and the faces that I've shared a room with while the steam bounces off the walls and ceilings. It will be nice to reminisce about the training, how at the stage of week three or four you start to have the self doubt about making it to the end and fitting the training in around your pre-existing lifestyle. But for those that have overcome the mental hurdles as much as the physical, I can only assume

    Levels. Ask any professional boxer and they will tell you that boxing is all about levels. Novices who have just turned over to professional and starting their story, journeymen who turn out week after week to lose and help blood the new entrants into the sport. Gatekeepers, those who hang around at championship level and are seen as THE person to get through on your way to the titles. Champions, the elite level of the sport who are chased by so many and in numbers are so few. It's no different

    Diary of a White Collar Boxer - Week 5
    Week 5 It's getting nearer. Less creeping up, more train hurtling along with wreck less abandon while the Fat Controller mutters something about faulty buffers. Fight night is just over three weeks away and the focus of those left is understandably turned now to April 10th and stepping between the ropes in front of 1,500 (probably) boozed up audience members. Tickets sales are complete, so now in scenes similar to Wolf of Wall Street the Facebook group is awash with buyers and regrettably few

    Diary of a White Collar Boxer
    Diary of a White Collar Boxer White Collar Boxing is becoming an ever growing way of increasing participation of people with no boxing experience into the sport.  Eight weeks training then step between the ropes against a similarly matched opponent.  Sounds simple, right?  Well I've just finished week two of training to take part in the Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) event in Milton Keynes, fight night still seems ages away on April 10th.  No doubt the calendar will quickly roll around.

    Breaking Down The WBA Heavyweight Tournament
    What is it? This week the head of the WBA (World Boxing Association), Gilberto Mendoza, announced that his governing body will be holding a tournament to crown its heavyweight champion. The WBA have come under both criticism and scrutiny from boxing fans of late for their propensity to have multiple champions within each weight division. As if having different governing bodies (WBA, IBF, WBO, WBA) wasn't confusing enough for boxing fans, the WBA have historically (recently) had their own tiers

    Catchweights - What and Why?
    Catchweights seem to be a huge talking point right now.  Over the last couple of months we have seen 3 high profile fights take place outside of the standard weight limits – Miguel Cotto vs Daniel Geale, Andre Ward vs Paul Smith & Shawn Porter vs Adrien Broner.   Historically catchweights were used to allow two fighters in different weight classes to 'meet in the middle', offering no advantage to either fighter.  But of the 3 listed above, all of the fighters have fought in each others

    Top 10 British Propsects for Next Season
    Boxing in the UK traditionally takes a month off during the month of August.  Fighters recuperate, promoters get their shows lined up and fans try and get their fix overseas.  So as the off season approaches, we take a look at the top prospects for next season.  The criteria we have applied is that they can't have fought for a world title and must have had under 20 fights.  Otherwise, they're all fair game!  Soh, here goes (in no particular order).... 1.  Anthony Joshua (13-0-0) He was always

    What is a.......Purse Bid
    What is a purse bid? On the face of it, you would think of an eBay auction to purchase women's accessories. However in the world of boxing it becomes more complex....yet is staggeringly simple. Purse bids are in the news this week because of the high profile heavyweight title fight to take place this autumn between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury. Fury has become the mandatory challenger to Klitschko for two of the three belts he holds (IBF, WBO & WBA). A champion is allowed a voluntary
