Now is a great time to take stock of yourself and your career. Take inventory of where you are at, and make the changes necessary to get to where you want to be. It’s tough with a busy schedule, or maybe a full time job that pays the bills getting in the way of you applying yourself to things you know will take your career up a level or even get you on track to the career you want.
With so much negativity in the world right now, the good news is..you...

Some people may be using this period of self-isolation as an opportunity to take control of things, including their training and nutrition, and actually lose some body fat.
Other people may have previously had control and are now worried that this drastic change to their daily routine will result in putting body fat on during this period of isolation.
Whilst others may simply want a bit of guidance about nutrition when stuck at home all day.
March 2020 will forever be remembered in history. Staying safe and healthy (physically, mentally, financially) during CoVid 19 is our top priority.

How fear shouldn’t define you Just learn to embrace it.
I recently watched a video that Anthony Joshua posted “relating to the struggle”. It 100% hit home and I felt a connection to his words and how he was saying it.
We all have struggles and fears in life. Some of us can’t help but let them define who we are and some of us react to the fear doing everything possible to embrace and accept it. I loved how AJ spoke openly about...
By the time I was 13 years old, I had been already been boxing for three years. I was champion of England for my 63 kg weight category - yeah, I was a big kid and pretty mature for my age! One of the main reasons I had success at that age was because I could punch hard - which was great, but it had its downside.
Because I was punching so hard, but my body wasn’t fully developed, my hands took a lot of punishment. They were always swelling up and, to be honest, back...
Here's my story of how a cut cost me $43,000. I received this cut from a deliberate headbutt in my eighth professional fight.
The doctor who stitched me up after the fight, didn’t do the best job. There were a few fighters who were also cut on the show and as he was the only doctor sewing up the lacerations, I think he was rushed, so he didn’t do a great job.
Six weeks later at training camp for my next fight which was scheduled for eight weeks later...

I always knew Tony was going to do great things, but I never imagined how great.
Despite the 11 year age gap between us, Tony and I have always been very close. I have a ton of great memories from when I was little, he would chase me around the house and play games with me, even throughout his strict and demanding schedule as an amateur boxer on the England team. I never noticed his absence, as he always made time for me when he was home from his Sheffield training camps.
Boxing for fitness is a great way to not only spice up your training schedule, but to take your fitness to new levels you didn’t think possible. Below are some training methods you can incorporate into your routine and improve your boxing.
Improve your footwork and get light on your feet by learning to skip. This is key as it increases your ability to time movements and punches while you are balanced. Add speed to the exercise by turning the rope faster, jumping higher and...
