How I Embrace My Fear & Not Let It Define Me
Feb 20, 2020

By author: Stewart Wilson

How Boxing As A Pre-Teen Injured My Hands - Tony Jeffries
Feb 10, 2020

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!

How a Cut from a Headbutt Cost Me $43,000!

Six weeks later at training camp for my next fight which was scheduled for eight weeks later...

My Amazing Brother, the Sunderland Boxer, Tony Jeffries
Nov 22, 2019

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.
