What is Contender Boxing?
Contender Boxing is a 10-week long boxing programme open to people of any skill and ability. Most contenders don’t have heaps of experience or as much training as professional boxers do but go through training that helps them prepare for their first fight. Whether you’re new to boxing or you’ve been out of the ring a while and haven’t fought before, this is the event for you.
Why do Contender Boxing?
Contender Boxing is for anyone, no matter if you’re looking to improve your strength and stamina, want to try a new workout that’s a little bit out of your comfort zone or simply want to channel your energy into punching. It can also be a great way to socialise with other boxing enthusiasts and you’ll pick up on new skills and techniques other workouts may not be able to give you. Take it from our very own contender boxers who found it to be an “amazing journey” that gave them confidence to fight.
Behind the training
You’ll find yourself improving week on week and you’ll take that confidence outside of your training too.
“[The coaches] fully supported us along the way, gave us confidence and prepared us physically to fight.”
Your first fight
It’s finally fight night, you’ve got your gloves on and all the hard work you’ve put in over the training period will finally pay off in the ring. Contender Boxing fights are usually done in 3 rounds of 2 minutes. You’ll be matched for a fair fight against another opponent and then, the next 2 minutes are yours to shine. The time will fly by and no matter what the outcome, it’s a fantastic achievement to have made it to the big event.
