Star Profile- Jimmy

Our Elite Sports Academy is proud to announce that one of the members, Jimmy, has fought and won the British title in Thai boxing for his age category.

This fight took place last month in Barnsley, Jimmy has won the belt,and the title . A quote from the report reads: By round four, Jimmy is showing some matrix style timing and lands strong counters.

Jimmy is tipped for a bright future in the sport, starting when he was 7, now the champion at 36kg.

When Journalist Kate interviewed Jimmy he said, “ I do get nervous before a fight, but once I am in the ring i am excited to fight”.

This is a fantastic achievement and one that comes at a cost as Jimmy trains 6 times per week.
