Michael Hughes, a boxer from King Alfred Boxing Club, has turned professional.
KING Alfred Boxing Club member Michael Hughes has turned professional, signing a three year contract with Bristol promoter Chris Sanigar.
Michael has been with King Alfreds from the age of nine, winning most of his fights and has been Western Counties champion several times. He has reached the national finals, where he lost on points.
At the age of 15, he was taken to Jane Couch’s gym and sparred with pro-boxer Danny Butler. As he got stronger, it was decided to take him to Sanigar’s gym, where he was offered a contract that day.
As he needs to travel to Bristol every day, he is asking if anyone would be able to sponsor him.
