HOP Boxing Round Up

Boxing ups and downs.  Unluck for Tilly and Harry , both boxed really well and it was a close bout.

Harry  boxed in the Southern Counties Final today.  “To say we are proud is an understatement.  Carrying an injury to his ribs we discussed pulling out. However, Harry refused to quit and that’s exactly how he boxed. Tagged to the body early but dug deep showing true grit and heart, landing big shots and pushing his opponent back. Lost the bout but today I have seen a boy become a man.” says HOP coach Paul Kapnisi

What a journey we are on and experience. Gregory Bridét makes a great comeback fight.  To win the English Heavyweight Title Belt at the first attempt. After his lung collapsed 2 years ago, then 3 operations. “Greg had to have his lung stapled to his rib to keep it up” Taken off the GB Team 1 year before the Olympics due to injury.   His dreams were all shattered.  Well done champ from all at HOP Boxing Academy.   Massive thank you to Team HOP for supporting and helping Greg on his comeback.   Inspiration to every boxer out there.   We are all proud of you champ. #dontthinkyoucanknowyoucan 👊🏾💥
