A WESTBURY boxer is on the hunt for sponsors to help him on his professional journey to fight for the Southern Area middlewight or super middleweight title.

Local man, Anthony Fox, who has been boxing for five years, turned professional in May 2016 with no amateur experience.

Anthony explained, “My brother was a professional boxer before me. I had wanted to box for a while, but was always a bit nervous about going to a boxing gym. Eventually, I asked my brother to take me to the gym with him.”

So far in his career, his record stands at two wins, 10 losses and four draws and he has competed in events broadcasted on BoxNation, Sky Sports and ITV undercards. “My boxing career so far has been good. However it could have been better as I’ve been unlucky with a few close decisions that I’ve been on the wrong side of, due to being in the away corner. All four of my draws should have been wins in my and many other’s opinion, as well as some of the losses.

“A highlight of my career so far has probably been fighting current wbc International Middleweight champion, Craig Cunningham, who beat former Olympic bronze medalist Anthony Ogogo to win that title. Although I lost by two points, it was nice to know I could cause problems for someone at that level (the wbc International title wasn’t on the line). I’ve also sparred Chris Eubank Jr, which is another highlight.

“I’m looking to turn my career around by fighting on a couple of home shows, possibly one in Frome in March 2018 and then eventually fight for the Southern Area title. I currently train two or three times a day six, sometimes seven days a week, alongside doing some 1-to-1 boxing training at Club 24 in Westbury.

“Sponsorship will help me to pay for annual brain scans and medicals, training equipment, fight kit, fuel to gyms (250 miles a week travelling to various gyms), supplements and food during my strict diet. As a sponsor you will get great exposure of your company all across the UK as well as locally. Any sponsorship would be hugely appreciated.”
