Hi there, thank you for taking the time to read my project, my name is Xander, I’m 19 years old and live in Balloch, Scotland. The reason for my project is my desire to become a pro Scottish boxer, I currently compete at semi-pro level which has gained me my experience of 12 fights. My record is 10 wins and 2 losses one by stoppage and other was by a highly debated decision.
I train full time, i know to some people they may disagree on my decision to do this but as a young father I feel that I must do what makes me happy and I want to commit to it 110%. I haven’t came from a privileged back round, I was brought up on different council estates with my family and i wish to change that life for my daughter who i feel is my biggest inspiration.
I train in a gym in Glasgow which is an hours drive to and an hours drive back and from 4 times a week. Fuel costs can be huge as well as nutrition, equipment fees and class fees. I have a great team of coaches behind me that are in full support of my choice of career and invest countless hours of time and effort in me every week.
My dream to be a Scottish pro boxer came about 2 years ago when I had my first fight and I was instantly in love with the sport. As a young teenager I was a bit of a jack the lad at school but when I found boxing everything pointed to it as a career and I intend to follow it to the best of my ability. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and hopefully help me on my journey to be one of the greats. Also if anyone would like to see me in action you can check my social media outlets facebook and instagram as well as youtube, feel free to message me as well for any further questions.
Thank you for your support.
