If you haven’t already heard of Kay Prospere, you soon will have. Propsere, AKA Special K, is challenging for an English title in March 2019 – and he means business.
Born and bred in Luton, Kay started his boxing career relatively late. He turns 35 this year and those who don’t know him might assume he has left it a bit late. His record, 13 and 1 with 7 KOs only hints at his ability though. Beneath the polite and deliberate exterior beats the heart of a lion, confident, capable and deadly.
Kay’s story is one of dedication to the sport of boxing and its’ community in Luton. Having helped his cousin (Paul Webb) set up an amateur boxing gym in the town, it wasn’t long before Kay’s natural ability confirmed he had potential himself. As a young man growing up in Luton, there were different paths that could be followed, not all of them positive ones. Sport always played a central role in Kay’s life and following a promising spell in semi-professional football, it was boxing that became the driving force in his life.
It’s testament to the man that Kay sights his nomination for Luton Best Award for Inspiration in Sport as his most memorable achievement to date. This attitude towards Boxing: that it is more than a just a sport, but a way to elevate yourself and others, learn vital life skills such as discipline, commitment and self belief, is why Kay Prospere has such fierce support around him.
In 2016, Kay suffered the only defeat of his career and by his own admission, this was a tough one to take. He went in as clear favourite but a combination of poor prep and a hand injury meant a shock defeat followed. This experience has been turned to Kay’s advantage now though and has helped shape him into a more complete boxer, resulting in a fastidious attention to detail in his preparation, coupled with unshakeable self-belief.
Kay Prospere is in the form of his life going into this title fight and nothing is taken for granted and there is no room for complacency. York Hall, the historic boxing venue in Bethnal Green will be rocking to the sound of Kay’s supporters in March.
