Every since running the Marathon des Sables in April 2016. I've been looking for a new challenge. A challenge that would test me both mentally & physically. I love boxing and I'd love for more women to get involved with the sport. When I heard about UWCB I thought this is it! This is the challenge that will test me, but it will also be an opportunity to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
I don't know anyone who hasn't been impacted by this disease. It's all around us, it takes life. It takes old people, young people, men and women, boys and girls and in order to defeat it we need to know more.
We have to do research and we have to invest in it. Like everything it costs money and by me stepping into the ring in December. I hope you will put your hand in your pocket and sponsor me - £5 or £10 would make a huge difference.
Training started in October and I have 8 weeks to get fight ready!
What I've come to realise - this is not an easy challenge, there are so many different aspects that have to be considered. Technique, fitness, how you move your body, being about to think about strategy and its true - everyone has a plan until you get hit in the face!!!
This is as much a mental challenge as it is a physical one. I'm not going to lie, stepping into the ring is scary, and this is outside my comfort zone. This is going to challenge me!!!
