INSPIRING WOMEN

We've teamed up with GB boxing stars to raise awareness of women in boxing and offer inspiration to those wanting to try the sport for the very first time. Our campaign aims to highlight boxing as a universal sport, one that's not restricted by gender or experience. By working alongside the girls, we hope to raise awareness of the inspiring, powerful women in sport and prove how Boxfit UK can cater to every boxing addict, no matter what their gender.

MAISEYROSE COURTNEY
Maiseyrose got into boxing because she wanted to get fit for football when she was playing for a boys team under the name Mason. She says, "I just wanted to be the best I could be. Anyways, there was a boxing gym above my football club. Walked in, threw a few shots and realised I’m better at punching than kicking."

 

How has she found it in womens boxing. Hard. But at the same time rewarding. She was told so many times in her early boxing career that she'd never box or carry it on. Now years later and winning 6 national titles along with the highlight of winning the three nations in Scotland. Maiseyrose is also proud to be an England boxing representative and a part of Repton boxing club which makes all those past sacrifices worth it. In her own words "think they was wrong lol! Also the feeing of beating up a few fellas is also fun."

 

When asked how boxing has affected her life outside of the gym she replied "In boxing, to be the best you need to make sacrifices. If you don’t you will struggle. So many times I’ve missed out on going out, going to parties, messing around with mates. But I wouldn’t change it for a thing, but that don’t mean you can’t have fun, just make sure boxing comes first. That’s what I done."

 

Her dream now is to turn pro, so just watch this space!

RACHEL BOWER

Whilst working as a police officer, a colleague suggested that Rachel enter the Police Boxing Tournament. She says "They told me he would train me up and do my corner. I realised after our first session that he didn’t know what he was doing and it wasn’t the boxing he was interested in! I’d already told everyone I was entering so I sought out a proper coach and went on to win gold."

 

Since then Rachel has gone on to win the Elite National Championships in 2015, boxed for England, competed in two World Police and the Fire Games in the USA along with even taking her own team to third as their coach. Fortunate to have had coaches who were strong advocates for women in boxing Rachel now uses her amazing experiences, due to her gender, to become a coach to guide others. 

 

In reply to how boxing has affected her life outside the gym, she says" Boxing has given me skills I’ve used in every aspect of my life. It’s my therapy, it keeps me sane and it’s given me confidence to do things I never imagined myself doing. Coaching has given even more and I use the skills I’ve developed in my professional and personal life."

 

Now Head Coach of her club and in the process of setting up a second along with being an England Talent Pathway Coach and on the GB Boxing Female Development Programme.

But one of her personal achievements was winning the English Elite National Champion whilst representing her club Haringey BC.

 

Asked on how she has found it as a female in boxing she replied. "Very exciting - it’s a great time to be a female boxer as there are so many opportunities."

 

 

Boxing has given Amy confidence and a sense of contentment, she even met her husband through boxing! As she put it "That was pretty life-changing!" Having recently turned pro and awaiting her debut we can’t wait to see what is next for Amy!

 

SAMEENAH TOUSSAINT

At just 18, Sameenah has already won two schools national champion, GB Three Nations schools champion, two junior national champions, been a youth national champion as well as European junior bronze medalist in 2018. With hopes of going to the Olympics before turning pro Sameenah. When questioned how she got into boxing she said, "One day, when I was 10 years old, my dad spontaneously took me to my local boxing gym. There was no particular reason for him taking me, I feel like he just thought boxing would teach me vital life skills and self defence." She's come a long way since then.

 

The achievements are not all she has achieved, it has given her much more. Sameenah says "Boxing has provided me with self discipline, confidence and a positive attitude which can be used in many situations, not just in the ring. It has also led me to meet new people and develop friendships with boxers who share similar goals and aspirations. Training 6 days a week, twice a day, means I sometimes find it hard juggling my training with school work and free time. However, I try to keep to a schedule and manage my time as effectively as possible. I just know that one day, it will all be worth it."

SHANNON COURTENAY
Shannon started her boxing career at Finchley ABC & Islington ABC and has been boxing for 6 years. She got into boxing by chance. “I had no intentions of fighting only went to a boxer use class to lose some weight & give up smoking & fell in love with the sport.” Little did Shannon know that she would go on as an amateur to win gold at the Haringey box cup, win an International tournament in Sweden, be an ABA finalist and Southern area champion. But then, Shannon’s aspirations have always been big: “As a professional I’m signed to Mathroom and I’m fighting for the WBA world title in just 4 weeks time!” 


All female boxers have various experiences in the world of boxing. “I feel like I came into the sport at the perfect time when women’s boxing was on the rise and being more socially accepted so I’ve not had some of the struggles that some female fighters have experienced many years ago of it almost being looked down upon, I feel like especially nowadays women’s boxing is booming.”


Boxings effect on Shannon’s life outside of the gym: “It’s given me a purpose, boxing changed my life and I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunities that have arisen because of this sport. It’s allowed me to wake up every morning and do what I love for a living and to me that’s priceless.” 


Over the years she has been boxing there has been some great moment, but on of the highlights so far was walking out live on Sky Sports on her debut. “I don’t think that feeling will ever be matched.”
