Tommy Philbin’s story is a gruelling one. Having been hospitalised with depression, he’s now worked his way back to fitness and is living the life of a professional fighter.
In these latest articles, I’ve covered more boxing but also had the opportunity to write for a new site, Boxing Insider. I got the opportunity to review a set of Corner ‘punch trackers’ for them which was an interesting chance to mix boxing with technology writing and reviewing.
Here’s a piece I wrote for Debut. They’re a site all about careers with their own app for graduates to find jobs. This piece is a discussion of army careers for grads.
Here’s a selection of pieces I wrote for Hellraiser Boxing, the website of prominent London boxing promoter, Micky Helliet.
No one was backing Tony Bellew before his first fight with David Haye but I was confident that the bookmakers had got it wrong. I wrote this piece on Bellew’s chances and am proud, in retrospect, that I went against the tide of Haye support to write the piece.
Sure, I’ve got plenty of predictions wrong too, like any sports writer. (I recently thought Frankie Gavin might have half a chance for the European title and that was, admittedly, a terrible call!) This is a well reasoned, well-researched prediction that I’m proud of though.
