About Cleary’s Boxing Gym
Boxing is one of the oldest sports in the world and requires a lot of respect and dedication. It is one of the only sports where every one is equal, It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, you will only ever have a contest with someone who is equal in size and experience.
Boxing is a great way to keep fit and boxers, amateur and professional, are well known for being some of the fittest athletes in the world. The training is hard but most importantly it is also fun.
As a former amateur and professional boxer I have trained in many boxing gyms around the country and trained alongside some of the best boxers and trainers in the world. Along my way through the amateur and professional ranks of boxing I have learned many different styles and techniques, all of which I now pass on to the members of my gym.
I started boxing in the late 80’s but it was Jack and Bet Turpin and their stories of Randolph, Jack and Dick that were a true inspiration and what ultimately led me to pursue boxing further.
I have learned a lot throughout my boxing career, in particularly from Legendary coach, Brendan Ingle (MBE), and his two sons, Dominc and John, from when I trained in Sheffield along side some of the best boxers and coaches in the world.
Former World featherweight champion, Prince Naseem Hamed, WBC Super lightweight champion, Junior Former British and European commonwealth champion Esham Pickering and WBF Lightweight Champion, John Thaxton are to name just a few.
I have adopted the tried and tested method (by Brendan Ingle MBE) of using only body sparing (no head shots) in my training sessions. This maximizes the work rate and minimizes the risk of injury.
I keep my training sessions fun and interesting and will not only keep you fit but also get you thinking about different styles and techniques to use in the boxing ring.
