A boxer from Rickmansworth, who has recently signed as a professional, is calling on the community to support him on his journey.
22-year-old Brandon Webb first became interested in Boxing when he took part in a charity event for Cancer Research at age 17 and later joined South Oxhey Boxing Club.
After hard work and consistent training, he signed as a professional boxer in November 2020, coached by Josh Burnham, an ex-professional himself. Brandon said he is grateful that Josh has taken him under his wing and given him this opportunity.
Brandon told RickyNews: “It hasn’t really sunk in yet, because of all this COVID stuff and not being able to fight right now. I am training hard at the minute. Hopefully, towards the end of this year, I will have my professional debut.”
Brandon has been training every day as a professional athlete, alongside working as a fire stopper on construction sites. He is currently sponsored by Ebrit Fire Protection and BFA Recycling.
He added: “It’s not a case of I have always been a Boxer. Before my charity match, I had done nothing in terms of Boxing, I was not sporty at all and was out drinking, smoking and getting into trouble.”
Brandon wants to prove his ability in his debut professional fight, which he hopes will take place in late 2021 depending on government guidelines. To enquire about sponsorship contact Brandon on 07723 394075.
