Ally Grant UWCB Boxing Bout – June 2016

Robin French with Peter Squire and Ally Grant - June 2016

Like Hannibal Smith says, “I love it when a plan comes together…” And that just what happened when one of my personal training clients, Ally Grant, stepped into the ring at the latest UWCB event in Chelmsford.

Although Ally trains with me in Muay Thai, he had never previously competed in a striking-based combat sport, and had never worked with a pure boxing focus.

A fan of setting himself lofty goals, Ally signed up for the event, and the clock started ticking; with just eight weeks to prepare, he knew he had his work cut out.

Adding to the scheduled UWCB group sessions, Ally worked with myself and Peter Squire to set up an achievable game plan, and to get as good at enacting it as possible.

On the night, Ally executed the plan beautifully; regularly evading a stronger opponent before delivering some strong, direct strikes of his own. Because of this, together with a ton of cardio, Ally walked away with the win!

An awesome side effect of the event, was that Ally managed to raise nearly £400 for Cancer Research UK – Well done Ally!
