Moulsecoomb Amateur Boxing Club


Paul Bott, Senior Negotiator at our Kemp Town Branch tells us about the inspirational and talented boxer Jordan Hughes, at the Mishon Mackay Sponsored Moulsecoomb Amateur Boxing Club.

“I’m currently training to be a coach, not only in the sport that I love, but at one of the best amateur boxing clubs not only in the city but the south east, spending time at Moulsecoomb ABC and having the chance to give something back to the local kids is just truly amazing.

I am surrounded by such inspirational people, both champions of yesterday and today along with national coaches which truly shows the standard of boxing at this great club.

There is currently a particularly outstanding boxer with vast potential called Jordan Hughes. Jordan is a young man of 20 who after winning his 13th fight was recently crowned the Southern Counties Champion in the 67kg category, on a unanimous points decision.

Jordan has been boxing for two years, watching him you would have thought it was a lot longer, as he has such a natural and fluid style. He spent his first year at Hove ABC, but found more of a home with us all here at Moulsecoomb, and has been with us ever since.

Jordan has had his up’s and down’s in life, but has found strength and discipline here at Moulsecoomb, and is shows every week in his desire to become both the best boxer and person that he can be.

We at Moulsecoomb would like to add that we are enormously grateful for the continued fantastic support given to us by Mishon Mackay. It gives the boxers and the young kids real identity, an identity that we are all very proud of and of one that will stay with us forever.

On a personal note, it is a real honour for me to train with such great boxer’s like Jordan, a truly inspirational young man, who is no doubt set to become and national champion, and who knows from there.

Jordan’s next fight is the National Championship Quarter Final which is next week, so fingers crossed.”
