This month we are featuring our newest sponsored athlete, Liam Dillon.
Liam is a professional boxer who trains with another SV sponsored athlete, Matthew Chanda. Both Liam and Matt train with Steve Kipps out of Sparta Gym in Chingford.
On 23 September, Liam underwent his third professional fight at the prestigious York Hall Bethnal Green.
Liam was set to go four 3-minute rounds. A first round knock happened as the bell sounded saving Liam’s opponent and allowed him to recover in the minute break. Liam went on to win the fight on a unanimous points decision (40-35). This win puts Liam at a 3-0 record for his professional career.
Liam is scheduled to box again on 2 December.
Liam is attentive to all aspects of his training: nutrition, mental and physical. He seeks out treatment from SV Sports Therapy when needed and especially to aid in preparation for each of his fights.
Liam’s coach, Steve, notices a great improvement in Liam’s power and speed after each treatment session.
We are proud to support Liam in his boxing career. Well done on your third fight and the big win Liam!
We're already looking forward to the next one!
