Connor Coghill – A Fighter’s Journey
Connor’s journey in the world of boxing began at the age of 10, inspired by his step-dad, a passionate boxing enthusiast and friend of Mick Bromby MBE, a distinguished Level 4 England Boxing Coach at St Paul’s Boxing Academy in North Church Side.
Connor’s initial foray into the sport was prompted by a desire to stand his ground, as he was tired of being on the receiving end of roughhousing from his friends.
Under the guidance of Mick Bromby, who had trained notable talents like Olympic champion Luke Campbell and Commonwealth titleholder Tommy Coyle, Connor began to learn the art of self-defense.
Even at just 25kg as an 11-year-old, considerably lighter than the average for his age (which stood at 37kg), Connor fearlessly sparred with older and larger opponents during grueling training sessions.
These formative years, marked by numerous broken noses, instilled in him an unwavering determination to emerge as a champion. At the age of 16, Connor transitioned to the Stevie Smith Boxing Academy, where he honed his skills as an amateur boxer.
During his amateur career, he contested an impressive 65 fights, emerging victorious in 45 of them. This strong foundation culminated in his decision to turn professional at the age of 22.
Becoming a professional boxer required Connor to obtain a license from the British Boxing Board of Control, a testament to his commitment and dedication.
Preparing for fights demanded rigorous training, with up to five hours a day dedicated to a blend of sparring, cardiovascular conditioning, running, swimming, and intense punching bag workouts.
Connor’s relentless work ethic and resilience have shaped him into a formidable presence in the boxing world as he continues to chase his dreams in the ring.
