Meet The Team - Ben Doughty

Ben

I had my first amateur fight in 1981 and my last in March 2004, winning 26 of 38 contests and a brace of regional ABA titles. Prior to a bout in New York, in 2003 at Brooklyn's legendary Gleason's Gym, I also served as sparring partner for numerous World Champions and contenders including Vivian Harris, Wayne Braithwaite and Paulie Malignaggi.

Electing not to turn pro, upon retirement I went into coaching. After a year as Head Junior Coach at Angel ABC I moved to the world famous Repton Boys Club and quickly became a key member of the Senior Coaching Team.

After 4 years at Britain's premier amateur club, in 2008 I took out a professional license and have worked with Lucian Bot, highly rated light-middleweight Yassine El Maachi and the world rated Choi Tseevenpurev.

Alongside my involvement at the "cutting edge" of boxing, I have an extensive background in training casual enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels.

I specialize in Speed Pads, if you YouTube my name you will see many examples of this technique. I am also a  regular contributor to Fighting Fit Magazine on multiple aspects of the Sweet Science,
