My Story

Boxing is not just my job, it is my lifestyle and most importantly it is my passion. I love to box and train people - I believe boxing is great for the body, mind and soul. Over the years I have both competed as a boxer achieving Masters State, National and Asia Pacific titles as well as coaching NSW, State and World champions. 

I have run and owned Angry Ant Boxing Equipment with my wife Karen for 25 years bring quality boxing equipment to the community. Additionally to being sponsored by PunchFit I also present the PunchFit Personal Trainer certification courses now from Bondi Boxing Gym. 

As a previous head coach at Black Belt Pro I was able to observe and train many upcoming fighters whilst influencing other coaches in their development. I have held a Boxing Australia Level 1 coach certification since 1996 and am currently teaching a variety of boxing sessions at Bondi Boxing Gym.

Some of the athletes I have trained over the years include: Kangaroos Rugby League team, Todd Carney, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Sam Thaiday and Josh Dugan. One of my particular specialties is training younger athletes needing a confidence boost or discipline and am motivated by bringing joy and excitement to kids through boxing.
