If you're looking to get in shape like a boxer or you're just looking for some boxing workouts to add to your own routine then you're at the right place. You can also find plenty of drills, techniques and tips to help you exercise like a champ.




You can say what you like about how padded his record is, but no one can accuse heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder of inactivity. He's already fought six times in the last year and he has two upcoming fights in May and June. It's a gruelling schedule he is keeping, and he is lucky his opponents aren't good enough to cause an upset.

Deontay's name is usually brought up when you talk about heavyweight boxing prospects, along with David Price, Seth Mitchell, Tyson Fury and Mike Perez. He does deserve to be on that list; he proved his technical ability with an Olympic bronze medal and as a pro he has gone undefeated. The problem is he is being handled like a carton of eggs.

By that I don't mean he's being boiled and eaten with toast and a cup of tea, more that his management team seem scared he'll break if he takes the least step up in class. For anyone who has been hoping he will ramp it up soon, I have to disappoint you. His next two opponents aren't terrible, but they're a way short of good.

On May 26th he fights 36 year old Jessie Oltmanns, a heavyweight with a 10-2 record whose two losses came against a journeyman and a prospect. Then a month later he takes on a guy with a worse record, Nashville resident Owen Beck who has lost seven fights in a row.

I have the utmost respect for the fighters we call journeymen, and our sport wouldn't exist without them, but Deontay Wilder really needs to cut what amounts to a boxing umbilical chord and take on a better level of opposition if he wants to be recognised as a contender.
