Pride Boxing 2024 - Fighter Sign up Page

Pride Boxing 2024

Pride Boxing is back! 

Time to sign up for your space in PRIDE BOXING 2024!

We are back with a fantastic LGBTQ+ White Collar boxing event. This is an official Pride in London event which culminates in a glamorous evening on the Thursday 27th June showcasing all of our LGBTQ+ fighters at the world famous venue The Clapham Grand!

Our fight camp welcomes all people across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. We want everyone to have the opportunity to train and fight in our safe, welcoming and inclusive space. We make sure that everyone who wants to take part feels welcome and can take part regardless of your gender, sexuality, fitness level or experience - come and have a go!

We pride ourselves on making sure that you can train and compete with likeminded people throughout our camp. Our matching process ensures that you will be matched with an appropriate opponent usually based on weight, experience & skill.

You’ll have the opportunity to fundraise and support Pride in London and get to join us as we march as part of the Pride in London parade on the 29th June.

Pride Boxing has been constantly delivering the UKs best LGBTQ+ White collar competitive boxing experience since 2016. Our organisation is run by industry experts and LGBTQ+ people who, between them, are professional fighters, world champions and coaches to world champions. All of the team have pulled on gloves and been in the ring themselves at some stage.

What is Fight camp?

You will join our 10 week fight camp led by Jon Durrant and his coaching team. We accept all levels of ability so no worries if you haven't done any exercise for ages or you’re a regular at the gym, our coaches have developed and deliver a camp that works for all levels of experience. We don't separate training into binary genders so don't worry about that either, you can truly be yourself in our fight camp.

You don't need to be fit to start but you do have to start to get fit!

Expect :

- Introduction to boxing,

- Basic Punches

- Basic Defence

- Footwork

- Pad drills / combinations

- Advanced defence

- Sparring sessions (including 4 mandatory sessions)

- Fight Prep

You will learn all the fundamental steps on your road to the ring.

Our Camp consists of

- 18 Core sessions at The Jon Durrant Training Studio, Victoria (we expect each fighter to attend a minimum of half of these sessions)

- 4 of the sessions are Mandatory ‘must attend’ sparring sessions.

- 1 White collar fight against an equally matched opponent.

(We have the above minimum attendance requirements to maintain our safety standards and ensure that you and your opponent are safely prepared to fight)

What equipment do I need to take part ?
