Life Changing Chance
Another Maverick Star will be flying the flag at the forthcoming AIBA World Boxing Championships in Serbia. Conner Tudsbury has been added to the select group of GB Boxers and joins super-heavyweight and fellow ambassador Delicious Orie at the tournament.
Conner is set to step up a weight division to compete in the new cruiserweight (81-86kg) category. The trip to Belgrade completes a fantastic year for the 21year old Mancunian who has already competed internationally at the EUBC U22 European championships and the Socikas tournament in Lithuania where he won a gold medal.
“The opportunity [to compete at the new weight] was there so I've taken it," Conner said. "I reckon I'll be good at cruiserweight! I've got the strength, the speed, the fitness. I'm looking forward to the World Championships. It's going to be great. It's a life changing opportunity. I want to win and bring home the gold."
Although confident he can make a huge impression at the tournament, Conner intends to compete back down in the light heavyweight division in the future.
