Pictons Supports Luton’s Champion Amateur Boxer Jordan Reynolds to Train in Los Angeles
Pictons, is supporting Luton’s champion amateur boxer Jordan Reynolds to fulfil his dream of training in the best gyms in the world in the USA.
Jordan, who recently added a second British title to his name when he became the Amateur Light Middleweight Champion, is now struggling to find the fights he needs to keep up the momentum of his winning ways. He retains his first title as British Amateur Light Welterweight Champion.
Jordan says “I am raising the funds through ‘crowd funding’ so that I can train at some of the best boxing gyms in the world, which are based in Los Angeles. For my next fight I have to go to Denmark to meet my opponent who is a European champion. I need to continue to up my game because I’ve got my eye on the Olympics in 2016 and after that I want to turn professional. I love boxing more than anything and I’m never happier than when I’m in the ring. From 21st February I’ll be allowed to fight without using head guards which will be so much better for me as a fighter and also for the fans.”
Sukh Saini, Managing Partner at Pictons “We are great at spotting young talent and although that’s usually in the legal field we certainly hit the jackpot with Jordan. He’s just a great young fighter and has the right passion, skill and ambition to go all the way. Our sponsorship will help him to get to train with the best in LA. I am sure he’s going to be fighting for Team GB in Rio in 2016 and I want to have a ringside seat there to cheer him on.”
Jordan concludes “I get recognised by fans a lot in Luton, who call me ‘Elvis’ because they see me as the King of Boxing! I’m working as a butcher when I’m not with my trainer Micky Driscoll at his gym in West Ham and I’m saving as much as I can to go towards the £4,000 I need for my LA trip. I’m sure I’ll get there and I really appreciate any donations people are able to give me. I can’t wait to experience how they do it in the US, Everything I do is focused on winning.”
The incentives for the donations include t-shirts, being a VIP guest at one of Jordan’s fights and even a training session with him. The funding duration dates are due to be extended.
