Garry Monkhouse - Q&A Aug 2016
 

Next in our series of Q&A sessions with Greenock Boxers is Garry Monkhouse who has some big targets for the year ahead!

How long have you been boxing?

I started boxing when I was 12 until I was 16, then had a gap of 9 years before returning again.

What got you into boxing?

My full family has been involved in the sport so was always only a matter of time

What do you consider your biggest boxing achievement?

I won the Scottish junior championships & reached the final of the the Scottish youth

What are your targets for the upcoming season?

The first championships of the new season is the western districts in November, I'll make sure I'm more than ready to go on & win them

Who has been your toughest opponent? (Sparring or Fight)

I would have to say John Simpson in sparring but he teaches you a lot so you benefit from it.

If you could train alongside any fighter, past or present, who would you pick?

My hero growing up was Sugar Ray Leonard, I loved his style and he was always in exciting fights so training beside him would be good.

What is tougher, training or dieting?

Both parts are hard, the sprints on the track for fitness can be horrible but also the last few days before a fight to make weight can be tough.

What 1 piece of advice would you give to the younger boxers in the club?

If you listen to the coaches & put the hard work in, you will see the benefits.

Whats the ultimate goal for you as an amateur boxer?

A senior national title is everybody's goal I think, so to do that would be unbelievable.

Do you ever see yourself going pro?

I would love to go pro, if I have a good season this year & build up some more experience then I would have a think about it.

Tony Orr - Q&A Aug 2016
 

With the 2016/17 boxing season fast approaching, we caught up with Greenock Boxing Clubs, Tony Orr.

Tony has achieved a lot during his time with the club and is now someone the younger boxers can look up to. We asked Tony a few questions to help you get to know the people associated with Greenock Boxing Club. 

How long have you been boxing?

Ive been boxing for five years.

What got you into boxing?

I started boxing to improve my fitness for football but boxing soon took over and I havent looked back.

What do you consider your biggest boxing achievement?

I have won the Scotish Championship three times running now which is something I'm really proud of however the biggest achievement has to be attending the European Championships in Ukraine to represent Scotland.

What are your targets for the upcoming season?

My goal for this season is to win the British Championship. I have came close in the last two seasons and feel I should have won last year and the year before but I've learned from the experience and I feel as if I can go on and win it this season.

Who has been your toughest opponent? (Sparring or Fight)

My toughest opponent would have to be the fight against an Irish opponent at the European Championships which I unfortunately lost in a good fight. The boy was more experienced and I that probably gave him the edge.

If you could train alongside any fighter, past or present, who would you pick?

Vasyl Lomachenko because I think he is the most skillful and fastest fighter in the sport and would love to pick up some of his moves

What is tougher, training or dieting?

I've always found dieting the tougher aspect but I think training will be harder this season as I am moving up two weight classes from 52kg to 56kg.

What 1 piece of advice would you give to the younger boxers in the club?

Keep training hard and your time will come, you'll be champion in no time.

Whats the ultimate goal for you as an amateur boxer?

I'm not really looking too far ahead other than winning the next fight.

Do you ever see yourself going pro?

I would like to go pro eventually if I can win a some senior titles as an amatuer first.
