Corecom Sponsors Semi-pro Boxer
Award-winning IT recruitment specialist, Corecom Consulting has announced sponsorship of employee and Senior Consultant, Sacha Smith, in her upcoming boxing fight on 1 July 2016.
Sacha has been preparing for a number of weeks ahead of her competition with a strict dietary routine and tough training procedures. Here is a snapshot of her weekly training programme:
Monday: Hill sprints and running, stamina on the bags (long rounds of non-stop punching).
Tuesday: Billy Burnout (our trainer Billy puts us through numerous torturous exercises for at least half an hour), then bag work and sparring.
Wednesday: Hill sprints in the park, bag work and sparring.
Thursday: Outdoor workout, including running up and down the stairs, jogging, tyre flipping. Then bag work, sparring and abs.
Friday: Strength work, including weight training, shoulders, legs and abs.
Saturday: A 1-2-1 personal session focusing on technique, with pads.
Speaking ahead of her fight, Sacha said:
“I’ve only been boxing for a year but I already have five competitive fights under my belt, winning four and losing just one. I’m very excited for this fight as it will be the first that is marked on my semi-professional boxing license with this being my first European Boxing Federation (EBF) licensed fight.
“I first got into boxing when I signed up for a charity boxing fight last year, raising £350 for MacMillan Cancer Support. I really enjoyed the training in preparation for the fight and so I decided to stick with it.
“Although I am well prepared for the fight I am against stiff competition fighting against Sam Dekota from Stockport, but I am confident that my 10 hour a week training programme and intense dieting will place me in good stead for the challenge.”
Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director of Corecom Consulting said:
“It’s a pleasure to be sponsoring Sacha on such a big occasion for her. Her branded shorts have arrived and they look great with the Corecom logo on, and on behalf of the team here I’d like to wish her the best of luck for the fight on 1 July.”
Many of the staff from Corecom Consulting will be attending the fight to show their support for Sacha for what will hopefully be her first win as a semi-professional boxer.
Sacha will be fighting on the evening of Friday 1 July 2016 at The Bramley Villagers Community Club, Broad Lane, Leeds. Those interested in spectating can contact Sacha directly on 07947 518132 or firstname.lastname@example.org
