Liverpool boxer Byron Abiru has had something of a chequered past in and out of the ring. But through boxing he has found his direction in life and has found the passion for pugilism which is a family tradition.

Boxing amateur, and being coached and mentored by Wayne Smith at the Golden Gloves Gym in his City, Byron has turned his life around through his sport and is now on the brink of making his professional debut on November 26th at the Fusion Night Club, Liverpool.

Byron, 28, is the Grandson of the former Nigerian champion Orlando Paso, who came to the UK with great African boxer Dick Tiger in the 50’s and fought most of his career here. Orlando’s son, Byron’s Dad also boxed, so it appears fighting it is in the Abiru blood.

The Golden Gloves ABC in Liverpool was established in 1947 and has had many head coaches and homes since it’s conception. Smith is now running the club and recently they moved the gym to another new premises on the Toxteth high street, where he with the help of friends and the boxers, have transformed an old run down building into a first class training facility for his amateur and now professional boxing stable.

British Boxers visited the Golden Gloves Gym this week on the opening day and spoke to Byron and Wayne about the boxers professional boxing future, his past and Wayne’s hopes and ambitions for his boxers.
