AFTER winning the Golden Belt tournament in Romania, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Antony Fowler will only have a brief break before returning to full training. The next season of the World Series of Boxing begins in January and with the UK team, the British Lionhearts included once again, Fowler and GB’s top boxers will have to condition themselves to prepare for five three-minute rounds in this pro-style format.

“From next Monday I’m back training over Christmas. It’ll be hard sacrificing my Christmas but it’ll be worth it when I box in the WSB,” Antony told Boxing News. “With the five rounds that’ll suit me more because I can take my time and I come on strong towards the end of fights.

“We’ll be doing longer runs, a little bit less sprints, more stamina. It won’t be a massive difference, it’s only two rounds more but there will be a few little changes in my training.
