Thomas Stalker fighting back from defeat to Jack Catterall

To rebuild after a devastating loss, Thomas Stalker has linked up with trainer Danny Vaughan, writes John Dennen

THOMAS STALKER, the captain of Britain’s last Olympic team, suffered a devastating defeat when he fought Jack Catterall in October. To rebuild he has joined forces with trainer Danny Vaughan.

“Nothing went right for me. I was just ashamed at how bad I boxed,” Stalker said of the loss. “But its not like I’m not with [Seamus Macklin] now I got beat. He didn‘t have the time as much, he‘s based back in Birmingham. I‘m staying in Marbella. I’m happy I’m with Danny Vaughan. I’ve got a big year coming up. I’m trying to do lightweight as well for this fight. I’m going to weigh at 9st 12lbs and see how I feel.”

He’ll be doing his strength, conditioning and nutrition with Jason Lowndes, aka “The Taffanator”. “I didn’t diet in camp,” Stalker explained. “I was three pounds over on the morning of the weigh in. I ended up going two pounds under… It’s my own fault. That’s not why I got beat. Obviously I didn’t turn up on the day, I boxed terrible. It’s a learning curve now.
