The Boxing Science Journey

On 7th July 2012, Brook fought another American, Carson Jones in what was supposed to be a routine victory (if anything of the sort exists in sport), but Jones had other ideas and took Brook all 12 rounds in a brutal encounter that required both fighters to be hospitalised after the contest – Kell Brook the winner on points, but it was certainly an eye opener if wanting to be a force in the welterweight division.

​A few days after the fight Dave Hembrough received a call from Brook’s trainer, Dominic Inglewho asked if we could support Kell, for his next fight which was a final eliminator for a shot at the world-title and potentially for the world title-fight.

​Despite a lack of sport science research in Boxing, Dave and Alan Ruddock explored evidence-based practices to help Kell achieve elite physical performance, which eventually helped him capture the IBF Welterweight World Title in August 2014.

The program with Kell was the start of our journey in Boxing....

Whilst Dave and Alan got Kell in the shape of his life, Danny Wilson was a masters student and an aspiring Strength and Conditioning coach keen to work in Boxing himself. 

​Danny started voluntary experience with Callum Beardow, Kas Hussain and Dave Howe. This included 1-1/small group sessions, programming and testing. Through this good work, Danny started to build his boxing network in the local area, and decided to start a Saturday morning session named 'Combat Conditioning'.

​The sessions were open to different gyms, ages and abilities, but predominantly boxers attending were from Sheffield City ABC and Ingle Gym, whom we still have great relationships with today.

Danny was still studying for his MSc in Sport and Exercise Science, and needed to perform research for his thesis. Danny and Alan created a Physiological Testing Battery for Boxing ​so we could determine what physical characterstics were required for successful boxing performance.

​Over five testing sessions, we had over 30 amatuer and professional boxers take part in strength, speed and fitness assessments. They didn't know it at the time, but they were moulding the future of Boxing.

​The research also enabled us to create standardised scores in which we fedback strengths and areas for improvement. This led to some of the boxers taking part in an extended strength and conditioning program, with boxers taking part in 2-3 sessions per week. Following the 10-week block, we performed the tests again to record improvements made. 

​This gave us more information that we wanted to share with the world. Therefore, we launched Boxing Science - The World's First Website for Sport Science in Boxing. 

Boxing Science got off to a great start, with thousands of views, links with Boxing News and a growing audience. 

​This attention helped us attract new consultancies, starting our 1-1 packages with Professional boxers Adam Etches, Jordan Gill, Sam Sheedy and Kyle Yousaf.

​We also developed links with England Boxing, and together we set up the first ever sport science training program for a regional amateur association with Yorkshire Boxing. International, National and Regional amateur champions took part in a 25 week sport science program at Sheffield Hallam University. The program was part-funded by Yorkshire Boxing, which halved the price for 20 young, aspiring boxers.

Our social initiaves are to make sport science available to youth athletes at an affordable price. We were fortunate to secure funding from the Hallam Student Union, in which we invested in sponsoring amateur boxers and youth training programs. The stand-out event is when we hosted the Summer Youth Training Workshop where we hosted 10 young boxers for a week of educational and practical sport science sessions.

We kicked off 2016 with the launch of the Accelerated Performance Series - a free 10-week sport science educational program accessed by over 1000 subscribers. We recieved excellent feedback, and we can't wait to hear what you think of our remastered version. 


2016 also saw the return of Barry Awad, otherwise known as Kid Galahad. Since May, we have provided Barry with ful sport science support with strength training, movement drills and high-intensity conditioning. Three warm-up fights prior to his assualt on the Featherweight world scene.

The highlights of our year came over the summer when supporting Kell Brook in his quest for greatness by taking on Gennady Golovkin. Despite GGG being much feared in his own weight division, Kell was willing to jump up two-weight divisions to take on the 'Kazahk Thunder'. We implemented a detailed and well-structured sport science program to help Kell become a better athlete at Middleweight. Despite losing, Kell did himself and the UK proud in giving Golovkin his hardest fight to date by troubling him with silky skills, blistering combinations and a high-pace. 

Late 2016 saw us launch our first electronic program 'Train Like A Champion' - five handbooks on strength, movement and fitness training, as well as nutrition, testing and programming guides. The program has been hugely successful and been delivered worldwide, with people able to access Boxing Science from Australia, Mexico and USA.
