I’m Brad Rea, MMU Sport scholar and first year Sport and Exercise Nutrition student
On Friday night I traveled to Bridlington for the 2016 NABGC Class C national finals.
I was up against Terry Conroy from Lansbury in London.
I knew he was a strong opponent so I changed the game plan and decided to hit and move for the first round.
After landing effectively with straight shots I then began to find my range in the 2nd & 3rd landing heavy uppercuts and switching the attacks down to the body.
After the 3 rounds I was crowned National Champion by unanimous decision.
I’m looking forward to a little rest over Christmas before getting back in the ring to represent MMU Sport at BUCS in February.
