Marcus The Wheelchair Boxer


I did modelling,
I did deejaying and I was six foot three and a bit. I was very complacent before. You know what I mean? And when I had my accident,
it made me want to do more. He’s got none of that
core stability,
but because he’s sort of not
allowed people to tell him what
he can and can’t do he manages
to find a way to do it.
His training regime is ridiculous. Monday – boxing,
Tuesday – in the gym, Wednesday – boxing and gym again, Thursday – rest, Friday – gym, Saturday and Sunday – my kids. Whatever the weather, I’m out there. You can. You try it. ‘And the kids that we’ve got coming
down, there are a lot of them, ‘they’ve not had that
attention from people, ‘especially from adult males
who actually care about them.’ He’s such a character
down there as well.
People love him because he’s
motivating and he’s inspirational.
That is my journey right now, is to make people be inspired. Beat it! Cos I’ve gone through what
I’ve gone through… ..it’s made me a different person. And I’m still learning,
I’ve got a long way to go, but I guarantee you that my journey
will be an awesome journey. And I will be known as Marcus
the wheelchair boxer.
