Cornelius Carr is the former BBBofC British Super-Middleweight & WBF World Middleweight Champion.
My boxing training began at the young age of eleven, and I haven't stopped since! I had a great amateur career, making the ABA finals and winning a Gold Medal for the England Junior Squad at age 18. Soon afterwards I signed up with Frank Warren and my professional career began. At that point, I'd had 43 amateur fights and won 40 of them! Over the next 13 years as a professional boxer I had 38 professional fights, and 34 wins before I decided that it was time to step out of the ring and become a coach. It was time to pass on my knowledge and experience to the next generation.
Career highlights -
1999 - Winning & defending the WBF World Super Middleweight Title.
1995 - Fighting The Celtic Warrior Steve Collins for the WBO World Middleweight Title! It was a close fight and the decision went Steve's way, but what an honour to share the ring with such a legend!
1994 - Winning the British Middleweight Title against the supremely talented James Cook. One of my proudest moments for sure.
Boxing has been my life for as long as I can remember. It's in my blood and I can't imagine life without it. Boxing training, like all great sports has the power to transcend the everyday. It not only makes us stronger, it makes us better.
