Women's boxing is on the rise and it's women like Amy Andrew spearheading the sport. She's helped so many of us overcome our barriers and now we want to give something back to our incredibly talented, dedicated, hard working, kind and supportive coach.
On the back of her tremendous work ethic, Amy Andrew now has the opportunity to represent New Zealand at the AIBA Women World Championships in India in November. This opens the door to so much on a world stage - the sky is the limit.
Getting to India and to the fight camps that she needs to perform at this extremely high level costs money. We don’t believe money should be a barrier for someone who has given so much to the sport and who deserves this opportunity. Our goal is to raise £1,000 for Amy to help towards flights and expenses, so that she can completely focus on the fights ahead. Amy is one of the rare few people whose work ethic matches their dreams of success - let’s help her to make those dreams a reality!
Amy loves the sport and is a truly committed representative for women’s boxing, raising funds for This Girl Can Box and anyone that knows her is incredibly grateful for her knowledge, her experience and her pure kindness. If you get the chance, listen to her talk about boxing and we dare you not to be motivated. She wants to win but it goes further than that: she wants to be the best and she has an incredible ability to enthuse and support others to also be the best they can be.
Boxing has long been a
male-dominated sport but women are starting to make waves at all different levels
of the sport, from white-collar events up to professional bouts. We are lucky to have a truly inspirational
coach and friend like Amy who has worked tirelessly with so many young women and girls
to support and encourage them in their journey to the ring. She opens doors for others and we want to help push open this one for her. We are incredibly proud of her and feel she's one of the game changers of women's boxers and we feel well lucky to be able to see her grow and develop and learn all the things from her.
Amy’s story is quite unique: formerly a journalist, she started boxing in 2014 by signing up to a white-collar fight for charity. Since then, Amy has trained with a number of boxing clubs across London and is now a Level Two England qualified boxing coach, coaching in several high-profile boxing gyms. She is also a three-time winner of the Haringey Box Cup!
Let’s help her to make these boxing dreams a reality!
