Women’s boxing team train with England coach

Afewee women’s boxing team traveled to Portsmouth on Sunday 8 November to attend an all female training squad with England coach Q Shillingford. Senior boxer Urszula Kowalczyk was supported by head coach Bobby Miltiadous and women’s boxing coach Sara Bowden.

Kowalczyk was amongst over 40 girls from throughout the UK to attend the bi-monthly training squad at Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy, run by England Coach Q Shilllingford. Urszula sparred six rounds with three different girls, she described it as the best experience of her boxing career so far.

Afewee hope to add more women to their squads in the future and will support their development through trips like this!
