Name: Antonia Kay
Occupation: Singer/ Songwriter
How did you get into the sport ?
Two years ago I felt stuck in life, and wanted to get inspired and do better for myself and make my family proud so I decided to start boxing to get out of that dark place I was in.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?
I see myself as a world champion travelling all around the world , hoping to have 5 albums by then and do well in the music industry and inspire people with my story.
Why do you love training at absolute MMA ?
Firstly because I have a coach who’s accomplished great things in the sport and is very inspiring to have someone like Pradeep teaching you the art of boxing . Secondly we have a very strong team . Everyone cares about each other’s improvement and that’s a great principal in boxing , you can’t get better on your own, when you go through hard times you need to pick each other up . Especially when you don’t have family around to support you it gets really tough, I see the team as my family and Absolute is my home.
What advice would you give to people to take up your sport?
If you wanna take up the sport of boxing is very important you love it and you have fun at training and stay dedicated and focused everyday. Make every training session count and never stay in your comfort zone always push yourself to do something you’re afraid of, something that makes your heart rate go up. Be mindful when practising and do the right thing… and if you decide you want something, never give up until you get it .
