Featured Fighter :Michael Wakeling

Tell us a little bit about yourself how did you get into the sport and how long have you been training for ?

I am Michael Wakeling, a seasoned professional fighter with a career spanning 30 years. Starting from the age of 8, I have been active in the kids & adults circuit, honing my skills. Throughout my journey, I have earned three World Titles and achieved numerous National and European accolades.

How has your preparation for your next fight gone and what are your aims and aspirations for the rest of 2023 and the year coming  ?

I’ve been getting ready for CFS14 with James Toomey. Our preparation remains consistent—I always give it my all, putting in 100%. Originally scheduled to face Eddy Ruiz, he has been replaced by Alex Fernandez. I believe Alex is a formidable opponent with a strong drive for success. I’m excited to step into the ring and face him.
Fans can anticipate my trademark explosive fights that will keep them on the edge of their seats. I always deliver an exhilarating experience that leaves everyone enthralled.
Within this weight category and the one below, there are multiple fighters who offer thrilling matchups.. I embrace the opportunity to step into the ring with any of them. In the event that the aforementioned tournament doesn’t materialise, I would be eager to face Joe Craven, who currently holds the top spot in the UK rankings.

Lastly is there anyone you would like to thank ? 

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to James Toomey and the incredible team at JTT for their unwavering support. I am immensely grateful to my fiancé and two boys who have been by my side every step of the way. Additionally, I want to express my appreciation to my sponsors, whose invaluable support makes my fight camps possible.
