Biography

Jon is one of Britain's elite and known as Norfolk's own 'Rocky', he currently holds the European Lightweight Champion title belt and the coveted Lonsdale British Lightweight title belt. He boasts an impressive 42 professional fights with 33 wins, 19 of those being by knock out. This is made particularly more impressive when in 2002 Jon was forced to retire from the sport, thinking he wouldn't box again after being injured in a car accident. This though didn't stop him and in 2004 he made a very impressive comeback by winning the British lightweight title, he has since defended this twice. A very charismatic and motivational character, Jon would add influence and fun to any partnership event. His particular strengths are motivational talks, anti-bullying workshops and fitness through boxing practical.
