BOXING - Glynn to fight for Great Britain at inaugural World Boxing Cup

Solihull Editorial 13th Jan, 2024   0

ELISE Glynn, from Solihull, is hoping to achieve a place in the Olympic qualifiers later this year with a strong performance in the inaugural World Boxing Cup.

Glynn will fight for Great Britain at the World Boxing Cup: GB Open – Sheffield 2024 which takes place from January 17 to 20 at the English Institute of Sport.

And featherweight Glynn hopes to achieve Olympic qualification and inspire young girls to take up the sport over the course of the year.

Glynn said: “Training is going really well, I’m training hard for three sessions each day, I’m excited to get going.

“We never really get to box in England on home soil, we’re always international, boxing in Sheffield where we train will be great.

“I want to show what I’m capable of on the international scene, I can’t wait to hopefully put on some good performances and get picked for the qualifiers.

“My aims for the year are to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympics, get as much international experience as possible and inspire as many young girls as possible to enter the sport and engage with boxing.”

More than 100 boxers from 16 countries will take part in the event which is only the fourth elite, multi-nation, Olympic-style boxing competition to take place in Great Britain since London 2012.

The tournament acts as one of the final tune-up events before the upcoming Olympic boxing qualifier in Milan (4 – 11 March) later this year where Paris 2024 spots will be up for grabs.
