Ciaran Duffy

After 10 years as a competitive amateur boxer including regional and national title as well as international vests I decided it was time to change codes. In 13 professional fights, I gained much experience boxing against different styles in fights over 6, 8 and 10 rounds engaging in my fair share of hard fights along the way.


I finished my fighting career while on a 5-fight win streak as the reigning Scottish light middleweight champion. But, with long-running injury issues and a lack of imminent opportunities, I knew it was time to move on and before long I began to focus on what would become my second passion: the training/ coaching side of the sport.

Boxing never stands still only individuals do, and I strive always to be at the cutting edge of the sport. I currently manage and train a growing and exciting stable of professional boxers.


I also have a huge interest in introducing people to the sport I love and teaching them the basics as I was taught myself many years ago. I hope to enable every individual to enjoy their own experiences within the sweet science of Boxing.
