Box clever - The Wayne Elcock way
Wayne Elcock is a proud Brummie who was determined to put Birmingham
on the boxing map when he turned professional in 1999. He did it and did it in
style and he is not finished yet.
His current record shows 19 wins from 23 fights. The four defeats all coming
at major title level. His impressive list of victories brought him the magnificent
British Lonsdale Belt, English and WBU and WBF World Middleweight titles.
What his splendid record doesn't show is how much the sport means to
him....how much respect he has for the Noble Art.
In his early days he was nicknamed " Mad Dog" and there was some
justification for it judging by his precarious lifestyle at the time. Today he freely
admits that boxing prevented him going down a dark and dangerous road
towards a lifetime of crime and wrong doing. Now he walks tall.
And Now he wants other Brummie youngsters to benefit from his sometimes
painful and bloody experiences......but experiences that have also brought joy,
happiness and fame but above all respect and discipline.
