Manchester235 is proud to be supporting SportsAid athlete…
Three-time national youth boxing champion for England, Conner Tudsbury gets a crack at Team GB in 2019 when he turns Senior Boxer and is eligible for the Olympic squad.
The 18-year-old, who has won 65 of his 80 fights to date and was a bronze medallist in the 2018 European and World Championships, aims to take the national title again to clinch his place in the team going to Tokyo in 2020. His Caesars sponsorship helps fund that ambition.
Conner started boxing as a hyperactive eight-year-old when his mum signed him up for the Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club to help him stay out of trouble.
“I thrive on the rivalry in this sport,” he says. “It’s a constant reminder to always aim for the very top. Anthony Joshua is my sporting hero because I find his journey very relatable. He has remained humble despite his huge success and I hope to emulate that in my career.”
Conner is just one of the inspirational young athletes being helped by Caesars Foundation, the charitable arm of Caesars Entertainment, to fulfil their potential and bring Olympic and Paralympic medals home to Britain.
Since 1976, SportsAid has helped many of nation's most successful sportsmen and women, including Chris Hoy, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Ellie Simmonds and Bradley Wiggins.
We are proud to stand alongside the charity.
