My name is Chris Bourke, I am 22 years old and I have been boxing for 6 years. I am ranked 3rd in the country and I am a boxer for Team GB. I started boxing at Balham Amateur Boxing Club and when I am not in Sheffield with Team GB I still like to train there. I am not really into other sport so in my spare time I usually see friends and watch films instead of participating in any other sports.


How do you start your day?
On a typical training day, I would wake up, brush my teeth, have something light to eat and then head down to the track for a running session.
Tea or Coffee?
I do love a coffee, but occasionally when I feel I'm drinking too much of it, I'll switch to Matcha tea!
What are your latest comp results?
I boxed in the GeeBee tournament in Finland representing my country and getting a bronze medal, controversially closing on a close split decision to the Commonwealth Games gold medallist.

My previous tournament before this competition was in Macedonia where I boxed twice, and won both fights with first round knockouts (against Macedonia and then Serbia) and also got best overseas boxer of the tournament.
