The Write Uppercut

The man behind ridiculously punny ‘The Write Uppercut’ is Ollie Young, a sports journalism student. Introduced to boxing by watching Ricky Hatton take half of Manchester to Las Vegas for his valiant defeat to pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather. He lists Andre Ward as his favourite fighter of the last ten years, Muhammad Ali as the greatest ever and his tipping unknown Akeem Ennis-Brown to challenge for titles in the future. His favourite boxing memory was being present during what he calls ‘the greatest night in British boxing ever’ as Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitsckho at Wembley.
