Leading up to the July 5 ’14 event, world-ranked heavyweight fighter Brian “The Beast” Minto worked with Boxing Alley trainer and respected coach Chris Martin in preparation for his main event bout against NZ heavyweight champion Joseph Parker. Chris has an extensive history in the ‘sweet science’ having coached elite fighters such as David Tua, Daniella Smith, national champions and Olympians.
“The Greek” & “The Beast”
As well as helping Brian prepare for his bout against Joseph, Chris also worked with up-and-coming kiwi boxer Nikolas “The Greek” Charalampous. You may recognise Nik from his win, and display of skill, against Rico Chong Nee on the undercard of ‘Tua vs. Ustinov’.
