BOXING - O'Toole busy preparing for second professional fight next month

SIAN O’Toole feels ‘fitter and stronger’ as she prepares for just her second professional fight later next month.

O’Toole utilised her experience in the amateur ranks to dominate her first fight as a professional, winning all six rounds against fellow brit Amy Greatorex.

The Droitwich featherweight returns to the ring on Friday, October 20 at the Holiday Inn in Birmingham City centre.

O’Toole said: “Preparation is going really well, I had a week off after the last fight to rest and get my body back to normal.

“I’m just building on what I’ve already prepared for rather than starting all over again, it’s just about getting better.

“I feel like I’m fitter and stronger, I’ve gone back to work now which is tough trying to juggle that with being a full-time athlete.

“I’ve found a happy medium now where I’m still getting all the sleep and exercise I need, I’m still trying to adapt into the pro style.

“With each training session and each sparring session I feel like I’m getting that little bit better and I feel really good.”

O’ Toole fights out of Black Country Boxing, under the guidance of her coach Errol Johnson, while former British and Commonwealth welterweight champion and partner Frankie Gavin acts as a mentor.

She teaches maths at Bishop Perowne CofE College in Worcester alongside her pro career and is open to sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsorship would help O’Toole with her kit, training, travel and medical costs.

A number of sponsorship packages are available.
