Ahead of his highly-anticipated next fight against River Wilson-Bent, Kukri Sports caught up with boxing ambassador Kieran Molloy to delve into his training camp, maintaining his unbeaten streak and the importance of mental toughness.

Exciting boxing star and Kukri Sports ambassador, Kieran Molloy, continues to impress on the professional stage.

In April, Molloy extended his impressive unbeaten record to eight fights with a hard-fought victory against Mexican opponent Sergio Garcia Herrera on the ‘Coming of Age’ card in Rotherham.

Despite facing adversity for the first time in his professional career, Molloy showed remarkable resilience and determination to secure a narrow 76-75 points win.

Kieran is next in action in GBM’s Into the Fire in an action-packed night of boxing, starring in a welterweight contest against River Wilson-Bent on Saturday 29 June at Coventry’s Sky Dome Arena.

With his focus now firmly set on his next bout, the 25-year-old Irish fighter emphasises the importance of meticulous preparation in his success so far. “We train extremely hard to get into & stay in good shape all year round at Loughborough University.

“My confidence comes from preparation. If I know I’ve given everything and haven’t cut any corners, I’ll be mentally in a good place when it’s time to compete.”

Molloy also sheds light on his rigorous training schedule and the invaluable support network pushing him in the right direction.

“I’ve been fortunate to spar with former world champion David Avanesyan ahead of my fight,” he reveals. “Avanyesyan is also training for his own world title shot next month, so it’s been a fantastic learning experience for me.”

Describing a typical training week, Molloy details a blend of technical work, strength and conditioning, and strategic sparring sessions. “On Monday, Wednesday and Fridays they have been heavy sparring days, followed by interval sprints in the afternoon. Tuesday and Thursday tend to be more technical work in the mornings, followed by weights and conditioning in the afternoon.

“Diet and nutrition are obviously very important. I work with a fantastic nutritionist, Max Haskell, who has been helping me with my meal plans for training camps.”

Looking ahead to his upcoming fight, Molloy expresses his desire to showcase his full repertoire of skills. “I’d like to show a bit more of my boxing ability and when the openings come to let my hands go, I’ll take them.”

Everyone at Kukri wishes Kieran the best of luck ahead of his next fight on Saturday 29 June.
