What makes a great fighter from Glenn Rushton

Some food for thought from the great Glenn Rushton!

  • Think like a champ

  • eat like a champ

  • train like a champ


Glenn has mentored a young man into the face of Australian boxing ! He forged a young school kid who was getting bullied Into a Amateur boxer. That journey continued to progressing this young man into a quarter finalist at the 2012 London Olympics. After the olympics it was onto the professional ranks. This young man became known as the ”Hornet”. He made his professional debut in Melbourne 1st March 2013, winning by second-round TKO. In his 4th professional fight he won the Australian title by knocking out Samuel Colomban in under 2 minutes! The climbed continued as he moved into the world rankings by fighting 13 more fights against top 15 world rank opponents.

The day the country stood still and will be forever written in the history books.

The 2nd of July 2017 Jeff Horn beat the former 8 devision world champion Manny Pacquiao to become the WBO welterweight champion of the world! throughout this entire journey Glenn Rushton has been the mentor and trainer to Jeff! “Think like a champion, eat like a champion and train like a champion and you will be a champion”.

Glenn has helped me progress! Every day I am in the gym with him, he instills the champion belief in me. I have had up‘s and downs. Yes we all go down! But champions get up! like Glenn said “Think like a champion, eat like a champion and train like a champion”.

So if you have been “put on the canvas” in some way. Ask yourself...what would a champion do ?
