Let’S go yeah man, let’s get her done all right.
Let’S, let’s talk about her lauren price um is a welsh amateur boxer, former kickboxer and footballer representing whales.
She won the bronze medal at the 2014 commonwealth games becoming the first welsh woman to win a commonwealth games boxing medal.
Four years later.
She surpassed this achievement by winning gold in the 20 2018 commonwealth games, followed by gold at the 2019 world championships, while representing great britain.
She won gold medals at the 2019 european games and this past summer she won gold at the olympics.
Uh yeah ma’am price also played football for seven years with cardiff city winning the inaugural season of the welsh premier women’s football league in 2013.
, uh having captain wales at under 19 levels.
She made her senior debut in 2012.
She gave up playing football in 2014 to focus on her boxing career um.
You know her boxing career price initially took up boxing as a teenager, but became further involved in the spark.
After watching british fighter nicola adams win the gold in the 2012 summer olympics in london and then after competing in one single amateur bout at 17, she entered the women’s european and youth world championship where she claimed a bronze medal and at the 2014 commonwealth game she Became the first welsh woman to claim a boxing medal, after defeating kate, scott, in the quarterfinals of the women’s middleweight division, to graduate at least or sorry, to guarantee at least a brawn, a bronze medal.
So here’s the thing she’s about to go pro uh.
You know it hasn’t been announced who she’s signing with yet she is definitely turning pro and it’s about it’s supposed to drop the skills that i could see from her um.
You can tell that she’s an athlete um, specifically that the full work is a soccer player.
Looking at her highlights she’s on her toes a lot um and then even like you know some boxers i mean for for amateur boxing.
You could stay on your toes for the three rounds.
It’S going to be interesting to see her make that transition to the pro level.
Where you can’t be on your on your toes for 12 rounds.
I mean you can, but it takes some extra cardio to to be able to do that which she should have that base from soccer being able to.
You know that that running for for 90 minutes straight right, so she um – you know it’s gon na, be interesting to see here if she can keep that up at the pro ranks, specifically the footwork um, the bounciness.
That’S that’s what that’s what’s look like! It’S uh! That’S helping her get by not get by, but you know she’s able to excel because of her great footwork um.
So yeah, it’s gon na be interesting.
