A former professional boxer joins Battle Buddy UK as an ambassador.
Ross Burkinshaw, pictured above has won several titles including the British Boxing Board of Control English flyweight title.
When Sheffield’s Ross Burkinshaw was a serving soldier, British Army rules wouldn’t let him become a professional boxer- so he got the rules changed.
He is now the first serving soldier granted permission to be a professional boxer and earn two wages.
Due to his story of determination he has his own book– where like his career in the ring, his autobiography doesn’t pull any punches.
It’s brutally honest about everything from struggles with depression to dining with royalty.
We are so delighted to have him join our team and thank him for being so honest about the struggles he’s faced as a veteran.
Battle Buddy UK has grown drastically in the last two years and we can’t believe we are so close to fulfilling our dream in securing a rehabilitation centre for our veteran community.
