It was either down the hill to a life of crime or up the hill to the boxing gym.
Luton-born Jordan Reynolds decided he wasn’t going to follow the herd into a life on the edge of crime.
He worked as a baggage handler at London Luton Airport and worked extremely hard to get where he is today.
Following a very successful amateur career, in which he represented Team GB, 25-year-old Jordan turned ‘pro’ middleweight earlier this year.
Nicknamed the ‘Wanderer’, on Friday, March 12, he was matched against Southern Area title challenger Robbie Chapman.
The fight was broadcast live on ESPN from the University of Bolton Stadium, where Jordan came out the winner on a 60-54 points decision.
Jordan has signed with boxing promoters MTK Global Boxing, who think he has what it takes to go far in the sport.
