Exciting Young Unlicensed Boxer


Brandon Short

Brandon Short is a unlicensed 19 year old former Kickboxer now turned boxer who can fight at welter or light welterweight. The 6 foot 2 southpaw has a perfect boxing record of 5 fights 5 wins. Brandon will be fighting for his first boxing title on “The Night of Champions” show promoted by Showdown Entertainment on the 2nd September. When Brandon was a Kickboxer he had a very impressive career of 58 fights 53 wins 3 draws and only 2 defeats, Brandon also managed to win 2 world titles. Brandon has been kickboxing for 5 years and changed to boxing 2 years ago, Brandon told me “with my kickboxing and boxing training I have basically been boxing for 7 years”.

Brandon boxes out of Saxon gym and is trained by Tyler and Allan Shakespeare and is part of team Saxon for the Showdown show.

Brandon’s favorite boxer is Carl Froch because of his determination to be the aggressor

and dominate every fight. I asked Brandon about what his favorite fight that he has seen is? Brandon told me “I don't know about the best fight I have seen but not to long ago I watched Sean Dodd jump in very late and got thrown and I really liked that, I guess I like the underdog to win.

I asked Brandon what had inspired him to take up the noble art? Brandon told me “I just wanted something to focus on to stop me his me making the wrong decisions in life, well I say me my parents wanted me to and I always liked to fight”.

Brandon informed me his hardest fight was as a Kickboxer against Steven Raybould for the commonwealth title. He told me “he had a very good engine and kept coming forward for the whole 5 rounds”.

Dexter’s Thoughts

Brandon is a young boxer who has got some good trainers behind him. He is going for his first boxing title on the night of champions show promoted by Showdown Entertainment. Brandon has got a hard fight against a quick handed champion Sher Fiaz, but his unbeaten record and his kickboxing experience behind him he could just shock a few people and be the new Showdown promotions welterweight Champion.
