O’Toole Setting Sights On Commonwealth Glory

Unbeaten Sian O’Toole knows that in boxing activity is key, and the featherweight talent will fight for the second time this year on the BCB Promotions May 10th show at the H-Suite in Birmingham.

The 24-year-old from Droitwich continued her march up the title rankings, gaining more valuable experience on March 8th by defeating late-notice opponent Vaida Masiokaite in a competitive bout at the Hangar Venue in Wolverhampton.

Having already won the Midlands Area Featherweight Title in December and after dropping down to four rounds last time, the full-time teacher will head back up to six as she looks for win number five.

“Going back to a four-rounder felt more like my amateur days; it wasn’t easy to get an opponent in, but I was adamant I wanted to box, so I was grateful to Errol for making it happen. It was a good chance to use my feet and show the more technical aspects of my game that we have been working on in the gym. Vaida was a tough opponent, but I was proud of what I produced and showed I can do the gritty stuff as well as the skilled side of my boxing.

The former amateur standout only turned professional last September, and the woman’s game often sees major title opportunities arise early on in a fighter’s career. 

“I’m loving being active and boxing as much as I can. My time to box for another title will hopefully come soon, but for now, I am able to build up my record and experience. The Commonwealth title is a belt I have my eye on, and that would be a goal of mine next; it’s being contested this month, and I would want a shot at the winner.”

A full-time teacher, O’Toole trains at the BCB Gym in Wednesbury but has been putting in the miles of late, taking sparring opportunities with other unbeaten talents and pushing herself on evening runs.

“It’s great to see Errol and Paul get the credit now that they deserve; the gym is all about all levels being treated the same. It doesn’t matter if you are a European champion or a young amateur; everyone enjoys the environment. Getting female sparring is still not easy, so I have been willing to travel to get it, and that again is about pushing myself and not looking for an easy option. If you want to be a champion, you have to do things the right way.

Tickets for the show on May 10th are available now priced at £40 standard and £80 VIP ringside from the boxers directly or by emailing info@bcb-promotions.com.
