Viral Powar Just Wants To Keep Learning

Gully Powar has gone viral for his Punjabi inspired ring walk, but it’s what happens in the ring that counts, and fight number ten will come on June 21st at the Hangar Venue in Wolverhampton on BCB’s ‘Pride Of The Black Country’.

The unbeaten 21-year-old is back boxing in his home city after his previous fight saw him take the short journey to the Bescot Stadium, where he headlined the show against Jose Manuel Perez, coming away with an impressive points win.

“Once again, I am ready to get the job done, said Powar. I took a big risk with my opponent in my last fight and got in there and did the business. The fight after me, Perez got a first round knockout of an unbeaten fighter, so that shows he was no walkover. I truly believe I am the next big thing to come out of Wolverhampton, but at my age, I’m still learning and still a baby in the game. My fitness was on point, as we knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I want to test myself, and we have matched with a lot of different types of styles, from come forward fighters to defensive types.”

The performance in the ring was excellent, but it was his now familiar Punjabi drum ring walk that has seen the video  of the super featherweight’s exciting entrance go viral with over two million views on social media.

“My profile in the Punjabi community has grown massively, and it seems a lot of people have enjoyed my style of ring walk. What’s been great is that it isn’t just people from Wolverhampton; now I am getting support and messages from people all over the world. I have to keep making sure I stay humble and be better every single time I step in the ring.

Powar trains at Richie Carter’s ever growing Wolverhampton Boxing Club, and the pair have been making some small tweaks and adjustments as this one draws closer. The gym was visited recently by former world champion and Hall of Famer Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini.

“Me and Richie spend a lot of time just talking about boxing, how to polish my style, and everything from the training and sparring is getting better and better. It’s good to learn from the veterans, and now it is on me to put on another show for my supporters.”

The event at the Hangar Venue is also set to feature Midlands champion Jermaine Osbourne-Edwards as well as the unbeaten trio of Danny Skidmore, Brandon Bethell, and Omarah Taylor.

Tickets for Pride of the Black Country are now available, priced at £40 standard and £80 VIP, from the boxers directly or by emailing
