Clinton David is all set to lock horns with Niraj Kumar at Club Fights: Deccan Conquest II on January 24, 2021, at the LBS Boxing Arena in Hyderabad, India.
The showdown between Clinton and Niraj will be one of the attractions on the card which will be headlined by Savio Michael and Vantaddu Vinod. Clinton, who sees this as just another boxing match, revealed that he is looking for an early stoppage when he steps into the ring.
“My fight with Niraj is just another boxing match. I’m looking forward to winning and show my game and if possible I am looking forward to knocking him as soon as possible in my early rounds,” he said.
Born and brought up in the King Koti locality, Clinton hails from a humble background. His father was a former boxer when his mother was a beautician. It was his father’s dream to see Clinton as a boxer and his journey started when he represented Telangana in the Under-14 Nationals. He went on to represent the state at multiple junior level competitions and won medals as well.
The major hurdle for Clinton, however, has been financial stability.
“I come from a humble family and currently face a lot of hurdles. One major hurdle is financial sustainability. I do multiple jobs to make ends meet. It's my passion in the sport and my dad's dream that is keeping me alive in this sport,” he added.
Despite the hurdles, Clinton is optimistic about the future and he hopes to get better with each passing day.
“I believe in getting better everyday!. And my goals are mostly about upgrading myself and set new milestones in my career,” he says.
