Danny Quartermaine’s quest to bring world titles to Leamington

Leamington Editorial 22nd Dec, 2023 Updated: 22nd Dec, 2023   0

During this time of the year when the nights draw in and the icy winter winds blow, most people are getting ready to down tools and enjoy the festive season with their family indoors. Danny Quartermaine is the exception with the super featherweight boxer braving the elements by sticking to a rigorous training schedule as he continues his dream of winning a world title.

A dream worth chasing

The rewards at the top of boxing nowadays are certainly worth passing up a pig in a blanket in favour of a ten-mile run. You only need to look at the purses being handed out at the ‘Day of Reckoning’ event in Saudi Arabia to get a better idea of this. Astonishingly, British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua is set to rake in £15 million for his fight against Otto Wallin irrespective of whether he loses, although this is a scenario not predicted to happen if the latest boxing betting odds are to go by.

The most recent Joshua vs Wallin odds price the Brit as just 1/4 to beat his Swedish opponent. Regardless of how Joshua gets on in Saudi Arabia just 48 before Christmas, the wider point is that the riches at the top of boxing are worth chasing and staying disciplined for if you’re an aspiring champion.

Of course, Quartermaine is more than that after going ten fights unbeaten in his professional career so far.


Start as you mean to go

The 26-year-old’s wins have shown how determined he is as he dominates his opponents from the opening bell. With Quartermaine’s bouts set for just four rounds as he finds his feet in the professional ring, it’s clear to see that the super featherweight is leaving nothing to chance as he seeks the approval of the ringside judges immediately after touching gloves with his rivals. So far, six of Quartermaine’s wins have come by way of points while he has recorded four stoppages.

It’s a smart way of going about his business given that you can’t be crowned a world champion in the infancy of a career but you can lose the opportunity to become one with an early blemish on a record.

After racking up an undefeated record since his professional debut in February 2020, these are truly exciting times for Quartermaine with the world at his feet.

What next?

Quartermaine will now look to secure an English title in 2024. From there, the 26-year-old will target a British title fight and if he manages to pass that test, then a spot on the international stage awaits as Leamington goes toe to toe with the best super featherweights in the world. After witnessing the boxer’s unwavering dedication to greatness, it seems a matter of time before the world learns his name.

Cleared for take-off

Indeed, Quartermaine, who diligently documents his progress on Instagram, often posts videos of himself running through Leamington’s wintery landscape to the soundtrack of Rocky Orchestra’s Gonna Fly Now Soon.

The truth is that if he carries on sacrificing short-term comforts as he chases his long-term goal, Quartermaine will soon take off into the rarefied atmosphere of professional boxing.
