MRSS are proud to sponsor Louie ‘Loco’ Lynn on his amazing boxing journey.
Louie started working for us in our Croydon Yard in June 2017. He was always a very dedicated and conscientious individual and it soon became apparent to all the Croydon staff how much dedication and passion he had for boxing. Louie would use every tea and lunch break to train and we even had a temporary makeshift ‘mini gym’ set up for him with his own slip ball and punch bag! (It’s surprising what a roll of netting and a foam wrapped fitting on a rope can do!)
In January 2018, Louie decided to follow his dreams by going full time and MRSS have been with him all the way on his extraordinary journey.
Here is an insight into our future champion!
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I keep myself to myself and live the life. I train like my life depends on it because it does! I love Jesus, boxing, my family, dogs, music and supporters. I don’t have much of a social life to be honest!
Who was your idol growing up?
My mum, because she brought me up and taught me morals and not to be a bully…and Scarface! I got a present when I was ten, a little action man of Tony Montana where you press a button and he says his sayings! I like the story of how he came from nothing and got to the top.
How did you first get into the sport of boxing?
My Mum took me to a gym in Hounslow when I was eight years old and I loved the way she always thought I’d be a good boxer. I started training at a gym in Folkestone when I was around nine or ten years old. Then I boxed for Crawley ABC and I had my first fight when I was eleven.
What allowed you to go pro and pursue your dreams?
A massive thank you to MR Scaffolding because they made it possible for me to turn professional and pursue my dream. I know a lot of boxers who struggle with sponsors and / or must work and train. Fortunately for me, and all thanks to #TeamMR, I have always been able to train full time.
I’m also very grateful that they supported me while I was out of the ring for fourteen months due to unforeseen circumstances out of my own control.
What’s your number 1 walk in song?
Recently it’s been Kariya – Let Me Love You for Tonight. But for my next fight, I’m having Liquid – Liquid is Liquid, which I had for my third pro fight.
If you could be in another profession what would it be?
I wouldn’t want to be in any other profession but if I was, I would want to be a world champion athlete.
What does the future hold for ‘Loco’?
I’m boxing on the 22nd February at York Hall on a great Frank Warren card and I can’t wait! It’s a step up in relation to my opponent. He has had nine fights with six wins and it’s also a six rounder.
Frank is building me up and I want to fight the best in the country and take their belts.
Long term, God willing, the future holds world titles in store for me. I know it’s not an easy road and it’s going to take everything I’ve got but I believe I can go all the way if I stay focused, keep giving my all and keep listening to my coaches.
