Lauren Price and Karriss Artingstall discuss their collaborations and complementarities

Price aims to become multi-heavyweight world champion

Price, who won an Olympic gold medal at the women’s middleweight, has very clear ambitions for his future in the professional ranks.

“I checked all the boxes as an amateur and it felt like it was time to shoot,” she said. “My goal is to be a world champion, the undisputed multi-weight world champion, and do as much as possible on the professional team.

“It’s hard work, but it’s something Karriss and I haven’t done before. We train every Monday to Friday, it’s transplanted into place, and when you work hard, you can accomplish anything. »

Price has been sports-centric since he was a child, playing soccer and kickboxing since he was 8 years old.

She made 52 appearances for Wales, played football for Cardiff City and knew from a young age that she wanted to perform at the Olympics.

“Kelly Holmes was the one who inspired me to watch the Olympics when I was eight,” Price said. “I don’t know what sport I want to do, but I just know I want to play in the Olympics.

“In 2012, women’s boxing was introduced and that’s how to move on from kickboxing. I went to the local boxing gym and they sent me to Wales for the next team to train with the national team and then I got a chance to play The 2014 Commonwealth Games.

“I just took this opportunity with both hands and thought if boxing wasn’t for me, I could go back to playing football. But it did and I got a medal and went from there. »

Artingstall’s journey to becoming a professional player and his ambitions

Artingstall also started playing sports at a fairly young age, and did so after a difficult time in the education system.

“I started boxing and felt a little scared when I was younger. I was expelled from four different schools and didn’t get into any of the other schools,” she said.

“I joined a non-traditional school and they went to the local boxing gym every Friday. The coach said they saw potential, so I stuck with it and went three times a week.

“I also joined the army, so I found my calling. I’ve always been the kind of person who needs to be proactive. When I joined the army, I stopped boxing for two years and then started boxing again. »

Like Price, Attinstall returned from the Tokyo Olympics with a medal. She won a bronze medal in the highly competitive women’s lightweight. Artingstall, like her partner, is now very aware of her goals as a professional.

“I want to be dominant in the heavyweight bout that I ultimately decide to compete in. I’ll make my featherweight debut and possibly drop down to super-bantamweight, time will tell. I want to be the ruler.

“I don’t want to float between weights, I want to pick a weight and control that weight. I want people to look at me and say, ‘She’s the best in this weight class, she’s the girl to beat’.”
