Britain’s Worst Boxer to Reenter the Ring

East Tilbury, Essex – Robin Deakin is a 27-year-old boxer who has been competing since 2006. He has an impressive if not ignominious record of fifty straight losses in the ring. He also has an impressive 12 knockouts or rather has been knocked out that many times. Deakin has quite literally been moped across the canvass. If there is one thing he has going for him it is an indomitable spirit because he will be returning to the ring.

The boxer had actually lost his license to participate in the venerable sport of pugilism out of concern that the beatings he was taking were a threat to his safety. He found a loophole by getting licensed in Germany and plans to return to the ring on March 1. He believes he’s deserving of a title shot, but understand he probably will never get one. Really?

While his desire to enter the boxing ring is obvious, it is not clear if he has taken any boxing lessons. It is difficult to imagine how he could endure so many losses except to conclude he lacks any skill in the ring. Part of his problem may have been his willingness to step in for other boxers at last minute without adequate training and recovery time.
