After A Streak Of 51 Defeats, Britain’s Worst Boxer Finally Wins A Match





Frankly, I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of a loser as determined as this dude.

Robin Deakin has been aptly-nicknamed by many as Britain’s Worst Boxer and for valid reason. The guy has experienced a lengthy series of defeats – a total of 15 loses, if you want me to be a bit more specific – and yet he never once considered hanging up the boxing gloves. At one point, his boxing license was even confiscated for his own well-being.

Still, he remained undaunted and continued to pursue his sports career despite clear, obvious indication that he wasn’t built for it.

Robin Deakin finally won a boxing match against an opponent.

Last Saturday, he proved his naysayers wrong for, well, at least one match when he won a fight against Deniss Kornilovs, a boxer from Latvia.

Deakin’s last and only win as a boxer was back in 2006.

Deakin’s win against Kornilovs became official when he was declared victorious after the fourth round.

Since then, he’s been losing boxing fights for the 9 years straight already.

Despite all that, this guy never gave up. He obviously loved boxing way more than boxing could love him back. With this recent win, his record now proudly shows 2-51. So how does he feel about it?

He has truly regained his pride and he seems to be on a high horse right now, hoping to start challenging other fighters for titles.

Way to go, Robin! May the odds be in your favor from here on.
