Blind amateur boxer prepares for debut fight – against fully sighted opponent



AN amateur boxer who is registered blind is ­preparing for his debut fight — against a fully sighted opponent.

Thomas Seres, 23, can see only 3ft in front of him due to severe congenital glaucoma.

Thomas is looking for a fair fight hoping his opponent 'doesn't go easy on him'

But the Rocky fan will take part in a charity bout next month, saying: “Losing is not an option.”

Thomas, who walks with a cane, said: “I’ve always wanted to box but didn’t think I could until I joined a boxing gym.

“I’ll give it my best in the fight — win, lose or draw. Boxing’s quite an up-close sport so that’s in my favour, but I’ll struggle seeing some of the punches coming in.”


Thomas, of Barnsley, who has a Level 2 boxing certificate, added: “I hope he doesn’t go easy on me for being blind.

“He’ll pay if he does. I have a knockout punch.”

Thomas is currently training three days a week and weightlifting on the other days to be as strong as possible.

He is fighting to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
