  • 2024 World Olympic Qualifier – Qualified

Born and raised in Sale, Pat began boxing at the age of seven at his father’s gym, Sale West ABC, before having his first amateur fight aged 11.

Early success through his amateur career has included winning two national ABA titles at senior level which earned him an assessment at GB Boxing to join the World Class Programme – which he successfully came through to join the WCP in March 2022.

Since being on the programme, has won an array of international medals including gold at the recent and inaugural World Boxing Cup: GB Open in Sheffieldf which included a ‘bout of the day’ performance against Nigeria’s Adam Olare in which Pat administered three standing counts on his opponent.

Pat’s performances on the international stage were enough to see him selected for the first World Olympic qualifying event in Busto Arsizio, Italy.

The heavyweight confidently won both of his opening bouts unanimously at the E-Work Arena before sealing qualification for Paris 2024 with another dominant 5-0 victory over Poland’s Mateusz Bereznicki.

Speaking after qualifying, Pat said: ““This is for my dad. I’ve done it for him, and I can’t wait to share this moment with him. He and my friends and family have come out here and supported each day and that, with all the support back home has not gone unnoticed and I’m incredibly grateful.

“I’ve only been on the GB Boxing programme a couple of years and the Olympics always seemed so far out for reach, but I always believe in myself, and I work hard, and I still can’t believe I’ve done it – it’s unbelievable.”

Pat’s hometown club is Moss Side Fire Station in Manchester where he is trained by Nigel Travis and Jamie Moore with the renowned duo having trained the likes of Carl Frampton, Jack Catterall and ex-GB Boxer, Chantelle Cameron.
