In the world of Thai boxing, you hear the name Pele and you automatically associate it with one of the greatest Thai boxers to ever come out of Great Britain. Keith ‘Pele’ Nathan.
Pele has for many, many years opted to stay out of the limelight, preferring to be if you like a man in the shadows. He has carved for himself an absolutely tremendous career at world level in Thai boxing and then went on to create many world champions of his own.
From his Beastmaster gym in Altrincham in Cheshire, time and time again, men, women and children are honed to perfection with the skills that Pele possesses to become British, International and World Champions. There are students of Pele’s that hold as many as fourteen championship belts.
Pele has trained a number of World, European and British Champions like Frankie Hudders, Kevin Harper, Warren Brown, Ashley Guishard, Mary Hart, Lisa Howarth, Jonny Roye, Trisha McKeary, Gavin Sterritt, Steve Holt, The Riley Twins, Charlotte Thompkinson, Amy Thompkinson, Rebecca Maxwell, Pete Dwan, Richard Jones, Steven Jones, Richard Weston, Ewart Liburd, Leroy Atkinson, Morris Riley, and Glen Skellhorn.
Congratulations to Vicky Woulfe winning the UKMF English title against Lisa Brierly from St Neots in Telford at the weekend. Well done!
