Netherlands’ youth No.1 Cas Van Peer trains hard for Budapest to make surprises08 August 2018
Netherlands’ EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships bronze medallist super talented Cas Van Peer trains hard for the upcoming Budapest 2018 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships with his coach Mr. Waleed Shekho and planning to make surprises in the event.
Netherlands’ boxing life turned into a new era when their women star European Games winner Nouchka Fontijn has claimed silver medal in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and their men’s elite boxers achieved medals in the recent editions of the EUBC European Confederation Boxing Championships.
Cas Van Peer began boxing only three years ago but his technical skills are enough strong already to win international events. He is a tall boxer at the lightweight (60kg) who has done his career highlight in the last edition of the EUBC European Confederation Boxing Championships in Roseto degli Abruzzi where he claimed bronze medal. His father Mr. Andy Van Peer supports him since the beginning and the Budapest 2018 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships could be the next milestone in his career.
“My preparation is going very well. The time between the EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships and the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships gave me the opportunity to prepare myself the way we wanted to. We are focusing mainly on technical aspects and from a tactic point of view to also focus on short distance boxing because I am relatively tall at the lightweight (60kg).
I do a lot of sparrings with boxers from different heights and weights to prepare for different styles and all possible tactical issues before the start of the Budapest 2018 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships. My trainer is AIBA 3-star coach Mr. Waleed Shekho and we did not stop the daily training since the EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships except for one week of holiday.
We planned an international training camp but due unexpected circumstances it did not happen. I went with the elite boxers for a tournament to the Czech Republic where I have done sparrings with boxers from various nations.
I expect it will be one of the hardest AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships in the history as all boxers had to participate via qualification and that makes the competition very strong. I think everyone could be a serious rival in this AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships because we are all very motivated and it was not so easy to qualify for Budapest,” summarized Netherlands’ Cas Van Peer his preparation for the Budapest 2018 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships.
