A British multi-millionaire entrepreneur continues to surprise in new boxing path that has seen him end 2017 in excellent form as a fighter.
34-year-old Joe Fournier in his day job is a night club tycoon in the UK who continues to prove that he is an all-rounder outside of his successful career.
Sports seem to come well to him as it happens.
He represented his country in basketball before injury blighted that interest, but now as a professional boxer, he recently went 8-0 as a professional.
In fact he has now even earned a top ten ranking in the world reportedly. Speaking to the Mirror after beating Antonio Sanchez by TKO, Fournier said:
“We had a bottle of beer then it was back to the hotel as I had to catch a flight at 5am.”
His busy lifestyle makes his professional boxing exploits highly impressive so far. Out of his 8 wins he’s stopped all of his opponents inside the distance too – since turning pro back in 2015.
It isn’t really clear what his aspirations in the sport are as of yet.
By all accounts he was just in it for fun at the start but now with a top 10 ranking the light-heavyweight division looks like it will have an unexpected contender on the fringes next year.
Fournier is known to be very good friends with David Haye so don’t be surprised if you see him fighting on one of Haye’s shows in 2018.
