Boxer Lani Daniels says wearing gloves is a great way to control her weight

Boxer Lani Daniels says wearing gloves is a great way to control weight.

Daniels moved from fifth to third in the World Boxing Association women’s light heavyweight rankings with her victory last month at Lake Karapiro against amateur champion Tinta Smith.

The Covid pandemic meant few fighting opportunities following her loss in a world title fight to Brazilian-born New Zealander Geovana Peres in 2019, which meant extra practice to get back into ring gear.

“The goal of getting back into it was about my weight because I started getting a little complacent and eating more than working out, so I called my trainer, he’s based in New Lynn, John ‘the rebel’ Conway, and I literally camped there for the duration,” Daniels says.

She doesn’t want to lose her momentum and is ready to fight again
