Remembering the Uniquely Gifted 19-Year-Old British Boxer Jude Moore
The death at age 19 of a Bristol amateur boxer who was described as “uniquely talented” has been reported.
Uniquely talented Jude Moore, a boxer who had been active in the Fishponds community and who had been a regular at Downend Boxing, was found dead on Friday, his family said.
Just before his untimely death, Jude had defeated the Polish national champion in his maiden senior bout by knockout. He was scheduled to fight in Milan this week.
Trainer Craig Turner called him “immaculate” and “by far the best boxing talent that emerged” from Bristol.
Jude’s father and uncle encouraged him to take up boxing, and he went on to become a two-time national champion.
About a year ago, he left the Bristol club to train at Sab Leo’s Hoddesdon Boxing Academy in Hertfordshire.
The Next Big Thing
“Nothing any of us did specifically led to the improvement of that skill. It was exactly his style, individuality, and character “Thus, Mr. Turner remarked.
Only one existed, and it’s a shame we’ll never get to see him reach his full potential, but there was only ever one.
As a 14-year-old in 2018, shortly after being the 2017 England Boxing School Champion, Jude was featured in an interview with BBC Radio Bristol.
In discussing the topic at the time, he declared, “No matter what, my heart will always be in this sport.”
According to Mr. Turner, Jude not only possesses “immense” talent, but he is also eager to pass on his knowledge to aspiring young fighters.
“Everyone respected him as a leader. He seemed to fit in seamlessly with people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. For some reason, he enjoyed engaging in conversation so much. You had no chance of stopping him “And he went on to say.
“Entertainment was his calling card, and boxing is show business. Because of this, I have no doubt he would have eventually been a world champion.
“He was quite sensitive and loved being around others.
“As far as he was concerned, everyone was on his side. The man was flawless.
“Bristol boasted not just Glenn Catley, the former world champion at super middleweight, but also Lee Haskins, the former IBF bantamweight champion (in Jude).
It was inevitable that “there would be no room for doubt.”
Jude’s family consists of his parents, Mark and Carla, and brothers, Ethan and Beau.
The passing of Jude Moore is a heartbreaking loss for the boxing community, his family, and all who knew him. His talent, dedication, and character were truly unique and he had the potential to become a world champion. His passion for the sport was evident from a young age and he was a natural leader who inspired others to follow in his footsteps.
Despite his young age, Jude’s accomplishments were impressive, and he had already made a name for himself in the boxing world. His trainers and fellow boxers admired him not only for his skills in the ring but also for his genuine and engaging personality. He was someone who cared deeply about his community and was always willing to lend a helping hand.
It’s hard to imagine what could have been if Jude had been given more time to pursue his dreams, but we can take comfort in knowing that he left an indelible mark on the sport and the people he touched along the way.
