About MMA Boxx

Joe Varden Apollo Gym

Hey there! I’m Joe, the founder of MMA Boxx. I am originally from England but now live in beautiful Thailand.

I’m currently a Boxing Coach at Apollo Camp in Phuket, Thailand. My coaching journey began in Manchester, England, under the mentorship of the legendary Ricky Hatton, where I developed my skills and passion for coaching.

My recent move to Phuket is more less because I want to grow as a top-tier coach in the world’s combat sports training capital.

My approach to writing, like my coaching, aims to simplify complex combat strategies, offering insights that resonate with both fans and practitioners.

Combat sports are more than just my profession; they’re my passion and a significant part of my life. As I look to the future, my goal is to solidify my place as a leading coach in Phuket, continually learning and contributing to the success of my fighters.

My journey is about pushing limits, both in the ring and through my writing, to share my love and knowledge of the sport with a wider audience.

Through MMA Boxx, I’m inviting everyone to come together, share experiences, and grow in the MMA journey. It’s not just about the fights; it’s about the stories, the learning, and the friendships forged along the way.

Let’s go!
