WATCH: Olympic boxer challenges BJJ champion to submit him 5 times in 6 minutes

Tony Jeffries is a former professional boxer from England. He was born on February 2, 1985, in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Jeffries had a successful career as an amateur boxer, winning a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, representing Great Britain in the light-heavyweight division.

After his amateur career, Jeffries turned professional in 2009 and had an undefeated record of 9 wins, with 1 draw. He competed primarily in the super-middleweight division. However, due to persistent hand injuries, Jeffries retired from professional boxing in 2012.

Since retiring from boxing, Tony Jeffries has transitioned into coaching and entrepreneurship. He co-founded the successful boxing fitness company Box ‘N Burn Academy in Los Angeles, where he currently resides. Jeffries is known for his expertise in boxing training and has trained numerous professional athletes and celebrities. He also shares his knowledge through his podcast and social media platforms, providing valuable insights into boxing and fitness.

He’s also an active youtuber and has trained BJJ for a while.

Jeffries tapped Roberto Cyborg Abreu back in March to appear on his channel but then decided to delay the video in the fall out from IBJJF suspension.

Abreu seems largely unapologetic about his PED use.

And apparently the heat has gone down substantially enabling Jeffries to post his challenge.


To no surprise, Cyborg was able to finish Jeffries over 20 times in 6 minutes, however it appears as though they didn’t do the typical reset so that number is also more of an interesting note.

Cyborg is an advanced level grappler, and he certainly has what it takes to submit an Olympic level boxer but it’s interesting to see a public figure decide to associate himself with Cyborg despite their coverup controversy and even this latest PED use scandal.
