Jacob Robinson Hoping to Follow in Father’s Footsteps
Jacob Robinson believes the relationship he has with his father and trainer will prove to be all the difference as he looks to go from strength to strength in 2019.
Robinson (4-0, KO2) is unbeaten in his career, and has a step up in competition when he returns against Jonny Phillips (5-1) on an MTK Global show at the Vale Sports Arena in Cardiff on March 1, live on iFL TV.
The Welsh prospect is trained by his dad, former world champion Steve Robinson, and Jacob is confident that the partnership will help achieve his goals in the sport.
Robinson said: “I listen to my dad and he believes in me. When I get that confidence, he says it will bring me to another level and make me a much better fighter.
“He’s been my trainer since day one when I started. We’ve got a great relationship and he knows me inside out. You can’t buy his knowledge and experience.
“My dad always says that the more relaxed you are, the less you heave your punches and you won’t get tired. He thinks the 10-round distance for me in the next few fights will be brilliant.
“I’ve got this fight with Jonny Phillips coming up and we’re working hard every day in the gym. I think this is the perfect fight at the perfect time for me.”
The event in Cardiff is headlined by an IBF European super-lightweight title fight between Akeem Ennis Brown and Bilal Rehman.
There are a number of exciting stars also on the undercard, including Jay Harris, Alex Hughes and Kieran Gething.
