Darren Wilson is a highly successful Welsh trainer. He is one of the men behind the success of Nathan Cleverly, having been in the corner for Cleverly’s successful World title bid against Jurgen Braehmer in Germany as well as his clash with Badou Jack on the undercard of Mayweather vs McGregor.
Darren has spent time in Los Angeles and rubbed shoulders with some of the greats of entertainment including Sir Tom Jones and Mickey Rourke but he still stays true to his roots in South Wales.
He is the figurehead behind the Beach Warrior’s 5-mile challenge, which takes place on Sunday, May 13.
The event will take place on the outstanding 5 miles of sand known as Pembrey Beach and will include a BBQ, licensed bar as well as the 5-mile obstacle course based challenge.
“I loved working with Nathan and I’m proud to have achieved what I have with him. He’s been a fantastic servant to Welsh sport and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of his journey.
“I was sat on the plane on the way back from Las Vegas after the Badou Jack fight, and thought to myself, what can I do for my local area to give back and also provide good entertainment at the same time. That is where the Beach Warriors idea was born.
“Beach Warriors is for everyone, it is a testing but more importantly fun challenge that is open to all genders and ages. It will be great entertainment too and a full day of fun everybody in the South Wales area!”
Brett Johns the UFC star lives a stone’s throw from Pembrey and Darren has had a massive input on the Bantamweight star’s career.
Speaking about his relationship with Johns Darren said:
“Brett is a class act who is continuing to get better. I’m expecting Brett to put on another excellent performance as he works towards a UFC World title shot.
“Brett is excited about the Beach Warriors event. He loves his community and always comes out to support events like this. No matter how far his MMA career goes, he will always respect and love where he comes from.”
