At the age of 32, Anthony Fowler, a highly-successful amateur and professional super welterweight contender, has decided to retire from boxing.
Fowler, a holder of the Commonwealth Games title and an Olympic bronze medal, was beaten by Janibek Alimkhanuly in the first round of the Rio 2016 Olympics prior to turning professional in 2017.
But that adversity stood him in good stead. Fowler won all of his initial nine fights, but then was defeated in a split decision by Scott Fitzgerald. Nevertheless, Fowler was able to get back on track with another streak of six wins.
A big domestic fight then followed when Fowler faced Liam Smith. Fowler was competitive only to be defeated by a TKO in the eighth round.
His final fight came in 2022, with a decision win over Lukasz Maciec. Post his boxing career, Fowler has been keeping himself occupied.
He set up his company, SupremeCBD, in 2018 to cater for CBD-users. And the clientele has grown with impressive backers such as former football players Dean Windass, Chris Kirkland and even John Hartson.
“I first started using CBD in 2017 and I was really passionate about it, so I began working with a company that was manufacturing CBD oil products just a year after that. I found that a lot of customers were looking for a more potent formula so I decided to create my own brand.
“We tried over 20 formulas before we found our most potent blend of CBD in America, and called it SupremeCBD. We then came out with the 24000mg CBD oil, which was some of the strongest on the market at that time,” Fowler
I’m now officially retired, big thanks to everyone who’s helped and supported me in my career, it’s a tough tough sport an I respect every fighter and you all should too, I’m excited for the rest my life watching my gorgeous family grow up ❤️ pic.twitter.com/5BtMYGRocy
