About Baz

“Baz is a great man and he inspires enormous admiration” Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire Police & Crime Commissioner

“Baz has the ability to make you feel you are not the only one going through whatever turmoil’s going on” Johnny Nelson, longest reigning Cruiseweight World Champion

Marcellus Baz BEM knows no limits when it comes to helping others through his passion of boxing.

Accessible to all ages, backgrounds and levels, Marcellus, known to most as “Baz”, has created an all inclusive environment for everyone to discover and learn all that the sport has to offer.

From ex-offenders to those with simply an interest in boxing, Baz can offer professional first class training and preparation at one end, through to an introduction to boxing that has already been proven to change an individual’s pathway in life.

Through cemented partnerships with local authorities and other organisations, Baz does not shirk the challenge of those who need more than just a boxing lesson. However, all assistance is underpinned with reporting and where necessary safeguarding measures to ensure that any help given is aligned to their own future development.

Being awarded the BBC’s Unsung Hero award in 2016, together with a British Empire Medal for services to youth boxing and the community in Nottingham, was an affirmation of all the hard work, commitment and passion that Baz brings to the table. But meet him on the street and there is no-one more grounded, honest and humble.

Having faced the toughest of adversity Baz wants to talk about you. What do you need ? How can he help? The story of why Baz is more than qualified to ask these questions is best left for him to explain himself.
