Broxton Emerging Silently on to the SFC Scene
Walking down Williamson Street in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, Chuck Broxton just wrapped up his training session at Ford’s Gym where he works on boxing with locals. His bread and butter, Hammer Time has become locally known for both his quick hands and almost unreal conditioning regemine.
It isn’t uncommon for students on the University of Wisconsin campus to wake up and see Chuck running repeated reps on Bascom Hill followed by a 3 mile swim in Lake Mendota, which is only a few jumps away. Every morning like routine… sun up… shoes on and out the door. Recently at the club he was approached and asked what is important to him most when it comes to training and he replied, “My conditioning… If you can’t last in the ring, you can’t last in the octagon. If you can’t last more than a round you won’t last with the best. Everyone gets hyped to be a flash knockout champion, but if you find yourself only training for that KO you will eventually run into a countering fighter that will simply wear you down.”
He quickly added, “I’m here to be the best and stay the best. Fight after fight. I’m not here for my one second in the sun, but to dominate. There is so much to every match and I will surround myself with people that can bring out the best in me time and again. It isn’t easy… But I like hard work… What you put in, you will benefit from.”
