In the ring and during training sessions, Tibo Inshape does not benefit from any preferential treatment. Here, everyone is on the same scale. It is also partly for this reason that he chose this recognized club before his first amateur fight scheduled for June 7.

“I only see him as a boxer”

The YouTuber, who is one of the most followed personalities in France, has tried out in several structures and associations in the region. But he chose the Blagnac Boxing Club for its values: “I contacted Maamar and asked him to do a test. They immediately offered me opposition. That’s what really appealed to me,” admits Tibo Inshape.

The training sessions here are tough. Sparring hurts. But no one is complaining. This is also the DNA of one of the most famous boxing clubs in France. “There is no distinction! There is as much respect for the 8 year old kid who comes to train as there is for Tibo Inshape. When he arrives, I only see him as a boxer, not as an influencer,” argues the trainer.

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth

Away from the ring, where the aspiring boxer is warming up, Maamar admits to being surprised by the young man’s work ethic. Sometimes, he has to slow down altogether for fear that the YouTuber will get injured or be too tired: “I’ve rarely seen that… His addiction to sport is obvious. At this level, it almost worries me because I never know when it will stop,” explains the coach.

His partners who train with him don’t play puppets either. Tibo Inshape regularly rotates with Nabil Taïder, a solid former Ligue 1 defensive midfielder who trained at TFC. The former footballer also pulls out all the stops. “Here we don’t give him any gifts. We have no right to lie because in the ring on the night of the fight it will be much worse,” insists Maamar.
