Project Description

Shiren

Shiren, 26, is originally from Singapore. She describes herself as a “nerdy” child who couldn’t tell her left from her right. After learning martial arts to try to improve her co-ordination, she started boxing age 21 and knew at once that she had found her thing. Learning to box has given Shiren confidence to tackle anything life throws at her. She has fought competitively 5 times, but these days she trains at Empire Fighting Chance three times a week just for fitness. Shiren also loves to bake and was given the fight name “Cup Cake” by her coach. While some people have been shocked by her choice of a traditionally masculine sport, Shiren feels that being a boxer, a woman and a good Muslim is all possible. “You can be a boxer and still bake, a woman doesn’t have to be just one thing…, you can be lots of things at the same time.”
