Lani Daniels’ Unexpected Path to Becoming a World Champion Boxer

View descriptionShare

Lani Daniels is a World champion boxer who holds the IBF heavyweight title and will this weekend aim to add the Light Heavyweight title to her collection, making her the first Kiwi woman in history to hold two world titles at different weights. 

In this episode we talk about her rollercoaster ride from Pipiwai to world champion, growing up with eight siblings, the tragic loss of her brother and the spiral of drinking, depression and guilt that followed, how she pulled herself out of that hole and discovered boxing, her intense training regime, path to the top and all the best stories in between. 

This was a really cool ep. Lani Daniels is authentically Lani. She’s a genuinely lovely person, with a gentle soul and infectuous laugh, who just happens to also be one of the best fighters in the world. 

Her path to the top was filled with adversity, discipline and support, and it’s a story everyone should hear.
