Dariush Black


I am Dariush Black, I am 26 years old and from Edinburgh, Scotland. I started boxing at 13 years old and competed from this age until 20 years of age. In this space of time I had 18 contests. I had to stop competing and lower my training intensity due to a knee injury which was highly inhibiting until I had it treated. Following my knee recovery I made the transition in to coaching which was originally a hard adjustment. However, I have fortunately found coaching to be ultimately more enjoying and rewarding than competing. I am passionate about influencing younger generations through boxing as it has done so much for me. I also thoroughly enjoy developing talents of older and more experienced competitors as well as encouraging people to maintain and improve their fitness levels which can improve their overall well-being and state of mind.

1st Class BSc Hons degree in Sports and Exercise Science. A - HND Sports coaching Sports leadership award Level 1.1 football coaching.

I achieved 12 wins in my amateur boxing career. Previous to boxing, I also completed in judo where I obtained a gold and bronze medal. I have also competed in regional basketball and football tournaments.

Fluent in both English and Spanish
