Team Spotlight: Juggernaut Fight Club

Juggernaut Fight Club Started in May 2011 by Arvind ‘The Juggernaut’ Lalwani.

With over 15 years of Boxing experience, Arvind ‘The Juggernaut’ Lalwani is the head Boxing Coach and Technical Director at Juggernaut Fight Club.

Juggernaut Fight Club Founder:

Having represented Singapore both at Amateur level and earning top honours since 2000, Arvind has gone on to become a household name in the local Boxing fraternity with his appointment as National Coach to the Singapore National Boxing team in 2009 and recently again in 2011. To date, he has trained 55 medal winners in both local and International competitions with 40 Gold-medal holders.

The Juggernaut’s no-nonsense style of training has been developed over the years from his early 2-month training stint in Atlanta Georgia with a former Russian Special Forces Boxing Coach, his own personal experience in the ring as the only Singaporean sparring partner for contestants in Season 4 of ‘The Contender’ and personal fight training regimes developed over his 10-year amateur fight career. In addition, Arvind’s passion for fight sports also saw him cross-training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling and Mixed-Martial Arts competitions.

Arvind made his Professional Boxing debut at the 2010 Mettle Games following a 6-week training camp at the world renowned 5th St. Gym in Miami Florida. Coached by Matt Baiamonte and Muhammed Ali’s own trainer Angelo Dundee, Arvind experienced a world-class training programme that inspired him to challenge himself further both in and out of the ring.

Juggernaut’s humble beginnings
Long frustrated by the lack of competition opportunities and limitations on training programmes, Head Coach Arvind ‘The Juggernaut’ Lalwani decided to step out on his own and run a Fight Club the way it should be run; as a hard training, competition driven gym where emphasis is placed on the fighter and his or her goal.

Anything less than full commitment hurts desires and stunts dreams which saw a decline in performances from The Juggernaut’s trainees. His own professional fight career had been put on hold for want of opportunity. Politics and commercialism enshrouding the whole scene marred the essence of what fighting means – rising to challenges in pursuit of success. Push then came to shove and The Juggernaut decided to bring fight-sport back to its roots with Juggernaut Fight Club.

With the belief of like-minded supporters, Juggernaut Fight Club was created to right the wrongs of an extreme sports scene considered ‘complicated’. There is nothing complicated here, just a dedication to training and competitive excellence.
