Alex Winwood (boxing) will be looking to replicate training partner Andrew Moloney’s flyweight gold-medal success at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Australia’s only previous gold medal in the division. A proud Noongar man, Alex is the only indigenous boxer on the 2022 team – his grandfather is celebrated indigenous artist Primus Ugle – Alex grew up in Perth as one of eight children. He took up boxing at the age of 15, after encouragement from his high school teacher. He made his Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games where he suffered an unlucky split-decision loss to Zambia’s Patrick Chinyemba in the round of 32. Winwood turned pro in late 2021 and moved to the Gold Coast, linking up with Dragon Fire Boxing’s renowned manager Tony Tolj, who has also manoeuvred the careers of Commonwealth Games alumni twins Andrew Moloney and Jason Moloney.
