Billy McAllister

Billy McCallister (boxing) will make his Commonwealth Games debut at the Games in Birmingham. After Billy secured a place on the 2022 Commonwealth Games team, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Jarrod Fletcher lent him his gold medal from Melbourne 2006 to inspire the Brisbane fighter to achieve his best in Birmingham where he will contest the light-heavyweight (80kg), the same division that Tony Madigan won back-to-back gold for Australia at the Cardiff 1958 and Perth 1962 Games. Billy originally took boxing classes in the football off-season to improve his fitness but eventually decided to change sports. He now trains at the Fortitude Boxing Club under Adam Copland, supported by former Australian-South African cricketer Kepler Wessels and Jarrod Fletcher. A rifleman in the Australian army, Billy loves to cook in his spare time, especially Italian food. Although he cites Kanye West as his favourite music artist, he often relies on AC/DC’s Hell’s Bells to psyche him up before a bout.
