On this episode of The Empire Boxing Podcast, host Jana Finkbiner is joined in studio by Artem Lypko, an up and coming boxer making his professional debut in July as a part of Empire’s RELOADED card. Artem is a native of Minsk, Belarus and now makes Vancouver, Canada his home where he trains at Beyond Boxing in North Burnaby with coach and manager Louis Sargeant, a former professional boxer himself… and someone with a lot of stories to tell. Artem started boxing at the age of 11 and quickly became part of the Belarus national team where he competed in numerous international competitions and won a Bronze medal at the European Championships. He is coming off an amateur career where he honed his skills by competing in over 35 bouts. Artem explains how tough the elite amateur system is in Belarus and how it helped mold him into the fighter he is today. He dives into his training methods, his thought process and how he is preparing for his first pro fight. You won’t want to miss this one as Louis keeps things warm while Jana tries to break through Artem’s stoic exterior in hopes of maybe getting a hug by the time the show is over. Spoiler Alert: She gets one. These two guests make an entertaining pair, so sit back, grab a drink and enjoy a little slice of boxing story-teling at its finest.
