Tiger Bay Boxing Club was originally founded by icon of Welsh boxing Pat Thomas in 1984, a champion fighter who has won multiple titles in two weights. After he retired from professional boxing in 1984, Pat worked as a trainer, helping amongst others Welsh future World Champion, Barry Jones.
Pat entrusted the legacy of Tiger Bay to mixed martial artist and Butetown local Wasim Said, who re-opened the club in 2018. His ambition was to create a space to coach and inspire young people and for the whole community to train.
