Vegan Boxer Takes Welterweight Champion Title

Timothy Bradley, who adopts a plant-based diet while training, is the latest WBO champion.

Plant-strong boxer Timothy Bradley has dethroned boxing star Manny Pacquiao as the reigning World Boxing Organization welterweight champion, ending Pacquiao’s seven-year run. In a controversial split-decision victory that has left many boxing fans reeling, Bradley took the title despite dissent among the judges about the outcome of the 12-round bout. Bradley, who ended the game with a fractured foot, is well known in the boxing community for his unorthodox training regimen—the 28-year-old routinely adopts a plant-based diet to prepare for his fights. In March, the boxer praised the diet’s impact on his performance, calling it the driving force behind his optimal physical health and mental clarity.
