HEAD COACH

With over 19 years of Boxing and martial arts experience, Arvind ‘The Juggernaut’ Lalwani is the Head Coach and Owner at Juggernaut Fight Club.

Having represented Singapore both at Amateur level and earning top honours since 2000, Arvind has gone on to become a household name in the local Boxing fraternity with his appointment as National Coach to the Singapore National Boxing team in 2009 and recently again in 2011 till present day. To date, he has trained multiple medal winners in both local and International competitions, as well as the best local professional fighters in the country.

The Juggernaut’s no-nonsense style of training has been developed over the years from his early 2-month training stint in Atlanta Georgia with a former Russian Special Forces Boxing Coach, his own personal experience in the ring as the only Singaporean sparring partner for contestants in Season 4 of ‘The Contender’ and personal fight training regimes developed over his 10-year amateur fight career. In addition, Arvind’s passion for fight sports also saw him cross-training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling and Mixed-Martial Arts competitions. Arvind is still active in competitions and recently became the first Singaporean to win a Gold medal at an international Wrestling competition. He won the Gold medal at the pre Sea games wrestling championships, 120kg category.

Arvind made his Professional Boxing debut at the 2010 Mettle Games following a 6-week training camp at the world renowned 5th St. Gym in Miami Florida. Coached by Matt Baiamonte and Muhammed Ali’s own trainer Angelo Dundee, Arvind experienced a world-class training programme that inspired him to challenge himself further both in and out of the ring.
