Career highlight: French National Champion 2011
Strapping southpaw Mathieu Bauderlique is looking to achieve something he never thought would have been possible, if it wasn’t for the unique chance offered to him by AIBA Pro Boxing. The Frenchman, unbeaten as a professional, now has his sights firmly set on a coveted quota place for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Bauderlique boasts an unblemished record in the paid ranks where he has registered four stoppage wins in his nine fights since turning over in late 2011.
Despite his obvious power, the broad-shouldered Bauderlique does not look to impose his strength but instead relies on his boxing skills. He likes to pierce through an opponent’s defense with his jab before letting his hands go with swift combinations.
The former Algeria Desert Hawks fighter, who turned out for the franchise in WSB Season III, has been the six round distance four times and completed eight rounds on one occasion as a pro.
A gritty but graceful boxer, Bauderlique has buckets of skill and limitless heart. Undoubtedly, he poses as a major threat in the light heavyweight category.
