Welcome to the website of Professional Boxer George “Hit Hard” Hillyard.
Competitive sport is part of George’s heritage, as a young boy he maintained a glistening Football career playing for Leyton Orient, and West Ham but at sixteen George turned his back on Football to climb into the ring and follow in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather.
With an impressive tally of 39 wins from 49 amateur fights George turned professional in 2005 and continued to clock up the wins on an impressive boxing resume.
The birth of his son Oscar was a joyous occasion but also meant that tough decisions had to be made by George. His beautiful baby boy, born partially blind put George’s career on hold as the devoted dad changed focus and worked with the Doctors at Great Ormond Street hospital to provide the best care that he could for his young sibling.
But now at six years old and in good health the calling of the sport has George once again training hard and working towards some title fights.
This is his site, this is his journey, and we welcome you to be part of it.
