With over 30 years of experience, former IBF and IBO Junior Lightweight World Champion Gairy “Superman” St Clair is one of the most versatile boxing and fitness trainers in Australia today.
Born in Georgetown Guyana in 1975, Gairy began boxing at the age of 9, representing his native country of Guyana at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Canada. Later that same year, Gairy made his professional debut in Guyana. He went on to compete in 21 professional boxing contests in Guyana, America and Canada before moving to Australia in 2001 to continue his boxing career.
In 2006 under the guidance of legendary Australian trainer Johnny Lewis, Gairy went on to capture the IBF and IBO Junior Lightweight world titles from then five-time world champion Cassius Baloyi in South Africa. In 2007 Gairy proudly became an Australian citizen, an honour that he still holds more highly than winning his world titles.
Gairy won his final professional boxing bout in 2013 before retiring from professional boxing with a record of 60 bouts (46 wins, 2 draws, 12 losses). Gairy is regarded by many boxing experts as one of the most technically skilful and defensive boxers of his generation.
Since retiring from competitive boxing, Gairy has turned his skills to working as a boxing coach and personal fitness trainer. In 2014 he staged his inaugural Super Hero Fight Night amateur boxing promotion, which has become a highly successful event with no less than three events staged each year since.
With the opening in 2017 of his own gym in Gymea, Gairy St Clair Boxing Fitness, Gairy is committed to offering a premium service as a personal trainer and boxing coach.
From the complete novice to the experienced boxer, Gairy’s classes and training sessions are tailored to the individual.
Gairy strongly believes that teaching correct technique is fundamental to gaining the most from training sessions.
