PETA to Jack Fincham: Be a Lean, Green Fighting Machine – Go Vegan!

Ahead of First Pro Boxing Match, Group Encourages Former Love Island Star to Knock Out Meat, Eggs, and Dairy

London – After learning that Jack Fincham has entered professional boxing and is preparing for his debut fight in early November, PETA has sent a letter to the former Love Island star with a winning suggestion to get him ready for the ring: knock out meat, eggs, and dairy and go vegan.

“With vegan meals, you have nothing to lose – and everything to gain,” writes PETA Celebrity Relations Manager Iona Kirby. “Elite athletes all over the world in every sport are eating vegan to get a competitive edge. Heavyweight boxers David Haye and Anthony Joshua champion a plant-based diet for its ability to boost their performance.”

In the letter, PETA points out that eating plant-based foods has been shown to improve blood and oxygen flow, helping to repair torn muscles and tendons for faster recovery from training and injuries. And vegan eating can help protect against heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and cancer. In addition to keeping light on their feet, boxers can also lighten their conscience by giving meat, eggs, and dairy the boot.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview – notes that in today’s meat industry, chickens, pigs, turkeys, and cows are crammed into filthy windowless sheds and wire cages, where they live and die in misery.

By going vegan, Fincham would join a growing group of athletes who eat plant-based – as recently promoted in the Netflix documentary The Game Changers – including Lewis Hamilton, Patrik Baboumian, and James Wilks.
