John Allan Bio, Age, Now, Tamerlan Tsarnaev Trainer

The newly launched Netflix’s American Manhunt: The Boston Marathon Bombing documentary is a “thorough but difficult watch” they say. And it indeed should be as it chronicles one of the most shocking and unforgettable tragedies in Boston’s history. The three-part series talks about those approximately 101 hours from the moment the first bomb went off to the capture of the terrorist brothers responsible for the attack on that day, 15 April 2013. In the rest of the writing, we shall talk about John Allan, who among the very rarest happens to know Tamerlan Tsarnaev from before the bombing.

Meet John Allan, Tamerlan Tsarnaev Boxing Trainer Featured On Netflix’s American Manhunt: The Boston Marathon Bombing

Had the notion of the horrifying terrorist attack not come to Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s mind, he would have maybe participated in the Olympics. Yes, Tamerlan, the brother of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was passionate about boxing and he even was thinking about experiencing the Olympics. And John Allan, about whom this writing is based, is actually someone who has known Tamerlan since that time.

John was working as a trainer at the Wai Kru gym in Boston, Massachusetts when he came across Tamerlan for the first time. It was 2008 then. Talking about it to Netflix’s cameras, John shared how to him Tamerlan came across as a “typical” American teenager and a “hard worker” who declined to back down “in the face of adversity.” So, from what he said, Tamerlan used to come to the gym with a friend, who asked John to train him for the Golder Gloves circuit. (Zolpidem) And so he did and eventually, Tamerlan was starting to find fame in the field of boxing. Afterward, he even decided to train for the Olympics, and at one point, when he was eligible to represent the United States, a sudden rule change banned him from partaking in the event. John, his trainer at the time, told Netflix, how at that point, Tamerlan felt as if the state treated him differently just because he was a Muslim. “Extremely disillusioned” is what the Olympic hopeful was according to John.

From that point onward, Tamerlan got deeper into his religion and gradually began turning into an extremist. Then came a time in 2012 when Tamerlan went on a trip to Russia and Dagestan. Upon his return, John found Tamerlan to have changed completely. He soon backed out of training, and the two saw each other on and off.

Where Is John Allan Now?

Exactly ten days before the Boston Marathon bombing, Tamerlan paid a visit to John, accompanied by his daughter. The stop was pretty normal. The two played music and even had a talk about the former’s future in boxing. However, John did catch the “something seems off” vibes back then. And looking back he believes Tamerlan had already planned the whole attack by then. Nevertheless, John said he was still pretty shocked when the authorities established that Tamerlan and his brother were responsible for the bombing.

Fast forward to now, John’s Wai Kru MMA gym against the odds has stayed in business after several disastrous years. A few weeks after the bombing, one of John’s instructors left and with him took dozens of clients. As a result, monthly revenue plummeted by as much as $8,000, and the gym, which ran free after-school programs for high school students, struggled with finances and other ways. So, in all these years, John has been to instead connect Wai Kru with the likes of Doomsday, a rising star in the UFC, and not with Tamerlan and the bombing or the triple homicide that left three gym members dead back in 2011.

John Allan Age

Often black Wai Kru hooded sweatshirts, blue Adidas track pants, and a black Wai Kru baseball cap sporting John’s age-related information, including his birthday, was not known as of now.

John Allan Job

Despite the Boston Marathon bombing weighing heavy on John Allan’s mind, he continued training future boxers. Even today, he continues to be the owner of Wai Kru gym, which according to its social media pages is a muay thai, boxing, jiu-jitsu, mixed martial arts, and wrestling gym located in Boston, Massachusetts.

It’s fair to say that he has never stopped working as an MMA trainer in spite of all the troubles going on. In 2016, he also notably worked as a consultant on the 2016 movie Patriots Day.

Is John Allan Married?

John Allan got married to his stunning German fiancée likely before 2015. She is called Katharina A. Hann.

On 24 November 2015, John wrote this “Happy anniversary love of my life Katharina H. Allan” anniversary post on his social media wall. So, from this, we can at least tell that he did not make her his wife in 2015.

Not much is known about Katharina. In fact, at this time, it was also not understood if she and John were still together/married.
