How long have you been boxing for?

I’ve been boxing since I was 14, ever since I walked through the doors I fell in love with the sport.

What weight category do you fight in?

I box at welterweight which is 69kg.

How long have you been sponsored by Hydropro Washington?

I’ve been sponsored by Hydropro Washington since Summer 2018 and I’ve went from strength to strength.

How often do you train?
I train every day, 7 days a week, 364 days of the year, twice a day.
What would you consider to be your best fight?

My best fight I would say was my contest over in Hungary in November I was fighting a lad who had experience, weight and height on me. He was a former Olympian and top class operator. After a very bad first round I came back to knock him out in the 2nd round.

Other than boxing, what hobbies do you have?

I’m a bit boxing-mad to be honest, if I’m not boxing I’m swimming, if I’m not swimming I’m doing strength and conditioning. Everything I do is boxing related.

What advice would you give to aspiring boxers?

To any up and coming boxers out there my only advice is don’t cut any corners. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. If you train hard and leave it all in the ring, win or loose you can hold your head up high…. Live the life or pay the price.
