When and why you started boxing:
I started boxing when I was 15. They brought it to my school, an after-school activity. My brother was boxing down at Fitzroy Lodge and he brought me down to Fitzroy Lodge. That’s when I started properly taking it more seriously.
Favourite all-time fighter:
Number one I would say is Tommy Hearns.
Best fight you’ve seen:
Josh Taylor vs Regis Prograis. That was a good fight, Fight of The Year.
Personal career highlight:
The Dmitry Chudinov win. Going out to Belarus, boxing a Russian and getting the win. I think a lot of people felt I was going to lose. It was good to go as the away fighter and come out with the win.
I think Chudinov.
Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
The jab would be my best. As for worst, I don’t know, maybe head movement but I’m working on it.
Always work on the basics. Straight shots, jab, footwork, basics. Because they’re always the most important.
Mum’s cooking. Whatever Mum’s making.
Best friends in boxing:
Everyone down at the gym.
Other sportsperson you would like to be:
Last film/TV show you saw:
Power probably. I’m always behind on everything.
Who would play you in a film of your life:
Have you ever been starstruck:
Andre Ward came down to Fitzroy Lodge. He gave a speech, that was good. He explained his whole career to us. In proper detail explained the transition going from amateur to becoming a pro, winning world titles, everything.
Last time you cried:
Bad man don’t cry!
Best advice received:
The feedback from sparring Joshua Buatsi, after sparring feedback on what went well, things I should improve on.
Worst rumour about yourself:
No bad rumours about me!
Something not many people know about you:
Everyone knows everything about me.
