Date of birth? 08/05/1989
Age you first started boxing? 10
Which amateur club(s) did you box for? ”Lambton St ABC.”
What was your amateur record? ”48 wins 24 defeats.”
What were your amateur achievements (if any)? ”The truth is I didn’t do much as an amateur. Although I reached national finals and beat kids who were on the England squad I suffered a lot of home town decisions which disheartened me. I kidded myself I was training properly when in fact I wasn’t, and with friends being at the gym it was easy to fall into a comfort zone. So I was left with the decision to either quit, or take the leap and turn pro which I did, and up to now everything is going to plan. I get one on one training with my coaches Mark Monson and Stan Williamson, and the same with my strength and conditioning coach Barry Gibson of Grapplefit – which showed in my last fight when I suffered the first knockdown in my life to get up off the floor and stop the kid in the fourth.”
