I’ve always been a natural athlete and loved to do all kinds of sport. Before I was a Boxer, I was a Discus Thrower and Shot-Putter, which I took to a high level and competed for England.
In my 20s my grandad passed away, he was my father figure and it was an emotional time. I could have sat there for hours listing to his many fight stories and how he could have been a champion boxer. So in his memory, I went down my local boxing club with a few friends.
Woking ABC would be the place I would learn my craft. The first time I was down there they put me straight in the ring to see what I was made of. The super heavy down there blooded my nose and hit me with some hard shots. After this they put me in there with a game man that had been around the block, he tried to take my head off but I loved it and kept going and getting better and better.
I had 27 amateur fights, picking up national titles and great experiences. I turned pro at 27 and have had a great career so far boxing at some amazing venues like the O2 and Wembley and appeared on Sky Sports, Box Nation, Channel 5, Dave etc......
I’m now 12-0 with 10 knockouts and have become an avoided fighter but I will get my chance and I will be a heavyweight champion.
