My dad was a big fan and we used to watch it together. I became a big fan after watching the Benn v Eubank build up and 1st fight with my dad when I was 5 years old. I was a bit of an unruly kid and boxing was a good outlet and discipline, even though my home life was never settled enough to be able to stick at it and learn. I always knew I would get there one day though, just thought it would have been sooner, but many years passed before I was truly settled.
Which fight would you say is the highlight of your career?
So far it’s my professional debut because it meant so much to me personally – more than I could explain, but my performances have been better with every fight, so let’s hope that continues.
What is your main title aim and how long do you think it will take to achieve it?
The sky is the limit, it really is. I’m aiming for whatever I can get my hands on. Whatever I deserve, whatever I can. Onwards, upwards, always!
What do you feel are your main strengths?
I’m very fit, determined, disciplined and committed, with a work ethic second to none! I learn fast and always listen and the rest follows.
Who would you most like the opportunity to fight?
Whoever is in our way, whoever is put in front of me, whoever it takes.
What fight(s) would you like to see happen at world level in your division?
Liam Walsh fighting any world champion for the title. He absolutely deserves his shot and is without doubt the best in the world!
Where do you see yourself and what do you want to have achieved in a year from now?
In a year from now I’d love to be a professional champion of sorts, looking to move onwards and improve as ever and still bringing the loudest most supportive crowd you could imagine.
