When and why you started boxing:
I was about 18 when I started at Handsworth ABC with Ronny Tucker. I’d always been a big boxing fan and I’d always wanted to do it. I got bullied at school and it was something I felt I needed to do.

Favourite all-time fighter:
Floyd Mayweather, James Toney, Joe Louis… I’ve got loads.

Best fight you’ve seen:
It’s too difficult to pick just one because I’ve seen so many great fights.
