When and why you started boxing:
I started Thai boxing when my dad took me to the gym at the age of about six. I did that until I was 14 and won lots of belts. Then I went into amateur boxing and had 25 fights, winning 23 and boxing for England a few times. I won the CYPs, the Junior ABAs and the Tri-Nations.
Favourite all-time fighter:
Mike Tyson because I just love his style and I’ve always watched him.
Best fight you’ve seen:
The Gervonta Davis-Jose Pedraza fight.
Personal career highlight:
Getting the chance to turn pro. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do.
They’ve all been tough. None have stood out on their own so far. I just figure out on the night what to do to get past them.
Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
My main strengths are my power, speed and fitness. I always set a high pace. I’ve got a lot of things I need to work on, but I don’t see them as weaknesses.
Put hard work and dedication in.
My favourite meal would have to be an Italian. My favourite restaurant is Casa Italia in Liverpool.
Best friends in boxing:
All the team that are around me at Everton Red Triangle Boxing Club.
Other sportsman you would like to be:
Someone involved with fighting.
Last film/TV show you saw:
I watched [crime drama series] Top Boy recently.
Who would play you in a film of your life:
I can’t think of anyone!
Have you ever been starstruck:
I’ve never seen him fight live or met him, but when I watch Floyd Mayweather do his stuff, I get a bit awestruck with his skill.
Last time you cried:
I can’t really remember. Probably back when I was a kid.
Best advice received:
Do what makes you happy.
Worst rumour about yourself:
No one really knows who I am yet, so they’re not talking about me!
Something not many people know about you:
Before becoming a professional boxer I was a plasterer with my dad.
