When and why you started boxing:
I was 10 when I started. My grandparents used to talk about fights from back in the old days, which made me really want to box.
Best fight you’ve seen:
I went to watch Oleksandr Usyk against Mairis Briedis in Riga, Latvia. The atmosphere was unreal and it was non-stop action from start to finish.
Personal career highlight:
Passing the brain scan! I’ve only just started out as a pro, so the best is yet to come.
Myself! Training is the hardest thing about boxing – I love the fighting part. Sometimes I have to battle myself into getting out on the road for running.
Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
I can mix it up with angles and quick hands, but I often get drawn into a fight too easily.
Even a bad session is better than time spent at home, so stick it out.
I love my food! It’s got to be a burger! I had an awesome elk burger in a gastro pub, but you can’t beat a Nando’s.
Best friends in boxing:
My coach [Seb Glazer] and my brother. Although I’d like to punch them both!
Other sportsman you would like to be:
Lewis Hamilton. He goes fast in a car!
Last film/TV show you saw:
I’ve just started watching [TV series] Ray Donovan.
Who would play you in a film of your life:
I’d play myself – I’ll need a career after boxing!
Have you ever been starstruck:
I met David Price the other day. I was sparring at his gym and went to fist bump him but completely missed.
Last time you cried:
Watching Mighty Joe Young in Malta when I was nine. That film gets me every time!
Best advice received:
Worst rumour about yourself:
I like to think that everyone says nice things about me. If they don’t, it’s none of my business.
Something not many people know about you:
Due to the power of social media my life is an open book.
