When and why you started boxing:
I went to watch my mate, Chris Higgs, box Luke Campbell in the Junior ABA final up in Huddersfield in 2005. I loved the atmosphere, so I decided to give it a go.

Favourite all-time fighter:
Ricky Hatton. He’s a good bloke and I loved the way he fought on the inside.

Best fight you’ve seen:
The bloody six-rounder between Rachel Ball and Eftychia Kathopouli. They went hell for leather and both got knocked down.
