When and why you started boxing:
I started at about 10. I was getting bullied every day at school, so my cousin, Jimmy Sines, took me to the boxing gym.

Favourite all-time fighter:
I always looked up to Ricky Hatton.

Best fight you’ve seen:
Adrien Broner against Marcos Maidana. Watching Broner lose was so satisfying!
