When and why you started boxing:
I was 15 years old when I started out in the sport back home in Lithuania. I wanted to get strong and try something new.

Favourite all-time fighter:
Either Mike Tyson, Canelo Alvarez or Mikey Garcia. I like tough fighters who have that ‘Mexican style’.

Best fight you’ve seen:
I’ve seen so many great fights over the years. It’s too hard for me to pick a favourite one.
