John Arthur

When and why you started boxing:
I started at around 10. I also played football back then but gave it up to focus on boxing.

Favourite all-time fighter:
Ricky Hatton. I liked his come-forward style and he seems really down to earth.

Best fight you’ve seen:
Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko, live at Wembley Stadium. I went with a load of mates and stayed in London for the night. It was a great atmosphere.
