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.
Personal career highlight:
As an amateur, it’d be boxing for England in the Three Nations competition on my 16th birthday. As a pro, it’d be making my debut at York Hall, as I’d always wanted to box there.
In the amateurs, it’d be Jack Oliphant in the  national Junior final. He’s a tough lad and went on to become European champion that year.
Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
My strengths are my adaptability and footwork. I’m not going to highlight my weaknesses here!
Don’t cut corners in camp, otherwise you’ll come unstuck on fight night.
I like any good steakhouse. Preferably Hawksmoor in Covent Garden, if someone else is paying!
Best friends in boxing:
Liam Wiseman, my head coach’s son. We’ve trained together for years.
Last film/TV show you saw:
Jumanji: The Next Level.
Who would play you in a film of your life:
A young Tom Hardy. Everyone says I mumble and he’s good at doing that!
Have you ever been starstruck:
I met Freddie Roach when I was on holiday in California. We called into the Wild Card gym on the off chance and he was there. He showed us around and gave me an autograph. He’s a really nice guy.
Last time you cried:
When I lost in the national Junior final. At the time it felt like the worst day of my life.
Best advice received:
Freddie Roach told me that, win or lose, if you keep working hard and never give up then your dreams will come true. The following year I got to the national finals and boxed for England!
Worst rumour about yourself:
That I entered The X Factor. I can’t even sing!
Something not many people know about you:
I can’t pronounce ‘Birmingham’. I hope I never box there.
