When and why you started boxing:
I started boxing when I was 17 years old. I did it to control my anger management issues more than anything else.
Favourite all-time fighter:
The GOAT, Muhammad Ali of course. He’s my favourite fighter because of the things he did inside and outside of the ring. He’s a real inspiration.
Personal career highlight:
My best achievement so far is winning the Ultimate Boxxer 4 cruiserweight tournament [with victories over Antony Woolery, David Jamieson and Damian Chambers in July last year].
My toughest opponent is myself. No one can hit harder than me.
Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
My best attributes are a secret… and so are my worst.
It’s more important to train smart rather than hard.
I love the food at Brazilian rodizio restaurants. The meat is out of this world.
Best friends in boxing:
Professional light-heavyweight Kola Koyejo.
Other sportsperson you would like to be:
Lewis Hamilton. I think I’d be a very good car racer due to my temperament and control.
Last film/TV show you saw:
I’ve recently been watching [series] The Boys on Amazon Prime.
Who would play you in a film of your life:
Michael B. Jordan would be the man to do that. He was amazing in Creed.
Have you ever been starstruck:
I was starstruck when I met Evander Holyfield in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Last time you cried:
The last time I cried was when my mum passed away.
Best advice received:
When it comes to money, you should save, save, save.
Worst rumour about yourself:
That I can’t punch!
Something not many people know about you:
I’ve got two cats.
