What are your thoughts looking back on the European Games?

I thought I won [against Kurt Walker]. They’ve done the analysis back here [at the EIS in Sheffield] and I landed more punches. It’s one of them… You can’t dwell on it too much. Obviously for a week after I was gutted but I suppose it’s not the opponent, it’s not him. He isn’t the one who made the decision. He’s in the same position as me, just trying to win. But I definitely felt comfortable, I definitely thought I won.

I can’t dwell on it too much because we’ve got the Worlds just round the corner. It’ll be good to box him again. It’s 2-2, so it would be good to box him again, maybe again for a medal, don’t know how the draw will go.
