1) What's your greatest achievement to date?

1) as cheesy as it sounds my biggest achievement is being a father, nothing will ever come close to the joy my daughter brings me.

2) every fight is a challenge you'd have to be silly to think otherwise, but after October in looking forward to my first 6 round fight 👊🏼

3) as you might have guessed from my answer to number 1 my inspiration is my little girl I want to be the best me I can be to make her as proud as possible

4) my hero is Ricky Hatton in and outside the ring a very determined yet level man no dazzle dazzle what you see is what you get and that has to be admired a true people's champ

5) if it wasn't for boxing then I imagine i'd be on building sites In the rain and wind for the next 20/30 years of my life so can't complain being tucked away in a gym haha

6) yeah I think the new items look phenomenal from the modern day researched gloves to retro clothing wear I'm very impressed 👍🏼

7) gotta get the axe out and put in some graft 💪🏼haha

8) I think it's fair to say I like a left hook! Found that a fair amount of the time that will be the one that does the trick maybe watching Hatton too much haha

9) haggis is a definite yes from me!! Especially from the chippy 😁 hahaha!
