How did you get into boxing and when did you first discover this was the sport for you?
As a kid, I always loved fighting and got involved in most contact sports, but it was boxing that I loved the most. My Grandad took me to his boxing gym when I was younger and it was the first time I had ever seen a proper boxing gym – it felt so right. And here I am now.
So with this background I started so early as an amateur boxer and by the age of 10 I had won the Welsh title.
