We visited unbeaten Central Area champion Kieran ‘Vicious’ Farrell (13-0) at his home in Heywood for a chat about his career to date and his inclusion in the Prizefighter Lightweight’s II on October 6th at Liverpool’s Olympia.
Over a cup of tea Kieran talks to Chris Maylett for www.britishboxers.co.uk about how he got into boxing aged 7 after getting a pair of bag gloves from Argos. We find out about his amateur career and why he decided to turn professional at just 18, plus what it has taken to get this exciting prospect to 13-0 and on the brink of making it big on the British boxing scene.
Kieran who is to become a dad in December also talks about his switch from long time coach Bobby Rimmer to take up camp with John Breen in Belfast. With this and an awful lot more… it’s over to you Kieran!
British Boxers was formed in July 2009 as a boxing blog covering British boxing news. Over the years our visitors continued to grow and we are now one of the most visited and respected UK based boxing sites.
In April 2013 the website received a complete makeover to bring extra features and usability and we remain dedicated to covering the very latest UK boxing news, reviews, reports, interviews and videos from the British Boxing scene.
We only report on boxing related issues and not the private lives of boxers. Our ethos has always been to report unbiased news and facts and to promote and highlight our sport in a positive light.
We would like to thank our partners, contributors, the boxers and coaches who have participated in our interviews, plus the dedicated followers and friends who have given their support over the years. We look forward to the future and the Best of British Boxing.
