disappointment for me. Father time has caught up with me, as I didn’t

started this journey as a nineteen year old juvenile tear-away, boxing
at the Top hat social club in Ealing against a policeman Tony Wildgoose
winning by 2nd round stoppage…if it’s to end here, what a ride it’s
been and I’m grateful to the universe for allowing me to find my destiny
and walk the precarious road my way.
Keep dreaming, keep believing and never give up.’
