I found boxing relatively late, starting in my early 20s. I started training with Eltham Amateur Boxing Club at the Gumshield Gym in South London, and since then the sport has been an ever-increasing part of my life. I have trained and sparred all over the world including at various gyms around the UK, in New York, and in Australia. I have sponsored several pros and amateur fighters from the South London scene, and was the event organiser for MeanTime Boxing Promotions, where I was in charge of conducting interviews and writing articles for the fight night program. Here I discovered my love for writing about the sport.
