|Kell Brook signs the Glove you can win|
In boxing it would be old tapes of Muhammad Ali he was the man, Eubank and Benn when they was coming through, Naz was my hero and Ryan Rhodes, I used to watch them in the gym and think, yeah I want to be like them when I’d see the cameras come in, I’ll be like that if I keep at it
What gym do you box out of and who’s your trainer?
Brendan Ingle’s Winkcobank Gym, Dominic Ingle is my trainer and has been for a couple of years now
Which fight have you ever watched or been involved in that had the biggest impact on you and been the most memorable?
Naz when he boxed Kevin Kelly in Vegas, we were watching it pay per view and it was an unbelievable fight, one of the first big fights I watched
What do you think will be the biggest challenge of your career?
Who ever has that world title belt, they’re not gonna give it me and I’m gonna take it of them, it’s gonna be one hell of a fight so I think that will be the biggest challenge
What do you have to give up during training?
Palling about with me mates, staying up late and when it come close to the fight keeping my missus at arms length, those kind of things that people take for granted, I have to limit them, all part of the dedication
After the fight you normally take a break, any plans this time?
I’m looking to go to Italy, it’s not finalised yet but I want to stay in Europe this time
What are your favorite brands?
Adidas, their one of my top brands, I’ve just signed a deal with them so
Did they manage to get any Olympic tickets?
They haven’t, they’re like gold dust
It was when I went to Selfridges in London and a got a Alexandra McQueen jacket that was touching a thousand, I just had to have this jacket cos I fell in love with it, I was I bit younger but I’ve still got it
When I’m in training I like to listen to classical in the car to mellow me out, like the calm before the storm, when I get into the gym its heavy rap to get you in the zone
Ain’t no stopping us now
Scar Face, it’s a classic
Blades mate, I was brought up with them
Cheryl or Tulisa
