Curtis Gargano is a man that needs no introduction to the British Boxing faithful. A bubbly and charismatic character with an infectious personality and laugh, that has won the hearts of those in the fight game in the toughest way possible, living the life of a journeyman.

Now training under the watchful eye of respected trainer Joe Pennington at the historic Northside Boxing Gym in Manchester, we caught up with Curtis as he prepares for yet another bout on short notice.

The life of a journeyman can be a hard and thankless road, a lonely and bruising way to put food on the table, but Gargano talks openly and honestly about the path he has chosen.

At 33 and with a record of (0-31-1) many people may look at this without seeing an hearing the depth behind the numbers. Curtis tells British Boxers this is just the start of his career and before he hangs up the gloves for good, he wants to go out on 200 pro fights.

Curtis is a proud man, a man that takes his responsibilities as a gatekeeper seriously and loves what he does. Looking to replicate the legendary status of his father Des Gargano (32-87-3) who shared the ring with contemporary greats such as Prince Naseem Hamed, Curtis has a refreshing and heart-warming approach to his life on the road.

Often taking fights on a days notice and travelling the country with his family to fight, Curtis recalls fondly his memories of his father and the reasons he continues to love the fight game to the fullest. A touching and genuine chat with a man that deserves the respect of the boxing fraternity, Curtis Gargano.
