Since graduating from university a couple of years ago, I have been very much bitten by the writing bug and have been working on a distance learning NCTJ Diploma in Journalism as well trying to gain as much experience as I can.
During my university year abroad in Chile, I wrote for an English speaking newspaper on a variety of topics including politics, music and film. In time, I became the paper's principal sports writer, reporting on international football matches and attending press conferences with the national team's manager. On returning back to the UK, I was assigned to cover the Chilean national team's friendly with England at Wembley Stadium. Since then I have spent some time working at my local newspaper as well as recently starting my own boxing blog.
I got into boxing in the late 2000s, around the time Manny Pacquiao was knocking out Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya. From then on I have only grown more passionate about the sweet science, gaining increasing my knowledge of both the current climate and boxing history. There's rarely a moment in the day when I'm not doing something boxing-based, whether it's rewatching the previous weekend's action, seeking out a classic fight or catching up on the latest news. It's fair to say I'm now well and truly hooked.
