My love of boxing began by following the exploits of Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzage and in particular Ricky Hatton in world title fights. At the age of 18 I began following the sport a lot closer: watching the classics on youtube, reading and researching the modern greats, and waking up at 4AM for the superfights over in the the US.
I was lucky enough to go to Manchester for university and during this time I had the chance to watch many of the modern British Greats up close and personal at the city's MEN arena, which helped grow my love for the sport. It was around this time I began writing for an American website (proboxing-fans) covering the British fight scene for them. This was a role I thoroughly enjoyed and with it I had the chance to attend press conferences and fights.
After university I moved to Australia and as such stopped writing for the website. However, having now returned to the UK, and with the British boxing scene being at an all time high, I'm enjoying having the opportunity to start writing again - particularly for a respected site like britishboxers.co.uk.
