I am a third year university student but I also have experience in a Sports PR firm as they prepared for the Sports Technology Awards 2016 and one of my roles was to research and create articles for their Twitter accounts, during this experience I also became familiar with much of the technology relating to preventing concussions and brain injury.
As a boxer I have been training and sparring since 16 but have only inter-club and White Collar experience in live fights. At my previous gym, Stars, I had the privilege of being trained a few times by Shane Mcguigan before he left the gym to concentrate on his professional fighters. I have quite good knowledge of the game as a whole, particularly in the UK. I keep up with press conferences and developments on Youtube via some of it's many commentators.
I usually prefer to see boxers press the action, but a truly slick boxer is nothing short of beautiful to watch. As a rugby player at school I had always liked the macho element of boxing, and so joined a gym at 16, not much compared to the thrill of sparring. It was recommended to me that if I wanted to boxing properly that I should watch old fights, and soon I was watching two or three a day.
Boxing is the ultimate sport, combining strength, heart, composure and fitness. To be able to write about boxing offers me a chance to be closer to the sport.
