Boxing Academy: Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE)

I got into a fight with a kid at school and my family thought I would benefit from the discipline boxing gives you. I was 12 when I started sparring and training and I loved everything about it.

I’m a big fan of the UCB Boxing Academy because it’s important for young boxers to get a good vocational qualification. If you are a boxer you can be doing well but if you break your arm that is your career over. This course gives you a back-up plan in sport.

You need a lot of dedication and you have to make sacrifices. At 18, everyone is going out but I have to train and have early nights to stay in shape. I won a youth national title and gold at the tri-nations. I’ve also represented England in the Brandenburg Cup in Germany, fighting five times in four days and winning silver.

I would like to do as well as I can as an amateur. I want to get on the GB team and go to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. My dream is to go pro and win a world title. I will go pro no matter what happens.
