Additional information

DELHI
Lost 10-0 to Australian opponent Luke WOODS in the first round at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. Subsequently sent home from the Games by team management after drinking alcohol and causing a disturbance in the athletes' village. Became disillusioned with the sport and quit boxing for two years. (ballymenatimes.com, 18 Jan 2013)

RIO 
Competed for Ireland and placed bets on boxing events, including his own matches, at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Sanctioned with a severe reprimand by the Disciplinary Commission of the IOC. (olympic.org, 15 Aug 2016)

DEPRESSION
Struggled mentally after not winning a medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and was offered advice by Kenneth EGAN (IRL), who beat alcohol addiction after returning with a silver medal from Beijing 2008 Olympics. "Ken EGAN will tell you, it’s hard to get back into it straight after the Olympics, but I’ll come again. He talked to me about that, and what to do. He was supportive that way." (thesun.ie, 19 Dec 2016)

TATTOO
Sports three tattoos on his left arm. Celebrated becoming an Olympian at Rio 2016 by getting the image of the host city’s iconic Christ the Redeemer. The other two are the words redemption and dedication on his biceps. (belfasttelegraph.co.uk, 11 Aug 2016)

PROFESSIONAL
Contemplated turning professional after the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. "I have done everything I can do in the amateur game. I'm now looking forward to going pro and I know for a fact that I will be a better pro than I was an amateur. The longer rounds will suit me, as you can take your time and settle into the fight." (bbc.com, 21 Sep 2017)

AWARDS
