Biographical Information


Nickname: The Future (AIBA, 2017)
Hobbies

"I used to want to be a professional footballer, I think every English kid did at one point. But when I wasn't boxing or playing football I was playing (video game) Call of Duty." (fierceedge.com, 9 Apr 2016)


Languages spoken: English
Coach

CLUB: Tony WILSON (Father) (ENG), Joby CLAYTON (ENG) (gbboxing.org.uk, 15 Jun 2017)


Position style: Orthodox (AIBA, 2017)
Reason: "Growing up I was just a normal child, really hyper. I was a bit too much for mum and dad sometimes, so they took me to the gym to burn off a bit of energy. My dad used to take me into the garden and show me pads, he wouldn’t let me into the ring until I got my footwork working." (youtube.com, 18 Feb 2017)
Ambition: "I want a gold at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, then I want gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, then I want to go professional and really challenge myself." (fierceedge.com, 9 Apr 2016)
Memorable: "The highlight of my fighting carrer is winning my first national title." (fierceedge.com, 9 Apr 2016)
Hero: Cuban former amateur boxer Mario KINDELAN (AIBA, 2017)
Influence: "When my father (Tony) used to take me into the garden to work on footwork to help me with boxing and football, then he made me understand I have a talent and a great opportunity to go far in boxing, he helped me push myself every day." (fierceedge.com, 9 Apr 2016)
Additional information

BASICS
"My dad trained me for the first few years, up to the age of about 14 or 15. For a long time I was not allowed to throw punches, it was all about footwork and putting the hard work in, getting the basics right." (expressandstar.com, 9 May 2017)
