Reason: "I was sick and tired of playing football with team members who only brought half the effort I brought to the table. I chose boxing because the effort you put in is what you get out." (abae.co.uk, Jan 2017)
Ambition: "Especially in the last couple of years, I've thought about Tokyo a bit. I'd like to go there, do some damage, win a medal - a gold medal - inspire people. Yeah. Olympics. 2020. Gold medal." (bbc.com; 24 Aug 2017)
Memorable: "Captaining the England boxing team in the England vs Ireland duel (December 2016)." (abae.co.uk, Jan 2017)
Hero: "I have three favourite boxers. Sugar Ray ROBINSON (USA), Mike TYSON (USA) and Roy JONES JR (USA). In my opinion, between the three boxing is complete." (abae.co.uk, Jan 2017)
Influence: His mother (AIBA, 2017)
