100% if I was sparring with bums I wouldn’t have improved, I want to train with the best in world.

You only had a short career as an amateur.. What made you chose to turn pro so early?

I got to seven and zero as an amateur The ABA then revoked my licence due to my martial arts background, I then went pro straight away and learnt the hard way, you could say I have been thrown in deep end but I’m a quick learner.

Lots - Liston, Johnson, Archie Moore, Lenox & James Toney.

Not right now, I am just taking one fight at a time.

My best attribute is I have a big heart and my worse is I have big balls!

One fight at a time right now.
