“The few bumps and bruises you get during the fight are nothing to the beating you will give yourself mentally for giving up”
At the tender age of 14, I started training in the art of Muay Thai at a gym called K-Star, in Birmingham UK. Just 6 months later I competed in my first fight which I won via decision. During my schoolboy career, I racked up a series of wins including the schoolboy Midland area, English and British title.
At 16 I entered the adult ranks and quickly made a name for myself. At 17 I became the English champion and just a year later became the British No1 by winning the British title.
