When and where did you begin this sport? He began boxing when he was 15 at Meadowbank because there was a club near his mum's workplace.
Why this sport? He had always watched boxing on tv but there were no boxing clubs in his area, so he was originally a British taekwondo champion. His trainer encouraged him to go to boxing lessons to strengthen his hands. Within two months he had quit taekwondo for boxing.
