Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? He began boxing at age 13 in 2006 in Victoria, Seychelles.
Why this sport? "From an early age I've always wanted to get involved in a fighting sport like karate, kickboxing, anything related to martial arts. I guess it's because my dad was into karate. Eventually though, a friend of mine who was already boxing introduced me to the sport and I've been hooked ever since."
