Q1 How did you first get into boxing?
I first started boxing over the summer while I was at university. I fell in love with it – the training, feeling of winning when you fight.
Q2: You mentioned you only started boxing late. What other sports did you play before then?
Swimming, Rugby, Karate, Kickboxing, Kung fu, Capoeira, Athletics, Cheerleading and Diving (spring Board).
Q3: How great an experience was the common wealth games?
It was brilliant! The weather was amazing too, at the start we where sunbathing in the village! So many different athletes were strolling around and support of the crowds that showed up, is also worth mentioning. It was especially impressive in the Hydro. 15k were also at the opening and closing ceremonies, which where a great thing to be a part of.
Q4: What have you been up to since then, for those interested in being kept up to date with your career?
I have been busy recently with World Series Boxing. We beat Cuba 4-0 over there recently, for the British Lionhearts in our second season for Olympic Qualification.
Q5: When would you be hoping to turn professional?
After the Olympics of course.
We would like to say a big thank you to Joe for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions. All the best for the future big guy!
