"It was September 2020, and I found myself struggling to put on my socks. The simple task of bending down seemed impossible, and I knew something had to change. At 28 years old and weighing 165kg (26 Stone), I was obese and unhappy with my life. I had always been interested in boxing, but I never thought it was something I could pursue seriously. However, that day, I decided to make a plan to become a professional boxer within three years. It was a lofty goal, but I was determined to make it happen.
Since then, my life has changed dramatically. I lost 12 Stone in 12 months and beaten my food addiction, and learned one of the toughest sports in the world. I have had an active amateur boxing career and am now turning my attention to the professional game. My story has been featured in national and international papers and articles written by LadBible, Men’s Health, and even Boxing News. I also featured on Channel 4 show Body SOS Send Nudes telling my story of weight loss and the issue with loose skin. My goal is to show that anything is possible with commitment, hard work, and finding something that drives you.
