What is your knowledge & understanding on autism?
I've learned quite a lot since my sister was diagnosed. Mainly the characteristics and the behaviour patterns of people with autism. I recognise autistic children & adults when at a gym or in a coffee shop now. I understand there's no cure, I understand there are so so many different types of autism and not all are hereditary. I understand it's so hard being a parent of a severely autistic child first hand from my parents.
Have you ever done anything for autism charities?
We do a lot for autism charities on a weekly basis. From auctioning our memorabilia to donating a percentage of the sales from our t shirts which are sold online, to our sister's school every Christmas.
Do you know anybody diagnosed with Autism?
As I mentioned above, my sister Hollie has autism. She's non verbal and it is severe. My parents are having a difficult time now Hollie is 15 years old and becoming a young woman.
Anything you would like to tell the autism community?
That people are slowly beginning to become aware of autism. We have autism on our shorts when we fight and the questions we receive after the fights are always positive.
What are your views on my blog?
I haven't yet read it but will gladly do so and I admire anyone on the spectrum who leads an active lifestyle and communicating so well!
Who inspires you the most in the boxing industry?
I'm inspired by my brothers. They're all professional boxers and are great people.
What's your most memorable moment in your career of boxing?
For me unless I win a world title it will probably be winning my first ever national title in 1997 aged 14 years old. You never forget your first.
When did your career of boxing begin?
Professionally in 2003.
Who influenced you the most to do boxing?
Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard and Rocky, the movies.
What's happening for you career-wise at the moment?
I'm on the road back and trying to get the world title. It's been my ambition since I was a small child and it's an ambition that can still be realised.
