I feel blessed to have had such an amazing career that has spanned over 27 years In a sport that I love with a passion.
From the young 17yr old Bolton lad achieving his dream of winning an Olympic medal for his country and becoming a two time world boxing champion. Boxing has made me and has given me a platform which I have proudly used to to help and inspire others. I want to say a heartfelt thanks to the incredible teams I have worked with and to my family, friends and fans for the love and support they have shown me.
