Beast of the East
INSPIRATION TO PARTICIPATE
It's a great charity to fundraiser for. Friends of mine had taken part before and loved it. Good incentive to get fit after the Christmas holidays.
HARDEST PART OF TRAINING
The time involved in driving back and forth to Cambridge in Boston traffic. Getting punched
MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING
The anticipation and lead up to the fight has been a great talking point with family and friends. There has been great support and plenty slagging.
PRECONCEPTIONS OF BOXING THAT HAVE BEEN CHANGED
I hadn't been fully aware of the time commitment needed to get fit in such a short time. It seems no matter how hard you train it is still tough to go a few minute rounds without feeling drained. I would have great respect for fighter that can last 12 rounds.
GREATEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT
Winning the hurling county final in my home town
