REASON FOR PARTICIPATING

In 2018 one of my goals was to give something back. I wanted the next challenge combined with doing something good for charity. I have worked in the field of oncology and as medical rep spent many calls at Crumlin Children's hospital in Dublin. It was there that I saw so many brave little children fighting for their lives against cancer. It is terrible to see someone so young go through so much pain.This was the perfect opportunity to work hard for something that is meaningful and help the fight against cancer

BOXING NICKNAME

Mac Attack

FAVORITE BOXER

Mike Tyson and Chris Eubank

TOUGHEST PART OF TRAINING

Jump rope with shinsplints and continuous bloody noses!

MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING

The feeling after each session. Its torture going through each one but the satisfaction at the end is unreal. As Muhammad Ali said " suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion"

HAS YOUR VIEW OF BOXING CHANGED?

Its an unreal sport with so much to learn. Technique, speed, stamina, power and intelligence. I totally underestimated what fighters go through. Major eye opener!
Its one big game of Chess. As Tyson once said " Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face"
