To make your dreams a reality you need to focus on the correct path to achieve your life goals


The start of my boxing story…

It all began aged 14, I was overweight and most definitely not the popular kid at school.

I was hungry to find my passion. Something that would motivate me, push me to my limits and that I could excel at. I tried the regular activities that were available at school such as football, rugby and cricket however these didn’t appeal to me or give me the satisfaction I was looking for. It wasn’t until I came across the reality TV  show “The Contender” which followed a group of boxers competing against each other to avoid elimination that really sparked my interested in boxing and finally I knew I had found my passion.  I have never looked backed and this old traditional Spanish gym, La Palestra , has become my second home.


In the ring …

After boxing for 1 year, I entered into the Madrid Youth Championships. This was daunting at first but over the various stages I could see the opportunity to take gold, which I later did. I will treasure this moment for the rest of my life.  I always knew that the hard work and dedication would provide results and achieving gold proved this and so, my amateur career began.

I competed as an amateur for 10 years before I was offered a professional contract by the legendary boxing promotors Frank Warren & Queensberry, under the guidance of Frank Warrens son Francis Warren.  With the support of such a team I am now on the path to fulfilling my next dream, to become World Champion.


Closer to the dream …

I currently have 7 out of 7 wins to my name, with 3 KO’s.  I have fought around the world at some amazing arenas as I continue on my journey to become World Champion.

Like all fighters, the World Champion belt is my target, however I also wish to inspire the younger generation that if you apply discipline and focus you can achieve great things.

My mantra is “Never Give Up”.
