In an interview with the news network Boxing Social, the undefeated boxer spoke openly about his upbringing and success at youth level and about how professional boxers from a Travelling background are breaking down barriers and challenging perceptions. Speaking to the Boxing Social he said: "I think sometimes we all get tarnished with the same brush, so it's good that we are on TV more and doing interviews like these. People can watch and see that we're just the same as everyone else."
