In fact more often than not it will take a few seasons to adjust to the mixed age range boxing against far more experienced boxers.

On another note credit has to go to Josh Leather who stopped him and has seen a remarkable change over the last couple of seasons. Two seasons ago he had lost nearly as many as he won and a change to Wellington ABc has seen beat a few top lads and make it to the ABA semi's. Not bad for a season and a half turnaround.
