Did you ever feel defeated before a bout or defeat anyone before a fight? how important are mind games?

How well did your amateur experience transfer over to the pros?

Do you think there is a time limit for a decent amateur career?

How important is a coach throughout?

Have you ever phantom punched somebody to death?

Lovely man, he was over for sportsmans dinners and offered to spar the lads in the gym. That's about it really- he was so well balanced. I watched him my whole life and sparring with a legend like that was absolutely incredible.

Along with Gatti and joe Louis - my favourite ever fighters.

Ill be walking and ill have a daydream about boxing and I can feel the impact- my legs dip. I feel the vibration of the shots- it's weird. Never heard of anyone else having this and it might just be me. Only happened 2-3 times but is weird.

Fairly well. My style was very different as an amateur and it was necessary to change a few things such as my blocking style and hand positioning.

Another great thing was that when I turned pro the likes of Steve foster and Martin power were making great waves and I'd lost a majority to foster - been robbed blind and that really helped with my confidence - I knew I could handle myself at that level.

Ha ha ha

The coach is very important - but not as important as the individual - you have to take responsibility for your own learning.

Anyone can put on a pair of pads and call themselves a coach. It's about breaking down and understanding the different facets of the sport.

It's also about finding new areas where you can improve people. I can spot a blagger very quickly - I'm not bothered as I wouldn't give them the time of day but what upsets me is they ruin careers.

I think as a coach it's your duty to know as much about each area as possible. And just like a boxer if your smart about it you'll cut it , and if not then you won't.

The mind is also so important. Understanding that and how a fighter responds to critsm is also so important.

I don't think there is a time limit on a decent amateur career. I think you should carry on until you can deal with every style and every punch. Once you've got that then time to think about the pros.

what an experience

I can't imagine how it must have been sharing the ring with the guy.

I'd probably stand there awestruck

So good quality food but not too much of it.... Makes perfect sense.


Now I'd like to ask you a training question. I know that you teach people, train them and also train yourself.... So with all of that experience... if you had to make a training pie chart or something like that do you think you could do that for us?

Here's a random example of what I mean.

25% Sparring
15% Heavy bag
10% Roadwork
15% Focus mitts
5% Double end bag
15% Strength and conditioning plyometric exercises
15% Shadow box

All of your feedback is appreciated!

Obviously it's different for the individual. But I just want an idea of what you feel would ideally go into building a great fighter.

absolutely impossible to say - everyone is at a different stage of learning and development. You simply have a set of problems and your goal should be to use whatever might be the most suitable method to fix it.

Nail the fundamentals - that should be the first step for any fighter. The sooner they are nailed, the sooner you can concentrate on the next phase of develolment.
