Who?!? You are talking about the WBO African Heavyweight champion! Show some respect you casual!
Is Ben focussing purely on traveller fighters now then? There is a lot of boxing talent from that community, he could attract more with the talent he now has training there.
The level of boxing talent within the travelling community is insane. There's 58,000 travellers in the UK according to Google and they've had three world champions in recent years. The strong Irish amateur scene has bee laced with talented travellers over the years. They really are super boxers.
Unfortunately there's major issues with their discipline and lifestyle. John Joe Nevin immediately springs to mind. Turned pro in 2013, had the talent to win multiple world titles but issues with alcohol and having his two legs broken in a traveller feud, mean he's still at the novice stage of his pro career and will likely never progress from it. A tragic waste of undeniable talent. Tyson Fury and Billy Joe are desperately self destructive, yet both remain elite fighters.
If somebody could get a hold of these guys young, teach them how to live right and nurture their skills, Britain would have a lot more world champions, that's for sure.
Yeah it is but he is fighting again very quickly so it was never going to be anyone special.
BJS is a loose cannon but let's face it it Ingle gym has been sussed into what its methods are
Wants some more of that akokov performance it seems
