I started boxing at 8 years of age. My dad is a boxing fanatic so as soon as my older brother was old enough to train he was sent to the gym. And I followed suit!

Training days usually starts with a run between 5 and 8 miles. Then I'll hit the boxing gym in the afternoon and work for about 2 hrs including sparring/pads and bags. Then in the evening I'll use the weights room.

My diet through the day looks like this;
Breakfast: Oatmeal or cereal
