7. He says: “When fights have been set up for me, they haven’t always had my best interests at heart - I’ve been paying people’s mortgages and it’s cost me my licence.”

8. “I would get a call saying someone has dropped out and can I take their place. One fight I had seven hours’ notice, and most of that was spent on a train to Birmingham.”
