2x Mr Universe & UKBFF Super Heavyweight Champion
When I was younger, I enjoyed football and karate and had success competing in both sports, even having trials with several professional clubs. Thai boxing was, and still is a favourite for keeping fit and I have even started dabbling in Brazilian Jujitsu. Back then, though, I was torn between fight training and football and it was whilst fight training in 2003 that I started weight training.
The owner of the gym told me I should compete in bodybuilding so I did, and in 2004 I won the Heavy Weight & Overall titles at the Nabba North East Britain.
