For me, inspiration comes from the past heroes of sport; boxing has had so many of them, all known for their individual personalities.

My biggest inspiration comes from a man who has inspired the world over. No matter where you go his name is not far from any conversation. It is not only his achievements in sports that people are inspired by, but also the things he did outside his sport.

He has given back to humanity and as he once said…

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”

You can probably guess that I am talking about Muhammad Ali. I had the pleasure of meeting him on a couple of occasions and on both times the experience he’s been so humbling.

A great man and without doubt the G.O.A.T.
