Tell us a bit about the white collar boxing!: Well like most people watching Katie Taylor this summer i was hooked and thought 'that looks easy enough'! When i heard about the post Christmas training regime i thought that this was my excuse to go nuts in December and Michael Curruth could whip me into shape in January. Looking forward to some new training methods, pushing myself to the limit and an opportunity to punch Sile Cotter!
