Favourite Suzi Wong kit?
My favourite Suzi Wong kit was the gladiator Jamican colour kit I wore when I won my English title. My family are of Jamican heritage and it was a great token to them when fighting for the English title, they had some yellow snake skin on them and I felt amazing in them.
Achievements to date?
I am currently English and Commonwealth Champion
Sugar Ray Leonard is my favourite all time fighter and I study him all the time, he was just so slick at what he did. His movement was unrivalled and I hope to achieve some of what he did.
