Q: Where do you see your career in five years’ time and what do you want to achieve from boxing?

Throwing himself into his local ABC gym that just opened may have been just for something to do at 17 years of age, but now 13 years on he’s on the verge of pushing for European and world honours.

A: I want to be remembered as a great fighter inside and outside of the ring.

Q: Who is your boxing idol?

A: Mike Tyson is my idol.

The scalps he has collected at the domestic level so far speak volumes for the Trojan’s career and that will only make his ambition stronger to succeed at a higher level.

In his next fight, Troy will surely have plenty of eyes on him from all over the United Kingdom. He will again be looking to make a huge statement and cement his status as one of the best British champions in recent years.

Watch out for Troy the Trojan!
