“The defeats I had were hard to take (single point losses against Andy Harris and Ismail Anwar) but I have a strong mentality which helped me come back.  I’ll have been written off for this fight because people will just look at my record, but that’s fine. Losses mean nothing. They can only set you back a little bit. It’s about how you respond to them. If I was to lose again then I’ll come back from it.”
