Liam hopes to be a boxing champion as he begins his career in the sport.

The 15-year-old has been training at Five Ways Boxing Academy in Burnley for around a year.

He has had his first fight at bantamweight, which finished in a draw.

“I started going with my mates and just enjoyed it,” said Liam.

“I train twice a week and I enjoy the discipline of it, thinking about the correct foods to eat, the stances and the training.

“I admire Deontay Wilder.”
