I was born in Watford, London on the 15th of October 1989. I spent part of my childhood growing up in my ancestral homeland of Nigeria before returning to the UK at the age of 12.
At the age of 18, I joined Finchley ABC in Barnet, North London where my journey into boxing began. I quickly learned boxing was a sport that requires a huge amount of dedication, hard work, and sacrifice. Like with anything in life, if I didn't commit myself 100% to it, I would be found out.
Four years into my boxing journey I won the Olympic Gold at London 2012. From there I have gone on to win the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO world Heavyweight Titles.
BEHIND THE BRAND
Boxing is a way of life more than a sport. I have tried to capture this feeling in a range of clothing and fitness accessories designed to make boxing accessible to anyone.
The clothing represents my own background, growing up in East London forms a fundamental part of who I am today. I have tried to capture the unique urban style in my range of hoodies, t-shirts and other lifestyle products.
Beyond that, the message that any goal can be achieved through hard work is firmly emblazoned across my range. I hope they can serve as an inspiration to never give up to anyone who supports me and the brand.
When I turned professional I worked hard to build a world-class team around me that manage all aspects of my career from commercial opportunities to fight related business. Fortunately, I am now in a position to offer this team to elite level athletes in order to maximise their own career potential. 258 MGT is a bespoke management company that develops athletes beyond their sport.Contact UsVisit 258 Homepage
