Liam won the Western Division Championship and is competing in the National Quarter-Finals

on October 14th. He trains for at least five hours a week and is determined to one day become the Welterweight or Super-middle weight champion of the world.

Liam said: “Boxing makes me more alive. I’m determined to be the best in the world.”
