Martin describes himself as a ‘box fighter’. Although most people see him on the front foot, hunting his opponents around the ring, he can box as well as fight. His pedigree is backed up with a long amateur career where he won the ABAs and boxed for England.

A high percentage of Martin’s recent wins have ended by way of knockout, and Martin gives 3 reasons for this. Firstly, he is training very hard with Oliver Harrison who is constantly working on his fitness and technique, and always improving and learning new things in the gym. Second, he is working with a great strength trainer in Martin Cullen, and he can see huge changes in both his strength and physique. Thirdly, he is now fighting what he calls ‘live’ opponents. These aren’t journeymen that are in the ring to survive and pick up a pay cheque. They are good, aggressive fighters that want the same things as Martin and as such they are in the ring to fight. In coming forward aggressively they provide openings in their defence which Martin has exploited with spectacular style.
