Q: First off Isaac, how elated are you that you will be competing inside the world famous O2 Arena on June 3 in what is destined to be yet another banner night for British boxing?
I’m humbled that I’ve reached as far as I’ve come, but also I’m more hungry that I get to show my talent in front of 20,000 people. Every time I box I plan to steal the show and make people remember this fighter being different from the rest.
Q: How well-scouted have you and your team meticulously studied your opponent this time around for your forthcoming bout inside what is sure to be a sold-out and highly raucous O2 Arena on June 3?
It’s been difficult because the fight has been on and off on his end. But we’ve prepared for every style and his come forward aggressive style and the fitness to deal with his pressure.
Q: Having inspirationally risen above to triumphantly win against Wadi Camacho thereafter sustaining a shoulder injury, how would you describe your debilitating injury that you severed during an otherwise largely entertaining showdown against Camacho?
It’s a lot better now. My physiotherapist Michael Ofo, honestly is one of the best in the business and has worked tirelessly on it. And I’ve built muscle patterns around the injury with my strength coach Jay Brockway. Everything has worked perfectly and I look forward to testing it out again.
Q: In hindsight, how was your overall experience sparring with current Unified World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua and current WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder?
It was an amazing experience. Both camps were so professional when in. Amen to their approach to training. I learned a lot from both of them and it taught me that I can mix it with the best in the world.
Q: Speaking of Anthony Joshua, it would indeed appear that thereafter the unprecedented main event clash at a sold-out Wembley Stadium between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko on April 29 that the appetite for professional boxing at large in the United Kingdom has perhaps risen to an all-time high, particularly amongst casual fans. How well does this essential bode for British boxing in relation to its ongoing growth for both the current and next generation of British fighters?
It’s amazing publicity for all of us coming up. Everyone has taken a new light to boxing and everyone wants to do it now. It’s something all the fighters can benefit from as there is going to be a lot of money involved in it also.
Q: How was life for you growing up in Brixton, south London?
It was tough, but it made me who I am today. You can’t quit and make the streets fold you over. That’s why I never did it in my fight against Wadi Camacho. You have to be tough and bold at all times. I saw a lot of my friends in prison or dead and you kind of get used to it because that’s all you grew up around.
Q: Which Professional Boxers did you ardently follow most during adolescence?
Definitely James Toney and his slick old school style. I loved watching him (Toney), Mike McCallum and Andre Ward. Real technical fighters that were students of the game.
Q: Did you believe that the much anticipated forthcoming main event super fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor would invariably come to fruition?
I didn’t believe that it would happen, but I also was surprised that it did. There’s a lot of money involved and it brings a big spotlight on boxing once again.
Q: What have been the biggest obstacles that you have successfully overcome both in your career and life?
Having hard fights at the start of my career made me a lot better and I know more about myself. From undefeated Russ Henshaw breaking my rib in the fourth round and me knocking him out in the sixth round to Wadi Camacho with the dislocated shoulder. It was really something that only I thought I could overcome. My life has been all about boxing since a young age. I vowed to never nearly waste my life, and I’m prepared to work hard.
Q: Last but most certainly not least Isaac, what are your biggest goals and ambitions that you aim to achieve in your Professional Boxing career?
I want to be a World Champion, then unify. Then enter into the Boxing Hall of Fame and become Britain’s best-ever cruiserweight and show every young child you can come from nothing to achieve great things if you have the heart to do so.
