Real Combat Media UK Boxing Correspondent
Craig’s earliest memories of boxing are of Prince Naseem Ahmed. His dad was a big fan and would often let me stay up late to watch it. Craig was drawn to his eccentricity and as a result became a fan of the sport. His fandom developed during Joe Calzaghe’s career and he remains my personal all-time favourite boxer. Craig started a sports journalism course in 2010. But like most, Craig was focused on writing about football (soccer) until he decided to write a feature piece of a friend of his, who was a national amateur boxing champion. He found out that there was a gap in the North East of England for coverage of boxing. In January 2012, Craig created his own website covering boxing in the area.
