Daniel has always been very close to his family, his dad and mum had seven children and Daniel was second born, he spent along time being the only boy among four girls until his brother Prince was born, all of his siblings were involved in sport from swimming to gymnastics and at one point they were all amatuer boxers but his father decided when daniel was born that he was going to be a boxer, training started at 5 yrs old doing push-ups and training almost everyday he even took part in a competition in the US where he set a record for doing push-ups for 5 hours non-stop. By the time he was 8 he was doing up to 5,000 push-ups on a regular basis as in everyday.
He joined South London harriers (Crystal Palace) competing in javelin, long distance races (which he excelled in), swimming and all of these activities that he took part in were to help him gain endurance and strength for his boxing.
ON THE FUTURE
The future is DYNAMITE.....
"I'm coming for all of the belts" Daniel says "I have a chance to make a big statement by winning my first professional title in only my fourth fight. Fernandez is another opponent with a unbeaten record and will be coming over here determined to win the belt. Looking at the current heavyweight scene, I know I can go out there and make my mark. Winning the WBC World youth strap will prove that I am one of the very best heavyweight prospects in the world. This belt will be the first of many. This has been planned since I was 5 years old and it really has gone to plan. I'm working hard towards being the best I can possibly be and I'm feeling good. I've worked very hard on my physical strength and that's showing now. I've heard it has been very difficult finding me an opponent. Not a lot of guys want to get in the ring with me, I must be doing something right! There is still a long way to go, but I believe I will be number one in the world some day soon.
