The entire family 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.
