It has been a great en­cour­age­ment

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Ifor wanted to prove to the world that the sport is not just

men and that de­ter­mi­na­tion helped me be­come a five­time World ama­teur box­ing cham­pion. I have won a medal in each of the six World Cham­pi­onships and I’m hun­gry for more. I am train­ing hard and pre­par­ing for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and I hope to do bet­ter than my bronze medal­win­ning per­for­mance at the 2012 Lon­don Olympics.

I am happy that Sport­star has com­pleted 40 years. In com­mem­o­ra­tion of 40 years of ser­vice in sports me­dia, I ac­knowl­edge the sup­port and cov­er­age given to me and my per­for­mance in my box­ing ca­reer by Sport­star. It has been a great en­cour­age­ment and pro­mo­tion for me.
