John has been addicted to boxing ever since happening upon the Arturo Gatti vs. Gabriel Ruelas fight whilst channel hopping. Not a bad introduction to the sport! Living in Manchester, England he is at the center of the UK scene but takes a great interest in the worldwide fight game. Having always thought that before you criticize somebody or something you should try it yourself, John has trained in submission grappling for 5 years and boxes at a local amateur gym. John won a contest with ProBoxing-Fans.com to write a guest column for the site, and then was brought on to join the team as a permanent addition.
