‘Boxing is great. I’m training hard to get into the tournaments next year. I like all the boxing gear and the bandages and the gloves. I spar with my cousin. You win if you land the punches on the other fella. I like going boxing and even watching the matches. Katie Taylor is a good boxer for a girl. She got the gold for Ireland at the Olympics. I’d like to be a professional boxer when I grow up.’

– Peter
