Jabtojab: When did it happen your first contact with boxing?
Harv Dykes: Dad took me down the gym years ago, but I drifted away from it. I got back in to it a couple years later at Whitehawk boxing club with a few friends. They came and went, but I stuck at it and got the buzz for it and never looked back.
What is your motivation for training? My motivation is to go pro! I’m not gonna say I’m gonna make it as a world beater, but I’m hard work for anyone and I believe I can bring problems to the pro game. Make some upsets. I’m a hard fight for anyone.
Which is the boxer you like the most and why? My Favorite has got to be Ricky Hatton. I love the way he used to go in to his fight. Just full beast mode. Although, I don’t think he was the best boxer, but there was something about him…
How is your relationship with your coaches and colleagues when you are training? Me and my coaches get on really well. I put full trust in them but at the end off the day I believe in myself and that’s what matters.
And sparring? Describe us the feeling you have when sparring with your colleagues? Sparring for me is the most important thing I love the buzz off it and the feeling after nothing beats when your fit and have a good spar you feel so ready for anyone it’s an unbelievable feeling
Me and my coaches get on really well. I put full trust in them, but at the end off the day I believe in myself and that’s what matters.
Did you ever participate in a boxing Event? How was the feeling? No better feeling in the world than having your hand raised. It’s the best buzz in the world and you feel unbelievable.
Do you believed that who practice boxing becomes a better person in work, with family, friends? If more people would get in to boxing the streets would be so much better and we wouldn’t hear about knife crime as it changes you completely in to a new better person for me boxing is life keeps me on a straight path in life and I would advise anyone to go to a gym as I’m a strong believe in healthy life gives you a healthy life
