Despite having a brief amateur stint and a professional career out of the mainstream, Alex gained his boxing education the hard way. A way in which no other UK boxing talent would dare put himself through. He’s spent the most recent part of his career boxing abroad in Canada and Mexico. And it’s in Mexico where he trained in the legendary Romanza Gym alongside all-time great, Juan Manuel Marquez.
Alex’s talents were quickly spotted by the renowned trainer Nacho Beristain and was used as one of his chief sparring partners for the Manny Pacquiao fight.
Undoubtedly, this experience under the watchful eye of Nacho and gym wars with Marquez, has sharpened Alex into a deadly weapon waiting to be unleashed in both the super featherweight and featherweight scene. *
