Here I talk to Scott about what life was like growing up on a rough estate, growing up with a group of lads that became brothers. Then he became a step dad to 3 at the young age of 22 ,before turning his life around losing 8 stone in less than a year and becoming a boxer. Scott now runs a boxing gym in Grantham hoping to give kids who could potentially end up on the wrong side of the tracks an outlet and somewhere to blow off steam.
