Getting to know... Bradley Rea

Bradley 'The Sting' Rea chatted to us about his boxing background and goals in the sport...

Who are your favourite fighters of all time that have inspired you?

My favourite fighter of all time is either Tommy Hearns or Julian Jackson, but the fighters that have inspired me the most are Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla for everything they have done for the Manchester boxing scene.

What has been your favourite fight in your career so far?

My first round KO win v Craig McCarthy on the Khan v Brook undercard at Manchester Arena is a night I will never forget.

What would you say are your best attributes in boxing?

Being able to box on the inside works in my favour a lot, as people expect me to struggle due to my height.

Do you have any interesting pre-fight rituals/ superstitions?

I'm not really a superstitious person, you make your own luck by putting in the work in the gym and out in the roads.

What are your ultimate goals in boxing?

I've always had the goal of winning a British title outright since turning professional. Something about fighting for that title brings out the best in people and I hope I can add my name to the list of classic British title fights.
