Who are your favourite music artists?
I love all types of music, but I'm especially into Wizkid and Koffee at the minute.
What is your favourite food?
I love ice cream, but as a meal I'd say chilli.
What is your favourite film?
Too many to choose from and it depends on my mood. Collectively it would be Disney cartoons though, I'm a big kid.
Favourite holiday destination?
That I've been to - Thailand or China. Where I want to go - Ghana or Cuba.
Favourite TV series?
Right now it's Wednesday, but overall I'd say Law and Order.
Favourite sportsperson outside of boxing?
Tanni Grey Thompson - she was the first athlete who made me take an interest in the Paralympics. She was very successful and now stands in Parliament helping to change lives for people like herself.
Jonas currently has no upcoming fights pencilled in, but has a number of potential options including a rematch with Terri Harper or a super-fight showdown with Claressa Shields.
