Jose Sulaiman was the boss at the World Boxing Council, boxing’s most respected governing body, for 38 years, and he liked to be called the Father of Boxing, Don Jose or Mr President. The tiny Mexican certainly helped make boxing safer by drafting and pushing through some drastic changes to the way the sport works during his reign as President; last November, when he was in a coma at a hospital in Los Angeles, he was made the WBC’s President for Life at the organisation’s annual convention in Thailand.

This year is going to be a big one I'll be competing in the Commonwealth Games, World Championships and European Championships; it's a full-on schedule. The goal is to get that gold at the Commonwealths in Glasgow. There's going to be some good competition, though. India's Mary Kom, who I boxed against in the Olympics, is a five-time world champion; she was tough when I last faced her and I'm sure she'll be equally tough this year. Trying to get another gold in Rio could top it all.
