I think I'm as good as the Russians and the Cubans but I've got my feet on the ground. Now that I've got a medal it is a huge thing for somebody my age. The pressure is off now and I'll be relaxed, calm and cool headed for the next fight.
Everyone I box now is going to be after me, but that's what I want - to be tested to the full.
I want to be a world and Olympic champion as an amateur.

He's very strong and I hit him with most of the punches I've got and he still stood there. But I've done the four rounds now and I found it very easy. In the first fight I rushed a bit but I pace myself and I was getting better shots in.
I've adapted my footwork and my punches are a lot harder now. My first fight was like my amateur fights. I went in there with fast feet and fast hands but now I've slowed it down so I'm adapting to it and getting more power into my shots.
My warm-up was harder than the fight.
There's a lot more to come from me. I am only young, I'm only 19, I've got a long way to go. I'm sure (promoter) Frank (Warren) is going to pick the right fights for me and before you know it, I will be ready to go for the world titles.
He gave me a good test. There's a lot more. I'm only 19 and I've a long way to go. Frank will pick the right fights for me and hopefully I'll be on the right track for a world title.
I was a mummy's boy; I still am. My mum still gets rid of the spiders off my walls. She comes over, picks them up and chucks them outside. There may be one im my bedroom, and I'll never sleep.
