wHEN Boxing News caught up with Lyon “The Lion” Woodstock, 12-2 (5), he wanted to talk about a perfect day he experienced recently. It was perfectly normal and perfect in its normality, and it has changed his outlook on everything. “I woke up, got out of bed and got ready for training,” he recalled.

“I remember thinking it is such a nice day,” he continued. “Everything felt so real. I could really feel the breeze on my skin. My coach, Ajmal Butt, tells me that I look a lot better and that I can bring everything together in my boxing. I trained, I didn’t get tired — it felt beautiful, man. Then I sparred well.

“Walking home in the sunshine was so great. I told my mum it had been perfect. Then there is a knock at the door and my five-year-old daughter is there, she says: ‘I’ve come to see you’. So I take her in to see her nana. We’re just playing and talking. The day ended perfectly.”
