I managed to sit down with DJ (Delicious Orie) and speak about the recent good news he received. All his hard work has paid off, as he gets an offer to represent Great Britain. But his job is far from over, he talks visualisation, achieving goals and how he started out in boxing.
This is a great episode for those that like boxing and those that don’t, as it is about mindset and goal-setting too.

About Delicious Orie
Delicious walked into a boxing gym at the age of 18 and in this episode he explains how it was all or nothing for him. He had no intention about trying the sport ‘half-hearted’ but he wanted to put all of his efforts in. Despite this, he is still studying a degree in University at present whilst juggling this alongside his training.
He’s a well-spoken athlete that understands boxing and certainly seems destined for greatness, watch this space. Comment below if you enjoyed this one!
