It was an honour to receive the Dennie Mancini award last weekend at the British Boxing Board of Control award lunch.

It was related to me being the Commonwealth Champion back in the day.

It was also very special to me because Dennie was my cuts man for all of my professional fights and was a dear friend. He's very much missed by all of the boxing community but it got me thinking…

What’s the best scar you’ve got?

Thanks to Dennie doing an amazing job, I’ve got a few beauties.

Some from boxing…some from silly ‘accidents’. 

I think scars are underestimated. 

They are often an indicator of a lesson learnt.

Some are signs we didn’t learn something.

But the most powerful ones are often hidden deep within us. They can be emotional, mental or spiritual.

These are the ones where we can make the biggest differences in our lives…creating transformation for good in our lives and the lives of others.

When’s the last time we honestly took a long, hard look at our internal scars

How can you tell you have them?

I have found these transformational scars are the nagging thoughts and feelings in our ‘background noise’, stuff that often pops up in testing situations.

We don’t have to suffer mentally, spiritually, or physically anymore so long as you have the secret to overcoming it.  

So I’d love to hear about your best scar. 

Let’s get it on!
