Darren Tetley – Professional Boxer

Professional Boxer

I was born and raised in Holmewood council estate and lived there until I met my wife. I moved to Buttershaw council estate where I grew up getting into trouble with the law, arrested and been in courts numerous times.

I didn’t learn how to read until I was 20-year-old.

I managed to turn my life around and showcase that with a bit of hard work, I can achieve anything even with people doubting me.
