AD: I have an amazing family. I have two
beautiful girls-Grace, 3½ years old and
Jemima, who is only 4 months. They keep
me on my toes but are an absolute blessing.
My wife is also a dentist and she is incredibly supportive of everything I do. She helps
greatly with my preparation, organisation and
nutrition. I can't stress how important it is to
have good people around you.
DB: You're obviously incredibly busy,
dentistry, boxing and a family. Do you have
any tips for our readers on how to manage
a busy life?
AD: We're all busy. I think the most important lesson I could share is the importance of
making time. It is so important to set a schedule
and stick to it. There is a huge difference
between 'making time' and 'finding time'.
'Finding time' doesn't work; it just won't
happen. You must commit to making sure you
make time for things and have the discipline
to stick to your plan. I think it's incredibly
important for people to make time for the
things that matter most to them. Particularly
people like dentists, who are working in a
highly stressful occupation, need to set time
out to pursue hobbies and other passions
outside of dentistry.
DB: 2017 was a good year for you, winning
your last two fights by knockout. What are
the main lessons you've taken from them?
AD: My last two fights have been in the
Czech Republic; I've been out there a few
times with my good friend and British boxing
legend, Danny Williams. This year I have
worked closely with Williams and also my
trainer, Eddie Mustafa Muhammed, whom
I've trained with since 2012.
Eddie is in the hall of fame and works
with Floyd Mayweather's Money Team at
The Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas.
I've been lucky to get advice from people who
have been there and done it.
One of the mistakes I've been making
previously is that I've been going for the
stoppage early and wanting it a little too
much. They've encouraged me to calm things
down and focus on my boxing, working with
my strengths such as my height, reach and
speed, and encouraging me to be more patient
Daniel with trainer Eddie
and look for openings. In my last two fights
I have done this, and when stoppages have
presented I've taken them in a smart way.
Boxing is very much about the mental side
and tactics as well as the physical.
DB: What are your plans for 2018?
AD: I have some big things planned. There
are some talks at the moment about my U.S.
debut and Amir is also looking to fight in
April in the UK, for which I am scheduled
to be on the undercard.
I'm also planning to have my first title
fight. I will also be continuing with my
dentistry, working towards my master's in
implantology with Tipton Training and
Straumann as well as caring for my patients
at Westpoint Dental Care.
DB: Finally, you've touched on a few people
who have helped you out. Is there anyone
you would like to close this off by thanking?
AD: Absolutely. Although once Fight Night
comes it's just you and your opponent in the
ring, there are so many people who are in my
corner and behind my preparation.
I have so many people to thank: my
strength and conditioning team; my boxing
team, including my trainer, Eddie Mustafa
Muhammad; my physiotherapist, Nasser; and
those involved with my diet and nutrition. I
also need to thank the people who help in the
managerial and promotions, they organise
the fights and continue to give me great
My accountants, Ark Aurora, do a great
job of managing my finance and accounts.
Thank you also to everyone who supports
me-it means so much. I would particularly
like to thank those in the dental profession
who always support and wish me well. All the
support is very much appreciated. ■
