Following a roller coaster year, Ted Cheeseman has reassessed his circle and is in a better place
It hasn’t been the easiest year for British super-welterweight champion Ted Cheeseman. Back in February he lost his unbeaten record to classy European champion Sergio Garcia in a contest that, by the end, had become a beating. Shortly following the decision defeat, the Bermondsey man admitted to those closest to him that he had long battled an addiction to gambling and then, weeks later, the 23-year-old became a father for the first time.
Moving into recovery, he fought well against Keiron Conway in June but was awarded only a draw.
As Ted prepares for Scott Fitzgerald in October, he reflects on his problems, Conway and the fickle nature of some supposed supporters.
