Podcast: Alex Hughes opens up on emotional rollercoaster and retirement

By Dewi Powell: In a special Christmas episode, the BoxingWales podcast returns with a revealing interview from Maerdy’s Alex Hughes (13-0, 7KO).

The middleweight from Maerdy opens up on the emotional rollercoaster of his career, including a misdiagnosed brain scan and career-ending eye injuries. The 27-year-old also discusses the effect turbulent events had on his family and plans to remain in the sport as an amateur coach, as well as a crazy trip to Russia on the undercard of Enzo Maccarinelli vs Roy Jones Jnr.
