At a small height of 4ft11, Reiss Taylor is preparing for his first professional fight which will see him become Britain’s tiniest fighter. Competing in the super flyweight division and weighing just 8st 3lbs, Taylor is no larger than life character.
He did originally want a career in football but after troubles with his height, he was unable to continue. This forced Tiny Taylor to pursue a career in boxing and after training for years, he is finally ready to make his debut.
“I was always short growing up. People would tease me but it was never with malice and to be honest I gave as good as I got. I live on my own now and there are some boxes on top of cupboards that I have to climb and jump up for, but I’m used to it.”
Nicknamed ‘Snowy’ The little man will barely be taller than the ropes and struggles to climb into arenas. However it’s still something I will be watching!
