> Full of confidence and ambition, Conway readily admits he often needs to be reined in in order to avoid mistakes both in and out of the ring.
 
Conway said: “I’ve been bad for getting ahead of myself in the past. I’ve been over-eager and my old man has to settle me down.
 
“It’s not just in the ring but it’s in the gym as well. My Dad is a massive influence on me. I don’t tell him that often though!
 
“My Dad is there for me 24/7 and no matter what time I try and get hold of him, he’s there. He’s always studying something that we can do to improve.
 
“As for sparring, we go absolutely everywhere. We’ve been to Liverpool and Manchester recently and I’ve been in with the likes of Tommy Langford and Jason Welborn. I’m still learning so much.
 
“I’ve learned a lot from the last fight. I was too eager there because I had the wrong mentality and didn’t try to open anything up. There were too many single punches.
 
“I’m going to settle down a bit and open things up more. Any other time, I could’ve got my last opponent out of there but I went about it the wrong way and it was another experience I’ll learn from.”
