Born in Luton and based out of Nottingham, now aged 26, and having entered the pro ranks late, unbeaten Josh “the diamond” Gooding is a man in a hurry with big ambitions. After an impressive amateur career, which saw him win regional titles at both middleweight and light heavyweight, the sports science graduate from Nottingham University decided three years ago to pursue his dream of becoming a world champion. Now fighting at super-welterweight Gooding is currently 2-0 and has won plaudits for his slick style. Talented and driven, Josh has an exciting career ahead.
