Boxer Scott Moises faced his toughest fight - leukaemia.

Scott Moises is an aspiring boxer, a young man determined to carve out a niche for himself in the toughest and most uncompromising of sports, where blood, sweat and tears are part of everyday life.

But Scott Moises isn't your average young hopeful, dreaming of making it as King of the Ring.

The 22-year-old from Costessey is way above average because he's already beaten one of the biggest battles of them all - leukaemia.

Seven years ago his life was hanging by a thread. He lay in the Addenbrooke's Hospital children's cancer unit, his dream of one day stepping into the ring as a professional in tatters.

Five weeks in hospital was followed by two years of intense chemotherapy and another year recovering.

But as his body flickered back to life, so did the dream, and today Scott Moises is a six-foot-plus lightweight boxer who is proving to be an inspiration to those around him - and those who are suffering from the same debilitating illness.
