He didn’t have luck on his side.“But I am so proud of him that he got to the final. He may not have won the gold medal but he will always be my golden boy,” she said. Jason gave it his all.Muriel was surrounded by well-wishers at the sports complex as they tried to cheer on Jason to victory.Alongside side her was Jason’s two sisters Jade, 14 and Holli, 6.Muriel revealed how boxing has been Jason’s life since he was only a toddler as he followed in his father Conor’s footsteps inside the ring.“I remember him getting boxing gloves and headgear for Christmas at a very early age and he would dance around the kitchen declaring himself the winner.“Conor was always away boxing so the chances were that Jason was always going to give boxing a go,” she said. Muriel revealed that even from an early age Jason wrote down on pieces of paper how he was one day going to fight for the world championships.“He is so focused. He only ever wanted to be world champion.“He is in bed by 11 o’clock every night and he looks after himself so well. He put his whole life into this day.“But I know Jason will bounce back.
