Sutcliffe recently shed light on training multiple-time Oscar-winning actors, Daniel Day-Lewis for The Boxer. The critically acclaimed actor won numerous accolades in his career, but perhaps he earned his highest praise recently from Sutcliffe. According to a recent report by Talksport, Sutcliffe trained the high-profile actor and showered words of praise.

He said, “Daniel came in and trained like a professional fighter, did everything that a professional boxer needs to do. And I know that because I’ve been training them in the gym for a long time now. He was 100 percent committed, practiced everything until he got it perfect, and could land a punch, of course. His boxing ability was out of this world.”
