His explosive style has seen him knock out all but two of his opponents while his willingness to meet dangerous fighters head-on has also been cause for one or two dramatic defeats. Herbie's combative style has earned him the nickname of the 'Dancing Destroyer'. Love him or hate him, there's no denying he's a man who packs one hell of a punch...Outside the ring, Herbie is nothing if not combustible. His tear-ups at press conferences with Michael Bentt and Danny Williams have made the headlines, as has his treatment at the hands of Audley Harrison at the York Hall in London.
