Leigh Copson


I am a fully qualified journalist from the UK and have worked in the media industry for almost 10 years, mainly in sport. I specialise in football, mixed martial arts, boxing and soccer. I'm also an avid pro wrestling fan and have made the pilgrimage to WrestleMania three times.

Up until it's closure in December 2009, I spent three-and-a-half years as a member of the Teletext Sport team. For those that are not familiar with the service, anyone that has a television in the UK could read my work on a daily basis. I have also had articles published by the likes of The Independent, The Scotsman, BBC Sport, Sky Sports, Yahoo Sports!, The Vancouver Sun and the Professional Footballers' Association. The highlight of my career so far is interviewing the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

I am a lifelong Chicago Bears fan and have even named my daughter Payton! My girlfriend is a Dallas Cowboys fan, but I don't hold that against her... much!
