Darren Till Biography, EarlyLife

Darren Till was born on December 24, 1992, and is currently 29 years old. Till was born and raised in Liverpool, England in a house of Scottish parents. He was known to be always getting into trouble and altercations since he was born. Till joined a school but he eventually dropped it when he was only 14 years old to pursue his career in Muay Thai and concentrate on the same.

Till lived in many different places during his budding years such as his gym, relatives’ houses, and other places mainly after an incident he had with his mother, for which he was kicked out of his house. He suffered two back injuries in August 2012 when Till was stabbed twice in the back due to his confrontation with a large group of men at a party. However, the knife, fortunately, missed his main artery by a millimeter. Doctors considered him lucky to be alive. Therefore, after this incident, Till’s coach, Colin Heron insisted that Till should move to Brazil to train with a former Team Kaobon coach. This will help him stay out of any more troubles in his hometown.
