But Yarde was in turmoil as he was regularly forced to take child-support money from parents who had breached their payment plans.

After being left with no choice but to take cash out of a mother’s bank account, he packed in his career and focused on becoming a boxer — despite not having had a single bout at the time.

Yarde, 28, said: “I hated that job. There was one day I had a mother on the phone and all her money had been taken.

“She had a plan in place — but as she breached and got another loan they had taken all her cash.

“Whatever child-support money went into her bank, I think it was £600, they took all of it.  No remorse, no warning.
