Influence of his family on his career:

Hooker speaks highly about his wife as in an interview he shared how she helped him during his fight with Dustin Poirer. The fighter said that her wife has given him much-needed support. Due to the covid situation, New Zealand citizens who were returning home had to wait until they were processed. That forced Hooker to stay away from his family for more than two months.

During that time his wife helped him by sending videos of their daughter. He said that ” my wife sent me videos of my daughter walking around the house and asking, ” where’s daddy?“. The fighter said, “Last time my daughter was still young enough that she didn’t even know I was gone “. Hooker said it was heartbreaking and he had to ask his wife to stop sending him videos. ” My wife told me to get over it,” Hooker said. This helped Hooker to get his composure back and encouraged him to go.
