Queensbury middleweight prospect Tey Lynn-Jones says he wants to fight the best the UK’s premier boxing league can offer, as he prepares for his second appearance of his new career next month at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.
The 21 year old former amateur star will face teak tough former professional prize fighter Anthony Young on Saturday September 5th on the undercard of the Queensbury Boxing League’s big night of action, and after announcing his arrival in the competition back in June with a standout points victory against former England international Tommy Marcon, all eye’s will be on Lynn-Jones as h looks to further enhance his reputation as a potential title challenger.
Talking ahead of his next assignment the young star said: “ I was really happy with my performance against Tommy Marcon and it was a great experience for me boxing on such a big stage”
“ Next up I’ve got Anthony Young who’s a former pro with over 20 fights under his belt so its going to be a big test for me if he’s coming to fight”
“I don’t know too much about him other than he’s an aggressive come forward orthodox fighter who’s very tough and strong, so this should be a really good fight for me”
Young was last in action in the league up at Light Heavyweight when he pushed British champion Yisan Rodriguez all the way to the wire in their clash, and Lynn-Jones feels he knows exactly how to fight his rival when they meet.
“With Young I’m going to need to be on my game and stick behind the jab and use my boxing ability to out work him”
“I know this is going to be a hard fight which is why I’ll be putting in the hard work in the lead up to this fight, but like always I’ll be giving 110% in the gym so that all my fans travelling down to watch this will get their monies worth.
