Queensbury Southern Area Welterweight champion David Cove has promised to end the unbeaten run of Welterweight rival Cameron Paul next Saturday night when the pair collide at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey.
The nineteen year old champion from Margate will face Paul in the first defence of his title on the undercard of the British Light Middleweight title showdown between Dan Maguire and Nathan Leeson, and after producing a career best performance last time out against Cannon to claim the vacant belt, Cove believes he will be even better equipped this time out when he collides with his unbeaten divisional rival.
Cove’s rise up the Welterweight rankings in the league has been impressive after racking up several big wins on route to his title triumph, but the league’s youngest ever champion believes he is getting better with every fight and is keen to make a statement against his next opponent.
“Winning the title back in June was great, and I was pleased with my performance as I actually showed a lot more of my boxing ability for the first time, comment Cove.
“I’ve seen Pauls last two fights in the league and he looks good when he’s on the front foot, but I’ve seen certain weaknesses when he’s under pressure that I believe I’m going to be able to exploit in this fight”
“Training's been spot on for this one and I’m learning all the time in the gym, so I’m really looking forward to this fight and I can promise you that I’m turning up to do a job on Paul and if I feel I can take him out then I’ll definitely be going for the stoppage”
Cove will feature alongside several other team mates from the O’Neills boxing club in Margate, including undefeated Middleweight prospect Mussy Daniels who faces his acid test against Colchester’s Jason Veares in a crunch final title eliminator.
