QBL Welterweight contender Danny "Relentless" Stalford will take a step closer to fulfilling one his boxing ambitions this weekend if he can win his first Queensbury title on Saturday night at the league's summer blockbuster promotion Feel The Heat.
The 25 year-old from Horley will step into the ring at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel to face Essex based rival Daniel Ratcliffe to decide the destination of the competitions vacant regional Welterweight title, and after producing a career best performance last time out in the same arena, the man dubbed “Relentless” is more than ready to seize his opportunity on the big night.
Stalfords was last in action back in February when he produced a brutal finish to his title eliminator against Marc Wimbledon to seal his shot at the title, and Stalford’s coach Ian Johnson who trains Stalford at the Like 2 Box gym in Redhill is confident his charge will be more than up to the task of securing his biggest win when the final bell rings out.
Talking ahead of the title clash Johnson said: “ Danny is an absolute machine in the gym and he’s trained incredibly hard for this title fight.
“ Danny goes by the ring moniker of relentless because he just puts the pressure on his opponents from start to finish, and he’s so incredibly fit that he wears his opponents down like he did against Wimbledon which is why he’s so hard to fight.
“To be honest we don’t know that much about Ratcliffe other than he’s lost to Idris Hill who’s the only man to beat Danny in the league, but we’ve just been working so hard in the gym and introducing a bit more movement which is only going to make Danny an even better fighter on the night.
Stalford’s title showdown will take place this Saturday night at the Millennium Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex on the under card of the league’s big simmer show, and for more information on the event call the information line on 0203 751 8599
