Brad Halford has warned rival Shane Graham that he has the power to end their upcoming battle with just one punch, when the pair collide for the vacant Queensbury English Light Welterweight title in the main event on October 26th.
Thirty three year old Halford will face Graham later this month in the biggest fight of his boxing career when the pair meet for the coveted English title at the Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex, and after flooring all four of his previous victims during his time in the competition, Halford will enter the contest as the favourite after already capturing the league's Southern Area title in only is third outing.
Since entering the league, Halford has appeared several times on British Eurosport with his knockout displays, and has already set his sights on securing a shot at the British title if he can take care of business on the 26th. Talking ahead of the showdown, Halford admits it will not be an easy fight after seeing Graham in action previously in the league, but believes he’s got what it takes to lift his second title.
“I’ve seen Shane box once before, and although I don’t know that much about him, he looks strong and powerful so I’m going to have my hands full on the night, commented Halford.
“Since joining the shows ranks I’ve floored every opponent I’ve fought, and in my last Southern Area title defence I stopped Jon Martin in the first round and he'd previously gone the distance with big punchers up at Light Middleweight, so I know the power is there”
“Training has been going really well for this fight and I’ve been concentrating on getting in as much sparring as possible, so whether this turns out to be a boxing match or a war, I’ll be more than ready to face whatever Shane brings on the night”
