Queensbury Boxing League - Hamerston ready to take on divisions best

Jack Figg Reports

New QBL Cruiserweight Sam Hamerston plans to waste no time in capturing titles as he prepares for his league debut on June 30.

Hamerston, who competed for Poole and Oakmead ABC winning the Western County Championships twice, makes his debut on the ‘True Grit’ bill against Londoner Fidel Asudi and the 28 year-old revealed fans can expect a high level of boxing ability.

“Fans can expect a high standard of boxing ability” Hamerston said.

“I’m not exactly just a power puncher, or someone with good footwork I can mix it up with everything.

“I’m fast, strong, I can move, I think I’ve got a bit of everything really and that comes from my amatuer days and I also train with a pro which has helped me change my style a bit.

“I’m more relaxed, I’m not just jumping around and I feel I’m at a good standard.”

Fidel is also making his league debut despite boxing for other promotions before, and Hammerston believes his opponent will be surprised with his skills come June 30 .

“I don’t know much about (Fidel) I haven't seen him box yet but my dad, who is my coach, has told me what they know is his style is made for me.” Hamerston said.

“He’s a come forward fighter and I move well off the jab and I can break him down and take him into the later rounds. I think he’ll be surprised when he sees what I can do.

“I’m not going to get carried away in the fight I’ll stick to my boxing, but if I can take him out early I will but I’m not going to rush into everything.”

As Hammerston prepares for the challenge of Asudi on June 30th the former amatuer star has revealed he will target title fights in the near future if he comes through his first test in good style.

Hamerston said: “I want to win titles really, I’ve been out the game for a while and I just want to jump back in the deep end.

“I’m confident in my ability and I know it’s not going to happen overnight but I want the big fights and I want a title.

“I haven’t put a time frame on it but I want to get this fight out the way and I’m confident of getting the win.

“I have no problem getting in there with whoever really so if a fight gets put to me early I’ll jump at it and take it.”

As well as competing in the ring, Hammerston has spent his time setting up an amateur boxing clubin Swanage, and the cruiserweight cited he is looking to inspire the young boxers in his gym.

“I’ve set up an amatuer gym in my town and I’m looking to inspire them and I got the club going to get people off the street and it’s doing really well, I just want to inspire them really” he said.

Hamerston faces Asudi on the 'True Grit' undercard on Saturday June 30th at the millennium arena in West Sussex.
