Regional welterweight champion Tony Ayinde says he is ready to "Snap" challenger Jon Martin when the southpaw duo collide on the undercard of the competitions Reisser High Stakes event next month.
The Surrey champion will make the second defence of his crown against Bournemouth's Martin in a fight Ayinde has promised to stamp his authority on, and as Ayinde continues his mission to be the divisions number 1 operator, the Kingston champion believes Martin will be stepping up to a whole new level when they meet on May 14th.
" Jon Martin is coming up to my level now, and I'm at least a couple of tiers above who he's been fighting and he'll find that out on May 14th, said the Surrey champion.
Ayinde was last in action back in February when he produced another stand out display of fistic skills to comfortably retain his belt against game challenger Lee Cannon, but Ayinde was less than impressed with his performance on that night and feels he needs to give his fans much more excitement, which he intends to do against Martin.
" Against Cannon I felt after the fight I was a bit lazy and came out of the ring feeling like I could have done anothor 4 rounds"
" For this fight I've been bringing in lots of southpaws to spar with and I'm handling them all really well"
" I've seen Martin box and he's a slick, awkward southpaw so I won't be underestimating him for this fight, but apart from his win over ID Hill last time who's he really fought?
" What Martin will realise when we meet is that I'm getting better and better with every fight and for this one I'm going to better still"
" He's said that he thinks this fight is all about levels and I have to agree, so on May 14th he's going to find out I'm levels above him and I'll be putting the pressure on him until he snaps"
Ayinde's title defence against Martin will feature on the undercard of the National Middleweight title clash between challengers Ben Davies and Joel "Smoke" Wanderema, and for ticket information call the box office on 0203 751 8599
