Super Middleweight prospect Huzaifah Iqbal has promised to put on a show stealing performance on Saturday June 18th when the twenty two year from Croydon locks horns with Guildfords Dave “Bad Boy” Bennett in his crucial title eliminator for the vacant Queensbury Boxing League 12 stone title at the Effingham Park Hotel in Copthorne West Sussex.
Making his second appearance in quick succession after posting a dramatic first round stoppage victory in his last appearance at the Liquid and Envy nightclub in Maidstone, Huzaifah will be looking to build on that impressive performance and make a statement when he tackles the Bad Boy on the undercard of the League’s aptly named Sudden Impact promotion. With a coveted place in the final of the Super Middleweight eliminator series at stake, Iqbal is confident he will be the man to end Bennetts unbeaten record and grab the final spot.
“ After a year of being inactive I’m just starting to feel sharp again and I am really looking forward to getting back into the ring again on the 18th and show the Queensbury fans what I’m all about. I’ve seen footage of my opponent and he’s just a slugger who walks forward swinging big punches without much thought, but I will treat this fight very seriously as I want the title and a chance to face Fletcher again”.
Iqbal refers to Ian Fletcher who he lost a close fight to in his first bout back after 12 months absence from the sport, and feels that if the pair do meet again in the final the outcome would be totally different from their first encounter.
“My training has been going really well for this fight and with a good few weeks left until the show I am really happy with the ways things are going. With Bennett I know I’m better in every department, and if it turns out to be a boxing match then I’m technically better and will outbox him, and if it turns into a war then so be it I’m happy to trade with him, but either way I’m going to put on an impressive display for everyone coming down to support me and then I want to set the record straight with Fletcher in September”. With the stage set and both boxers confident of sending their opponent crashing out of the eliminator series to claim the final spot in September, the fight looks perfectly poised to produce another must see attraction on the shows packed undercard
