Brad Halford believes his power will be the deciding factor when he steps through the ropes later this month to face veteran Shaun Walton for a chance to claim the Queensbury Boxing League’s Southern Area Light Welterweight title.
The thirty two year old from Epsom has taken the UK’s premier boxing league by storm since joining its ranks back in September of last year racking up several explosive wins, and the all action Halford has now been rewarded for his achievements by getting a crack at his first title on Saturday March 16th at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey on the league's bumper Nowhere To Hide promotion.
But if Halford is to emerge with the victory he will need to take care of Telford’s highly experienced Shaun Walton, who has previously challenged for the shows British title, but a confident Halford say’s he’s more than ready for his big opportunity and is relishing the chance to fight in front of his army of hometown support.
“To be honest I’m really happy to be fighting Walton for this title, and I can’t wait to get in that ring now and do the business, commented the Epsom man.
“People have seen in my previous two fights in the league that I’ve got the power to put people on the canvas, and I’m looking to do the same with Walton when we meet”
“I know that Walton is very experienced and he’s going to have a few tricks that I’ve not seen before, but I’ve been working on a lot of new things in the gym since my last win back in November and I’m not going to go in there like a bat out of hell, I’m looking to box him and put on a confident performance”
