New Queensbury professional boxing signing Darius Skop says he is ready to show his fans a more aggressive side to his boxing in his next professional outing, when he becomes one of the first boxers in the country to compete on the exciting new Queensbury pro league.
The 30- year-old Pole who lives in Didcot will take on the self proclaimed “One Man Riot” Jody Meikle in his eighth professional contest at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex in one of the headline bouts at the History In The Making promotion, and Skop is confident he’ll be able to stop the Scunthorpe hardman inside the distance.
Skop was last in action back in March when he tasted defeat for the very first time in his career losing out to Latvian import Reinis Porozovs in Reading, and after regrouping and working hard in the gym, the “Iceman” has promised to show his best form next time out on Saturday June 18th.
Talking ahead of his collision with Meikle, cruiserweight contender Skop said, “Last time out things didn’t go to plan, but I’ve been in the gym changing things around and on the 18th you’ll see me at my best”
“ I’ve not seen any of Meikle’s fights but I’ve seen his record and he’s had over 70 fights and only lost 3 by stoppage”
" I've been training and sparring with future Queensbury Heavyweight champion Jakub Mucha in preparation for Meikle, plus this time around my weight is perfect with just over a week to go until the fight"
“ I’ve got big plans in boxing and I don’t just want to be seen as a local hero, so if I want to progress I’ve got to be able to beat boxers like Meikle and I’m planning to stop him for sure and steal the show”
Skop will collide with Meikle next Saturday night at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex, and for more information on the rest of the stacked line up click HERE
