Coach David Johnson has sent out a warning to Regional Middleweight champion Ben Davies ahead of this Saturday night, telling the champion he's going to feel like he's been hit by a freight train when he steps through the ropes to defend his belt against his fighter Bryan Richardson.
Johnson, who trains Richardson at the Camberley Boxing Club in Surrey spoke with Queensbury TV this morning ahead of the big showdown to give his views on one of the most hotly anticipated league showdowns in years, and the man tasked with formulating the big fight plan for his student was vocal in his predictions on how he see's the fight playing out at the Millennium arena in just a few days time.
"On Saturday night Ben Davies is going to think he's been hit by a freight train when Bryan starts landing his bombs on him, and there is only going to be one winner in this fight and its not the current champion, said Johnson.
"In the build up to this fight I've put Bryan through absolute hell to make sure he's 100% right for this fight, and he's never once complained and has just got on with everything"
"Training wise Bryan's been sparring top class amateurs from all different weight categories and guys who hit a lot harder than Davies, and he's proved how ready he is for the biggest fight of his career"
" For me after Davies recent comments the time for talking is now over and all that's left is for them to get in that ring on Saturday, and even though this is going to be a great fight, I don't think Davies has any idea what he's up against, and Davies will never have been hit as hard as Bryan is going to hit him"
Richardson's title challenge against the champion Ben Davies takes place this Saturday night at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex, and for all the event information call the Box Office on 0203 751 8599
