Novice Heavyweight title contender Steve Willis is confident he will cut Essex rival Chris Lawes down to size this Saturday night, and claim the vacant QBL novice heavyweight title in the process.
Willis, 32 from Horley in Surrey will reignite his rivalry with Lawes this weekend at the League’s spectacular season finale show at the K2 leisure centre.
The title rivals first shared the ring back in October when Willis travelled up to Essex at just 24 hours notice to face the hometown giant, but after handing Lawes a standing eight count from the referee on route to a hard fought draw, Willis believes having time to prepare this time around will make a big difference in the outcome.
“ I took the first fight at 24 hours notice and I thought I’d done enough to win especially with the standing 8 count, but this time I’ve had plenty of time to prepare and I’ll fight like a champion”, said the 6’9” tree surgeon.
“Since the first fight I’ve been in the gym nearly 7 days a week preparing to face Lawes again, and I’ve been training harder than I’ve ever trained before”
“The last fight was on his territory, this one will be on my doorstep, and I’ve got an army of supporters ready to cheer me on”
“I’ve put my heart and soul into this training camp and I can’t see anything other than victory for me on the night”
Willis’s shot at the vacant Queensbury Boxing League novice heavyweight title will take place this Saturday night on the undercard of the big Only The Brave promotion taking place at the K2 arena in Crawley, West Sussex, and for ticket availability contact the box office on 0203 751 8599
