Two of Britain’s hottest prospects will be hoping to cause some fireworks of their own at ‘The Big Bang’ on April 14th at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.
Hosea Burton and Scott Cardle appear on the undercard of the British light heavyweight title clash between champion, Tony Bellew and challenger, Danny McIntosh live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
23-year old Burton, promoted by David Coldwell and trained by Joe Gallagher makes his professional bow at a separate Coldwell Promotion on March 11th in Bolton. And the super middleweight can’t wait for the moment to arrive.
“I’m counting down the days now,” beamed Burton.
“I’m feeling faster, fitter and stronger now I’ve turned professional. Joe (Gallagher) wants you so fit that when you eventually end up in championship rounds you could go even fifteen rounds.
Everything feels different and much better now I’m professional. There’s no more laughing around. This is serious, these fights go on your record. This is the history I’m trying to make for myself.
I’ve fought on television before when I was an amateur but to be part of a show as big as the one in Liverpool is massive. I’ll be under a little bit of pressure that night but when that happens I deliver the goods.”
A senior ABA champion in 2009, the cousin of Tyson Fury already has goals in mind and shares the same confident personality as his heavyweight relation!
“I will be a British champion, I guarantee that! Every boxer has targets they want to meet and they’d be lying if they said they never.
Anything can happen after you become British champion, that’s the hardest one to win. A European title shot can just be round the corner afterwards and if you win that you’re only a couple of fights away from a world title shot.”
