After having his fight pulled from the David Price v Sam Sexton under card recently, Jerviston prospect Iain Butcher admits he wasn’t too disconcerted over it “I was disappointed and a wee bit gutted but these things happen just need too move on too the next one!
“Professional boxing is full of ups and Downs and if I learn those lessons early in my career it can only help my resolve” added Butcher.
On Friday night at Rivals Gym in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, Scotland, the undefeated Butcher looks to move to 4-0 by disposing of Liverpool’s undefeated fighter Phil Smith (2-0), but the 19 year old is confident that his training camp has equipped him to secure the win.
“I know that Smith is an orthodox boxer and starts fast. I will take things as they come on the night but I have trained hard enough and not worried about anything because my training camp went the way it was planned. I am confident of the win, and giving the support a good ending”
Whilst Friday’s fight is strongly rooted in his mind, Butcher confers what he expects over the next year should he be successful on Friday “If I win,I would be looking for a some sort of title shot round about Christmas time but if it comes up before then I will be ready”
“I am more then confident I could take the current crop of fighters at my weight, like Paul Edwards and Kevin Satchell after seeing there title fight the other week
