27th September 2012

After playing such a demanding role in one of British boxing’s most
brutal performances this year back in April, Driffield’s Curtis
Woodhouse
is ready to return to the stage he loves as he aims to return
to winning ways on September 28th following his devastating knockout
loss to Dale Miles.
After carving out a well-earned reputation as a
crowd-pleasing warrior, Woodhouse is desperate to demonstrate his fistic
bravado in the higher echelons of the domestic light-welterweight scene
but he must get past Derby’s Dave Ryan to fulfill that fight fantasy.
Promoter Dave Coldwell is excited about his upcoming feature.
“Curtis Woodhouse is fast becoming one of the most exciting
names on the boxing scene because he delivers entertainment every time
he fights,” said Coldwell.

“His fight against Dale Miles will more than
likely rank as the best domestic battle this year and that says a lot
when you think about the great fights that we’ve seen this year. Every
single time he steps through the ropes all he wants to do is put a show
on, his fight against Dave Ryan will be no different and I guarantee
anyone buying a ticket that they will be treated to an absolute war.”
Since making the transition from footballer to boxer,
Woodhouse’s journey has brought mixed fortunes but the former Birmingham
City midfielder has not been found wanting in the guts category and his
split decision loos to prized amateur Frankie Gavin in 2011 was
conclusive proof that the Yorkshire favourite can compete at a gloried
level. With the Dave Ryan scrap serving as an eliminator for the 10st
English strap, Coldwell believes that his charge is closing in on title
opportunities.
“Curtis has never done things the easy way since he turned to
boxing and we knew deep down that he’d have to encounter some tough
tasks along the way. He’s finally proved the doubters wrong with recent
performances and now we’re in the process of trying to get him access
for domestic belts. The light-welter division is wide open in Britain at
the moment and I definitely feel that Curtis is in that mix that’s
currently competing for the top honours. He’s got a very tough fight
coming up against Dave Ryan but it’s a fight that he’ll up for and one
that he’ll be going all out to win.”
Curtis Woodhouse v Dave Ryan takes place at Rotherham’s Magna
Centre on September 28th and is supported by a quality undercard that
features top prospects such as Nav Mansouri and Chad Gaynor. For tickets
