The weigh in for former WBU/WBF Featherweight World Champion Choi Tseveenpürev versus former IBO Featherweight World Champion ‘Action’ Jackson Asiku and Southern Area Light Welterweight Champion Darren ‘Mr R&B’ Hamilton versus Midlands Area Light Welterweight Champion Dave Ryan, for the British Masters Light Welterweight title, took place today at The Real Fight Club in Shoreditch.
The two bouts headline Spencer Fearon’s Hard Knocks Boxing Promotions ‘Summer Smash’ event at York Hall, Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 18th June 2011.
Choi Tseveenpürev – 9st 1 1/2lbs
“In training I’m very, very sharp. It’ll be a very, very good fight.
Asiku is a tough kid and no one wants to fight him. I fight anyone and tomorrow I’ll stop him.”
Jackson Asiku – 8st 13lbs
“The fight is going to go like a boxer, that’s what we do, we’re mechanics we work with our tools you know.
We do the real thing, we’ve come to do it, I’ve got my tools I’ve come a long way and I’m going to win this”
Darren Hamilton – 9st 13 1/4lbs
“They way I see things tomorrow, I see it being skills versus effort. I reckon he’s going to be coming forward and I’m just going to be picking him off with the jab.
I reckon the first round could be a bit of a fight, it’ll be up close and personal. It’s gonna be very tense the first round.
After three or four rounds it’s gonna be a very interesting fight, he’s gonna get frustrated and after three or four rounds that’s when it’s going to be a proper fight. We’re gonna be picking shots and stuff and it’ll be a really good fight. I honestly believe that I will stop him inside eight rounds, yeah cool.”
