Sam Sexton reckons Liverpool sporting fans will be sick of Norwich by the middle of next month. The proud Norwich heavyweight is predicting a sporting double starting on Saturday when Paul Lambert’s men face Liverpool at Carrow Road. But big Sam (15-2) believes the biggest shock will happen when he travels to Merseyside and challenges David Price (12-0) for the vacant British and Commonwealth crowns.
The bruisers clash at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday May 19th and both are promising plenty of thrills and spills at the world famous Grand National home. Sexton, 27, said: “I reckon Norwich has a great chance of beating Liverpool this weekend and I aim to complete a famous sporting double.
“Price is a good fighter and I have the upmost respect for him, but I will take him to places he has never been. “I have fought far better quality opponents and I think that will show.”
Both of the former Commonwealth champion’s losses have come against Dereck Chisora and he insists: “I will be in the shape of my life for David.
“I have had some brilliant sparring with Richard Towers who is 6ft 8in tall just like David.” In the chief support Ashley Theophane (31-4-1) defends his British light-welterweight crown against local Steve Williams (12-1).
A special attraction sees classy Leeds boxer Adil Anwar (16-1) tackle Lenny Daws (23-2-2) in a vacant English title and eliminator for Theophane’s crown.
Other fights include: John Donnelly (13-2) v Mike Robinson (5-4-3) (English super-flyweight title), Paul Edwards (9-1) v Kevin Satchel (7-0) vacant English flyweight title, Bob Ajisafe (9-2) v Travis Dickinson (12-0) English light-heavyweight crown.
