Last time out, at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on July 15, Booth lost to Ireland’s Willie Casey for the WBA European super-bantamweight title in a fight many had him winning. Now, with his career hanging in the balance, Jason is prepared to do all he can to make sure lightning doesn’t strike twice against Ward.
“I thought I won [against Casey] but didn’t get the decision. I don’t understand it and thought I got robbed,” stated Booth, the former British super-bantamweight champion. “To be honest I’m wary about fighting in the North East again and if it goes to points I might not get it, but I’m going to have do my best for it not to be an issue. I’ll have to wear a t-shirt saying ‘please don’t rob me’!”
