Four month’s later though in his first defence, Foster lost his crown when he was outpointed by Ermano Fegatilli. – In his 3 career defeats, Foster has never been stopped. He has had 2 wins since losing the European title and goes in with Buckland himself in form in shape and ready to resurrect his career in this his first challenge for the Lonsdale belt.
I caught up with Steve at the Champs Camp gym in Moss Side, Manchester, where he is trained by former British champions Maurice Core and Ensley Bingham, to talk about how he started boxing, his amateur career, turning professional, winning the European title, his toughest fight to date and the upcoming fight with Buckland.
