Pitbull targets title showdown

THATCHAM ‘Pitbull’ Bryan Richardson says his title rematch with Surrey-based champion Ben Davies is a fight the fans cannot afford to miss next month, when he returns to action in the UK’s premier boxing league.

The 33-year old will lock horns with the Queensbury Boxing League’s regional champion for a second time after their first encounter ended in bitter disappointment for the Berkshire warrior after a clash of heads opened up a nasty cut over Richardson’s left eye.

But Richardson has promised to be bigger and tougher than ever before when the two meet again Epson Racecourse on September 5. Th fighter has shot to fame in the competition over the past six months after making two appearances on British Eurosport with his all-action wins, and the man dubbed the ‘Pitbull’ due to his ferocious fighting style is ready to light up the ring once again.

Talking ahead of the clash, Richardson said: “ I’ve got five weeks to go until I’m back in the ring with Davies and this time I’m going to be stronger and tougher.

“This time around I’m going to go at him hard from the very start of the fight, and I can’t wait for my fans to come and watch me bring the belt home to Thatcham.

Richardson’s title challenge against Davies is on the League’s ‘Grudge Match’ bill at the Surrey racecourse in Surrey, and tickets can be bought from Richardson via 07449 025687.
