Liam Walsh is relishing his fight against tough as they come brawler Andrew “Paddy” Patterson in Huddersfield later this month.
The unbeaten Halifax fighter is hoping to put in another impressive performance against welterweight/light-middleweight Patterson, who is known for his durability and aggression.
Patterson will be hoping to take Walsh’s unbeaten record with his hard punching, all out attacking.
Walsh, recently crowned “Courier sportsman of the year” has been dispatching well known opponents and will put out a warning to the rest if he can do the same again.
However, Patterson has collected all his wins by knockout and will be more than happy to indulge in a brawl with Walsh.
Halifax’s super-bantamweight Scott Gladwin will be looking to add his second win against Scottish fighter Ryan McNicol.
The 29-year-old from Glasgow is not afraid of entering his opponents’ back garden and will be hoping to pick up a win on away turf.
Gladwin, who has gradually been bringing his weight down, will again be boxing at the lightest of his career after dropping a few more pounds.
He hopes eventually to reach bantamweight (8st 6lbs), where he will be aiming for titles when the time is right.
Huddersfield fighters Tyrone Nurse, Jason McCalmon, and Alistair Burt Warren will also box alongside Dewsbury’s Zahid Kahut, and British super-featherweight champion Gary Sykes on the seven fight bill.
Sykes and Nurse will face good opponents from France, while their other gym mates’ opponents are yet to be finalised.
The bill titled ‘West Yorkshire’s Real Prospects” will take place on Saturday, July 23 at the Huddersfield Sports Centre.
The doors open at 7pm and the first fight will commence at 8pm. The evening will be followed by with an after-party and buffet at the Barking Spider pub in Huddersfield for all boxing event attendees.
Tickets are available at £30 general and £50 ringside, and can be bought from Liam Walsh (07834 777415), Pat Walsh (07742 248557) or Scott Gladwin (07743 233684).
