CHEESEMAN AND FITZGERALD CLASH IN NEWCASTLE

PhilBoxing.com




Ted Cheeseman will defend his British Super-Welterweight title against Scott Fitzgerald at the Utilita Arena Newcastle on Saturday October 19 in support of Robbie Davies Jr vs. Lewis Ritson, shown live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN in the US.

Fitzgerald (13-0, 9 KOs) is coming off a career-best win as he dealt Anthony Fowler his first defeat at Liverpoolís M&S Bank Arena in March, and now plans to assert his dominance on the domestic scene with a victory over Bermondseyís Cheeseman later this year.

British Champion Cheeseman (15-1-1, 9 KOs) fell short against Spainís Sergio Garcia in a bid for the European title in February, and was forced to settle for a hotly disputed draw with Northamptonís Kieron Conway in the first defence of his title in June.

ďIím really excited for this fight,Ē said Cheeseman. ďI had a bad start to the year but I overcame all of my demons. I thought I performed well against Conway in June but I didnít get the win, but Iím still the champion and itís my belt to lose.

ďIím in a much better position both mentally and physically now. Itís not about how you start the year, itís about how you end it. When I win this fight Iíll be back at the top of the domestic Super-Welterweight scene.

ďThe experience is going to be what counts in this fight. Scott is a good fighter and you canít take anything away from him but Iíve had a lot of experience. Scott has only fought in ten rounders and heís only had one tough fight. Iíve been in tough fights since my seventh fight really.

ďEveryone is going to be intrigued by this fight. Iíll be the underdog in this one coming off a loss and a draw. Itís going to be an explosive fight. A win over Scott will shut everyone up and put me back at the top of the pile.Ē

ďIím feeling good, training is going well and Iím just where I need to be,Ē said Fitzgerald. ďIím working hard to make sure that the best version of me turns up and I win that British title on October 19.

ďItís neutral ground but I can still probably do a few tickets up there so Iím happy with the venue. Iíve never boxed in Newcastle before so itís all good for me.

ďI thought Cheeseman beat Conway but after that performance Iím confident I can beat him. Iím just working my hardest so Iím prepared for the best version of Ted Cheeseman possible to turn up.

ďIíve been in the gym since my win over Fowler. Iíve not had a big break out of the gym so Iím still where I need to be. Iíve been getting some good spars in and Iíll be ready to go. Iím expecting it to be a good fight and an exciting contest to watch. Iíll have a plan in place ready to get the win.Ē

Full card details including ticket information will be announced soon.
