Connor: Tell Martin I’ll Come To His Back Yard, Smash Him Up And Take His Title

PhilBoxing.com


British Masters Welterweight and Southern Area Light Welterweight Champion Danny ‘Cassius’ Connor has his eyes on an even bigger prize in the New Year, Steve Martin’s newly won WBU Light Welterweight International Title.

Hackbridge, Surrey’s Connor has had a magnificent year on the Championship trail. His first big scalp of the year was that of Ely, Cambs’ exciting young prospect Tyler Goodjohn, who he beat by a single point in a storming, all action British Masters Welterweight Title Battle Royale at York Hall back in May.


His second was even bigger, Eddie Hearn’s then unbeaten star, Enfield’s Chris ‘The Flash’ Evangelou, for the vacant BBBofC Southern Area strap at Hearn’s Matchroom Sport promoted mega event at Alexandra Palace in September.

Connor now wants to move on from the domestic to the International scene and the challenge to Pieta, Malta’s Steve Martin seems to be a logical move.

Martin, who won the coveted belt last Friday with a fifth round stoppage over German hard man Sabri Ulas Goecmen, is far less experienced than Connor, having only fought seven times previously to the Surrey man’s thirteen outings.

Following another grueling training session, at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in the heart of London’s East End, a clearly irked Connor spoke of his intention to rip the belt from the grip of Martin.

“I want to get it out there that Steve Martin from Malta is a fraud, he’s fought no one and I want to go over there and smash him up and take his title.

If he’s a man, he should accept my challenge. I’m not even saying I’ll fight him over here, I’ll come to his back yard and bash him up.

So if you’re a man Steve let’s get it on, let’s do this, I’ll come to your back yard and I’ll smash you up in front of all your mates, whatya say bruv.”
