Boxing Fight Card
Miguel Vazquez vs Lewis Ritson
Ritson has won three fights on the bounce after suffering his only professional defeat so far to Francesco Patera in October 2018, and enters the ring almost a year on from his last outing when he scored a unanimous decision over Robbie Davies Jr. Vazquez vs Ritson
“If I bring my A-game, I’ll be too much for Miguel and will stop him,” Ritson said.
“I think he’s probably a little bit on the slide whereas I’m still on the way up, so we’re meeting bang in the middle.
“This is the exact type of fight where I can gain more experience to move to the next step.
“He’s been there and done it. We know what he is all about and what he will bring.
“Beating Robbie proved I’m at that European level, now it’s time to prove I can go to the interim world level stage with a good win against Vazquez. That will pave the way for more big fights.
“We never take anyone lightly and we definitely haven’t taken Vazquez lightly. If I bring my A-game, I’ll have more than enough to beat him.”
