English Title Shot Beckons For Ochieng After Convincing Win Over Cameron

Stoke Newington’s sensational Light Middleweight prospect Erick ‘The
Eagle’ Ochieng returned to training, at the TKO Boxing Gym in Canning
Town, this week after taking a short rest following his magnificent points
win over the highly rated, and previously unbeaten, Liam Cameron.

Erick happily accepted the offer to face Cameron, on his home turf in
Sheffield, even though Cameron was unbeaten in nine outings and being
hailed as a prospective title contender.

Young Erick put on a scintillating performance to easily take the victory
by a 77-74 points margin, which see him rocket up the rankings and into
championship contention. It is proposed that Erick will now challenge
current holder Brian Rose for the English Light Middleweight title later
this year.

Following a training session, under the watchful eyes of manager-trainer
Brian Lawrence, Erick spoke briefly about the fight, “Yes, I did the
business. I want to thank God for the victory.

It was a good fight. He was rated as a good amateur, former ABA champion
he had nine fights, nine wins, has three TKO’s so I went to his back yard
and took care of business you know.

Broke him down, you know, I was ready to knock him out,  but I got the
win. I’m not shocked because I knew I was going to go there and beat him.
It just shows what kind of fighter I am. As I keep saying I am a World
Champion in the making, you know.

He was a good fighter, I beat him because of the fighters I have fought
compared to the fighters he has fought, you can’t compare. I had tough
fights, you know those tough fights work to my credit and make me a
stronger fighter, more determined to win.

Now I’m rated number ten in Britain, so which is good, set me up good. My
next fight will be for the English title, which Brian Rose has at the
moment, so we’re going to be taking it from him, hopefully in September.

Brian Lawrence is a very good coach and the best is yet to come as they
say. I feel good and I’m back in training now. I took a week off and I
feel good and strong so it’s just onwards and upwards now.”

Further news on the proposed Brian Rose versus Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng,
for the English Light Middleweight title, is expected in the near future –
