FARRELL: JENNINGS LOOKING FOR EXCUSES

KIERAN FARRELL believes rival Stephen Jennings is already looking for excuses ahead of their Central Area light-welterweight title fight.

Scouser Jennings (5-1-1) has stepped in at one week’s notice to challenge Farrell for the vacant title over ten rounds at Bury’s Castle Leisure Centre on Friday (March 2).

Jennings’ camp reckons it would be an easy night for their man, but now rate it a “50-50” fight much to the anger of Farrell.

The Heywood battler (11-0) said: “Kieran’s manager made some comments about it being an even fight because of the short notice, but that is nonsense.

“Jennings had already been in training for a contest a week later. To me they are already wheeling out the excuses.

“We were both told about this fight on Friday and I had been preparing for a switch hitter when Jon Baguley was the opponent so it has meant a change for me, also.”

The card is the latest in Hatton TV’s Friday fight night series that is broadcast live on You Tube and draws tens of thousands of fans from around the globe.

Other fights: Adam Little v Martin Shaw, Dean Halsall v Bobby Wood, Wayne Adaniyi v Tommy Shields, Jimmy Kelly v Moss Hamed, Ryan Doyle  v Michael Stupart, Austin Hornsby v Lee Quinn, Tom Shaw v Danny Connor. Craig Bunn and Callum De’ath box selected opponents.
