Adaway Ready To Do It His Way

Plymouth super featherweight, Chris Adaway, is ready to do it his way as he prepares to make his professional debut in Torquay later this month.

After a solid amateur career the 21 year-old made the decision earlier this year. The former Mayflower ABC starlet reached the ABA semi-finals and was picked to box for England on two occasions.

Now though, after over 70 amateur bouts, Adaway is ready to try his hand in the paid ranks.

“I’m really excited to be making my professional debut,” he told www.uko-boxing.com “I’ve been excited since I decided to turn over five months ago so now that we are less than two weeks away I’m like a kid at Christmas! I just can’t wait to get in there.

“I decided to turn pro as the amateur game has changed a lot over the last 12 months and I think it’s adapting more of a pro style. I thought ‘why not turn over and get paid for something I’m passionate about?’

“I’ve got very high hopes and will be aiming for the top. I know it’s a very hard sport to succeed in but I’ve got the heart and desire and will train as hard as possible to get to where I want to get.”

Adaway kicks off his pro career by facing Bristol scrapper, Harvey Helmsley. It’s a reasonably tough first test for the Plymouth man but, after sparring with a number of other boxers on the Torquay bill, it’s a test he’s looking forward to.

“From what I’ve seen of Harvey I’m expecting him to keep coming forward,” Adaway added. “He’s dangerous but I’ll be using angles to stop him settling into a rhythm.

“I’m training hard and I’m not underestimating him but I have confidence in my own ability.

“We’ve been working on all sorts in the gym and I’ve had some really good sparring against the likes of Courtney Richards, Lewis Browning, Torryn Pook and Freddy Kiwitt. They’re all on the same bill as me and all bring something different to the table.

“It’s been the perfect camp to ensure I start my pro career with a bang.”
