Ronnie ‘The Shark’ Clark is expecting a war when he locks horns with Troy James in a British Super Featherweight Title Eliminator this weekend.
The explosive pair go toe-to-toe at Bedworth Civic Hall on Saturday (27th September) with the former WKA world lightweight kick boxing champion predicting fireworks.
“I’m expecting a proper rumble,” he told www.uko-boxing.com. “We both have a similar style. We both like to come forward so I think it will be a war.
“I can’t see it going the distance. I guess someone will get knocked out!
“Training has gone well; it’s just been a nice, straightforward camp.”
The Scotsman has no qualms about stepping in to James’ backyard, pointing to years of working a kickboxing circuit that saw him travel the length and breadth of the globe.
Somewhat surprisingly thoigh, the lure of a British title isn’t seemingly the motivating factor in facing his Coventry opponent either. Dundee-born Clark would have you believe that he’s in the fight game to simply fight as he looks to stretch his unbeaten pro boxing record to 14-0.
“I have travelled the world kickboxing so I am really not phased by fighting away,” he added. “As an away fighter you just hope it’s a fair contest.
“People are making a lot of the British Title Eliminator status (of the fight) but to me, belts are only for holding up your trousers!
“I just focus on one fight at a time. As a fighter you can only beat who is put in front of you.
“I have competed in ring sports from I was seven years old so this just another fight and one that I’m going to win.”
The Bedworth Civic Hall undercard features four intriguing contests.
