Exciting Manchester super-featherweight prospect Zelfa Barrett can’t wait to fight in front of the BoxNation cameras when he goes looking for his eighth consecutive professional victory at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 12th March.

Barrett, nephew of former British and European Champion Pat ‘Black Flash’ Barrett, recently signed professional papers with Queensberry Promotions and isn’t fazed at the prospect of boxing in front of packed-out arenas.

He said: “I’m absolutely buzzing, I boxed there as an amateur so I know the scale of the place. The atmosphere is going to be electric but that won’t faze me one bit. I’m looking to progress on to the next level so the bigger the venue the better. I want to perform on the big stage and fighting in a venue of that size will drive me on to box to the best of my ability,”

“I’ve wanted to fight in front of the cameras since I was a little kid, it’s something that I’ve always dreamed about. I’m lucky to be getting the opportunity to fight in front of live cameras so early on in my career and I’ll be looking to show BoxNation viewers what I’m all about.”

Known as the ‘Brown Flash’, Barrett boasts an impressive record of seven wins from seven fights with two KO’s and is looking to put his stamp on an exciting super-featherweight division. 2016 is looking to be a busy year for the 22-year-old who aims to fit in up to eight fights.

“I don’t like to call people out but I’d happily take on anyone at this weight. At the moment I just need to keep on doing what I’m doing, upping my rounds and gaining experience. The only thing other fighters have got on me is experience, boxing ability wise I don’t think any match up to me” said Barrett.

“This year I’m just looking to get some more experience under my belt, obviously I want to end the year with a zero next to my name. Maybe late next year if all goes well I’ll be looking to challenge for some titles but for now it’s all about progression.”

The Manchester hot shot will be looking to go one better than his uncle, who amassed an impressive total of 37 wins with 28 KO’s in a career stretching across the eighties and nineties, and win a world title for himself. The confident Mancunian says he’s one of a kind and promises to bring something new and exciting to the table.

He said: “I have a sharp fighter’s brain and I can out-think any opponent that is put in front of me. I’m not just one of those young fighters who try and go for the kill just to please the crowd. I’m fighting for myself and I know what I have to do, I live the lifestyle and I’m completely devoted to boxing. In years to come you’ll be seeing me at the very top of the fight game.”
