Byfield has revealed ahead of his upcoming fight against his former sparring partner Andy Harris that he has been putting in extra training to bring back his lightning-quick feet that he was so well known for when he in the amateur scene.

Byfield will go up against Harris in what will be his first six-round match and he is hoping that his extra sessions can carry him through all six rounds.

“Since I have turned pro I have slowed my feet down a lot and I have been working really hard in my sessions to try and speed them back up,” said Byfield.

“Before I went pro, one of my biggest attributes was that I had really fast feet so I have been working a lot to try and get those back.

“I have been working on moving in and out again rather than just standing still in the fights and I am hoping that I can transfer my work into my fight against Andy.”

Byfield know what a tough customer Harris is from there hours of sparring and although he isn’t expecting to sop ‘Thunder’, he is hoping that his high work-rate will carry him through all of the rounds.

“This will be my first six-rounder so it will be my aim to last the six rounds with Andy and with him being a little bit heavier than me I am guessing that it will go the distance,” he explained. “I am not expecting to stop him but if it comes for me then it does and I will be happy.

“My work-rate is very high and that is something that we have been working hard on in the gym so that I am ready for the fight and as the rounds progress hopefully that is where I will get some stoppages.

“I am not really looking for that in this fight so if it comes it comes and that will be a bonus for me.

“I know that Andy is a very good boxer and I sparred with him when I first went pro, so like two or three years ago, and it was a good spar so I am expecting this to be a very tough fight.”
