Super Bantamweight Ryan Walker is excited ahead of his first title shot on November 17, as he battles the tricky and underrated by many, Michael Ramabeletsa for the English title.
The pair will clash at the legendary York Hall and ‘The Lion’ opened up on his preparation for the Super Bantamweight Showdown.
The undefeated prospect said, “Training has been really good it’s been my hardest camp so far I’ve pushed myself and gave everything 100% to make sure I’m ready for the biggest fight of my career so far and thank you to my manager Michael Amoo-Bediako for getting me this opportunity.
“Michael Amoo-Bediako Jnr is the best trainer I’ve worked with. Every day I’m learning something new. He sets out a fight plan for every fight I’ve had and it works. All I need to do is stick to his plan and I’m confident I will beat whoever is put in front of me.
Londoner Walker faces the tough and tricky Preston based South African Michael Ramabeletsa for the English title, a title Ramabeletsa has contested before and lost in controversial fashion. Ryan gave his take on his opponent on November 30.
He said, “I know Michael is an experienced opponent and this challenge is what I need to bring the best out of me.
“I don’t want easy fights I’m here to prove why I’m the best at what I do.”
Many are predicting Walker vs Ramabeletsa as a potential small hall classic, with both fighters hungry for success and different ends of their career. There is a lot more on the line at York Hall than just the English title. Walker gave his thoughts on what he believes will happen on November 30.
The English title challenger said, “All I know is I’m going to win and do whatever I have to do to win on the night. That’s all that matters to me; I’m too young and hungry it will show on the night.
“For 2019 we have even bigger plans but I’m not looking past this fight, this is my main focus right now to win this then I can think about 2019.”
