London based Dutch Cruiserweight prospect Mitchell Balker is back in action this coming Friday, when he faces tough Blackpool based Slovakian Richard Turba at the Robert Waterman Promotions event at the Tower Circus in Blackpool.
Balker will be looking to put on a top class performance, against Turba, in preparation for his upcoming challenge for the Netherlands Cruiserweight title, on October 4th in Amsterdam, and his participating in the inaugural Maltese professional boxing event ten days later on October 14th.
Following a training session, at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, on Monday Balker spoke briefly on the upcoming clash with Turba, as well as his upcoming international bouts, “I think it’s going to be a very exciting fight for the public.
It’s going to be a good fight, definitely a very good fight, I’m looking forward to it.
I’m just going to do my job, win the fight and it’s definitely going to be a good win for the TRAD TKO gym, definitely.
I’m looking forward to the fight in Malta, it’s already on BoxRec. It’s going to be another very good fight because it will get me ready for the big fights and of course looking forward to the Amsterdam fight, my first title fight.
That’s going to be three fights already, that’s very good, that’s what I’m here for, that’s why I stay in shape, for this kind of times. I’m looking forward to it.”
Mitchell Balker versus Richard Turba will be supporting Matthew Hatton versus Andrei Abramenka for the vacant IBF International Welterweight title at the Robert Waterman Promotions event at the Tower Circus, Blackpool, on Friday 19th August 2011.
