Trying To Make A New History

Boxer Paul Butler, from Ellesemere Port has his eyes on the boxing history with second world title at lower weight. Last June, Butler beat Stuart Hall for the crown of IBF Bantamweight. He is now planning to fight Zolani Tete a South African, who is a weight lower.

Bob Fitzsimmons, a British boxer had 100 years ago challenged for a world title in a lower weight division and Paul for the IBF super flyweight title has similar plans.

Paul has said that if he beat the South African, Zolani and created history then be it so, but that it did not mean anything much to him. For him it is all about going and doing a job there.

Zolani is tall man who knows how to box. He has had 16 knockouts out of his 19 wins, which clearly shows how tough he will be to fight. Paul knows that fighting him will not be easy and that the guy was tough and tall. Zolani has had a pretty good unbeaten record however, Paul is still counting on himself. More than anything else it is Zolani’s strong southpaw stance that is worrying him, than anything else. Paul has said that he will be working on that and will gradually try to get him and knock him down.

Among the other players who are going to be a part of the flyweight title are the undefeated Kevin Satchell who will be pairing with Luke Wilton, Jazza Dickens will be fighting Josh Wale for the empty British super-bantamweight title. Derry Mathews from Liverpool is also going to be a part and his opponent shall be announced by next week.

Butler has also been promoting the forthcoming ‘Mersey Boys’ fight night at the Echo Arena. He has strong aims at the second world title at the Liverpool Echo arena.
