His proposed trip to Russia may have been cancelled, but Dee Walsh isn’t too upset stressing by the end of the 2012 Irish fight fans will be aware he has the talent to become a Tzar of the boxing game.
Routine visa issues are rumoured to the reason the 21 year old’s scheduled fight has been called off, but ‘Wealthy’ is not down hearted and is confident his talent and the managerial skills of Gary Hyde are his passport to the top.
Walsh registered an impressive debut win over Gerard Healy and was eager to double his wins tally in Russia but will have to wait before extending his win streak.
The man know as ’Waldo’ in Belfast, whose love of the spot light ironically ensures he isn’t to hard to find when it comes to an interview, plans a busy year ahead.
“It is unfortunate the fight has gone down but I’m not too disappointed,” Walsh told www.irish-boxing.com. “I know that there will be plenty of opportunities for me and I know Garys doing his best for me. I’m hoping to get out asap, I’ve been getting good sparring with Brian Magee lately. You can’t buy experience like that, its boosting my confidence more an more. 2012 is going be a massive year for me, an unbeaten one at that.
He may have only dipped his toe into pro boxing waters but the brash talent is predicting he will become a big fish in the fight pond. Indeed the confident and likeable Belfast fighter claims he has an unrivaled style.
“We are going to make people sit up an take notice of my talent and style. In my opinion this country has ever seen a style like mine before.”
