Anthony Fitzgerald is adamant he will make his name in the All Irish middleweight Prizefighter on May 5.
Indeed ‘Fitzy’ believes he will be so impressive in the Kings Hall hosted event, that his name won’t just be on everyone’s lips, but will have a lasting impression on the all action tournament.
‘The Pride’ claims by the time he is done with Prizefighter it will be know as ‘Pridefighter’.
“I am so excited about Prizefigher. I am going all out to win it. My training camp starts now and I will be super fit and ready to go to war. None of the other entrants want this as much as me. This is a Pridefighter night not Prizefighter,” Fitzgerald told www.irish-boxing.com
The Irish Prizefigther eight is one contestant shy of being officially confirmed and the EBA middleweight champion isn’t deterred by the seven names he knows will be in the draw come May 5.
The Phil Sutcliffe trained pugilist is confident if he produces his best he will bank the £32,000 winners cheque.
“I think I am the best out of all the names confirmed. If I perform to my best I will win. There are some good fighters in there and I am sure there will be some great crowd pleasing fights, but I will win it.”
