Ochieng confident ahead of Carruthers Test
English Light Middleweight Champion Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng makes the fourth defense of his crown, against the highly experienced Terry Carruthers from Birmingham, at the Matchroom Sport promoted ‘Betfair London’s Finest’ event, which takes place at Wembley Arena on Saturday March 9.
Ochieng, who has proved beyond doubt that he is fast becoming the dominant force within the domestic Light Middle scene, having dispatched the likes of Andrew Lowe, Ryan Toms and Max Maxwell since beating Nick Quigley to lift the vacant title back in January last year, firmly believes that it’s time to move on, to either challenge for the British or Commonwealth crown.
“Yeah, the fight is going to be on the March 9 and it’s going to be a good fight, because it’s against Terry Carruthers, he’s a tough, ugly fighter so I’m gonna come out and look pretty” said the 25 year old from Stoke Newington
Preparation has been going well and Ochieng is looking for another win and then on to bigger things, which will be the British or the Commonwealth.
On the same night TRAD TKO’s Danny Connor will defend his Southern Area against Chris Evangelou, team mate and another of the TRAD TKO crew, Wadi Camacho will take on China White for the English Cruiserweight title, Darren Barker and Lee Purdy will also fight for titles.
