Lewis Ritson Returns
This year, we’ve been treated to some exceptional domestic fight cards and this weekend is no different. Saturday sees a terrific night of boxing in the practically sold out Metro Radio arena, Newcastle, with domestic Lightweight king Lewis Ritson aiming to add the European strap to the Lonsdale belt he won outright against Paul Hyland Jr in June. His opponent, Francesco Patera, promises to be durable and a potentially tricky assignment for the Forest Hall man. Patera, a former European champion himself, has never been stopped in 22 bouts to date.
Ritson’s ability to dismantle opponents has proven to be unforgiving and unrelenting once he smells blood. If he stops his Belgian opponent this weekend with the same brutality we have seen over the last 12 months, the ‘Sandman’ will no doubt be knocking on the door of some familiar British and world lightweight talents.
Robbies Davies Jr vs Glenn Foot
The undercard is stacked full of great domestic talent, with chief support and potential fight of the night contender being Suzi Wong regular Robbie Davies Jr vs Glenn Foot for the British Super Lightweight title. Fighting for the famous Lord Lonsdale Belt always seems to capture the imagination of boxers and fans alike, bringing out that extra 1%, which is the difference between winning and losing and in this case, cementing part of a legacy for years to come. Both fighters believe they will be victorious, so expect fireworks from the 1st Round.
Make sure you keep your eye out for the custom design boxing shorts Robbie will be sporting during the fight, along with his ring walk apparel. We believe we have captured the essence of the occasion and supplied a bespoke piece, befitting a fight of this magnitude.
Robbie won’t be the only British boxer who will be sporting our custom design wear, with Anthony Fowler and Hosea Burton featuring, as well as our very own English Rose, Dave Allen donning boxing shorts, designed in our studio.
