Walsh keen to secure showdown with Warrington

Ryan Walsh

Ryan Walsh has stated that he is eager to land a domestic showdown with WBC International Champion, Josh Warrington, this summer.

However, both Warrington and Walsh must first win their upcoming bouts with Martinez and McCullough, respectively.

Undefeated Warrington is in action this weekend when he faces the tough Spaniard, Kiko Martinez, at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.

Meanwhile, Walsh will try to win the Lonsdale belt outright when he defends his title against Marco McCullough at the Copper Box Arena in London on May 20th.

Walsh said: “A fight against Josh fills me with excitement because all I want is big fights.

“I do hate talking about other fights. The only thing I can think about is defending my title against Marco.

“It would be unprofessional to think about other fights, but I am excited about the doors this will open.

“Beating Marco will put a stamp on the British title and I will be able to move forward, look to bigger titles and fulfilling my dreams.”

Walsh will not be ringside savouring the Leeds Arena atmosphere when Warrington boxes Martinez as his fight is so close, but watching the big fight on BT Sport and BoxNation.

But if Ryan triumphs against McCullough he welcomes the chance to beat Warrington in front of raucous fans baying for his blood.

He added: “If I fight Josh he isn’t going to come to me. The fight will be in Leeds where there will 10,000 nutters wanting to kill me.

“It is those type of occasions that I want. I have been in the wilderness, been away from the big nights and I enjoy being part of those shows where I can express myself.”
