THE world title fights on the Gennady Golovkin-Kell Brook undercard may capture most of the attention, but for Martin Ward, fighting Andy Townend for the British super-featherweight title, means everything.

“I cannot wait,” Ward told Boxing News. “Near enough four years to the day I turned pro, turned pro on September 12 2012. I’ve come a long way. But this title’s coming my way on Saturday night. Andy Townend is not stopping me.”

Looking at the opponent facing him, Ward explained, “He’s very rough, rugged and robotic, if you want to put it that way, but I’m going to be too good for him. I’m too good of a boxer, too good of a fighter, too good all round for him.
