PAUL BUTLER is aiming for a second world title after bagging the IBF bantam belt. The Ellesmere Port super-flyweight is focusing on defence in training for his February 13 appearance on the Liverpool card topped by Terry Flanagan putting his WBO lightweight strap on the line against Derry Mathews, and also featuring Liam Williams v Nav Mansouri. This video he gave to us shows his slick defensive skills in work with trainer Anthony ‘Arnie’ Farnell.
“Working on defence today, always pick up little things from your previous fight to work on,” Butler posted on Facebook. “Slipping, rolling and catching shots in range and staying nice and compact. Always trying to improve.”
A mission worth emulating.
