Booth-Lee

LONDON (10 Dec)Adam Booth had huge stirrups to fill when he stepped into the trainer’s saddle for ex world middleweight challenger Andy Lee two years ago.

The classy Limerick southpaw is clearly one of the most gifted Irish fighters of his generation. However, following two stoppage defeats, the 30 year old was in danger of becoming a talent unfulfilled.

Booth – feted for his work with David Haye and George Groves previously – is keen to prevent that happening as he leads the London born traveller into a second world title crack with Russia’s former crack amateur Matt Korobov in Las Vegas this weekend.
