London (31 May) Eli Green can’t wait to be part of “dream” show on June 8th.
The Guildford featherweight fights on the James DeGale undercard at Glow, Bluewater and is excited to be on such a local show.
“I’m really excited to get on a show so close to home with Hennessy Sports and James DeGale, it’s a dream come true really,” Eli said.
“I remember coming through watching James, so to be fighting on the same show with him is brilliant.
“It’s nice that it’s so close to home as well, I should have a few fans down there and I’ve just got to make sure I enjoy it.
“Training has been going really well – I’ve done some good sparring and running, so it’s just a case of hard sparring from now until then.
“I’m going to take it round by round and try to weigh-up my opponent and take it from there; you always want to please the crowd but whatever has to be done will be done.
“It’s something I’m really looking forward to and hopefully it will be the first of many.
“It’s hard to say what I can achieve in the sport but I want to take it as far as I possibly can – I would love that Lonsdale belt.”
Eli features on the James DeGale undercard at Glow, Bluewater, on Saturday 8th June, in only his second professional contest, looking for win number two.
