Adam Etches gets new title chance against Brazilian banger
Adam Etches will now face Alexandre Mendez for the vacant IBF super-middleweight youth title at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena tomorrow night (October 26).
Originally the Yorkshireman was to defend his middleweight crown against the Brazilian banger, but questions over Mendez’s weight has prompted the IBF to sanction the contest 8lbs north.
The South American comes into the fight with a fearsome record of ten wins and nine knockouts. Etches, however, doesn’t feel conceding weight advantage will have any bearing on the outcome of the action.
“It’s unfortunate I’m not defending my middleweight title, but at least I’ve now got a chance to win another belt,” Adam said.
“Boxing at super-middleweight really doesn’t bother me. I’ll fight anyone my manager Richard [Poxon] tells me to. If he said I was fighting a cruiserweight I’d be happy because I know anyone I can hit in the head I can knock out.
“Mendez will be heavier than me and he’s shown before that he can punch, but nothing’s changed, he still won’t be hearing the final bell.”
Etches versus Mendez appears on the undercard of Kell Brook’s clash with Vyacheslav Senchenko and will be televised live on Sky Sports from 8pm.
