Ryan Aston vs. Yuri Pompilio this Saturday, July 6th
Ryan Aston steps up to championship level at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Saturday night.
Promoter PJ Rowson has stacked his card with prospects including Ricky Summers, Luke Paddock and Jordan Clayton – and Aston tops the bill against Yuri Pompilio for the vacant International Masters middleweight title.
Aston admits the fight he really wants is a rematch with Curtis Valentine.
Valentine ended Aston’s unbeaten record last July with a two-round stoppage for the vacant Midlands Area strap and the Black Country prospect said: “I really want the rematch. We’ve asked for it, but he’s not in the gym.”
Aston admits that loss led to a rethink.
As an amateur, he won four national titles and was part of the Great Britain Development squad.
He trained alongside Frank Buglioni, Callum Smith and Anthony Ogogo and says the loss to Valentine has led to him going back to basics.
“I’ve got back to my boxing instead of looking for the KO punch all the time,” said the 22 year-old.
“Boxing is what got me places in the amateurs and I have gone back to that.
“I’ve had lots of good sparring and I’m feeling sharp.”
Aston has rebuilt since that setback with a technical draw against Ingles’ danger man Tyan Booth and back-to-back points wins over Kirill Psonko and Gilson DeJesus.
The domestic middleweight ratings is packed with talent. At the top are Martin Murray, Matthew Macklin and Darren Barker and Aston is among the division’s rising stars.
He said: “It’s great that there are so many good middleweights out there. If you get to the top you have earned it. There are a lot of big fights out there for me.”
