Truman Ready To Put Nightmare Behind Him
By Daniel Mole: Chris Truman is hoping to put a nightmare 2012 behind him and become British Masters Champion next month.
The Erdington-born light welterweight (8-3-1) fought just twice last year, losing on both occasions to Lenny Daws and Dave Ryan respectively.
He was also due to fight Ashley Theopane on the undercard of Ricky Hatton’s ill-fated comeback in November but, after the Hitman’s surprise defeat, the rest of the show was cancelled leaving Truman and Theophane, who were warming up ready for their fight, with no other choice but to pack up their kit and go home.
It was a bitter pill to swallow and capped a miserable year for the former Amateur ABC ace but now, after those lows, he is ready to make up for lost time when he faces Amir Unsworth (13-6-1) at the North Kesteven Centre in Lincoln on Saturday, 2nd March for the vacant British Masters Light-Welterweight crown.
“It’s a good title to have,” 28 year-old Truman told www.uko-boxing.com. “For both of us, it’s a stepping stone to bigger things.
“It seems like a long time since I was last in the ring. It has been really frustrating to be honest, not fighting.
“The Theopane fight was a real farce but I’ve stayed focused throughout. I keep myself in good shape and have been sparring, so I’ll be ready.”
Unsworth, four years Truman’s senior, has lost his last three fights although two of those have been at Lightweight for titles – the English against Derry Matthews and the Midlands Area against Kevin Hooper last time out.
Sandwiched in between those two encounters, the 32 year-old lost to journeyman William Warburton at Welterweight.
Truman admits to knowing little about his opponent, who has been given leave from the Army where his Regiment, 1 Mercian, are currently serving in Afghanistan. However, he is expecting a tough night against a boxer with a similar style to himself.
“I don’t know too much about him but know he’s a tough lad who comes to fight.
“That suits me as that’s my style too. We’ll both be coming forward to it will be a good fight to watch.”
