“I am 110% confident that I will do a number on him. I beat him two years ago and I will beat him again.”
Ahmed enjoyed a narrow points win against Wilton in Dublin two year ago:
“It was a good fight, I was giving a bit of weight away, so my camp told me to hit and move, and I start a boxing game and I beat him.”
“All of my career I have been fighting away from home anyway. It doesn’t really make a difference where I fight. The last time I was away from home I was in Dublin and I beat him and this time I will beat him in Belfast..”
Ahmed explained that there was a mix up regarding the fall out of a rematch that was scheduled in the summer, citing that there was confusion on what day the weigh in was supposed to take place.
However, there might be a return to the flamboyant Uzzy Ahmed ring entrance from the Derby Flyweight:
“I am not sure – it depends how I am feeling – I might take it easy this time. I am doing a six rounder so I don’t want to burn too much of my energy because I will be boxing and trying to hit and move so I need to save my energy.”
“You never know it depends on what kind of mood I am in.”
