An unexpected twist at the Prizefighter - Welterweights II draw sees TKO Boxing Gym mates Colin Lynes and Bobby Gladman meeting in the quarter final of the Matchroom Sports promoted Prizefighter - Welterweights II, that takes place at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Tuesday, 7th June 2011.
Article posted on 02.06.2011
The full line for the quarter finals of Prizefighter - Welterweights II are:
Kevin McIntyre Vs. John Wayne Hibbert
Junior Witter Vs. Nathan Graham
Colin Lynes Vs. Bobby Gladman
Yassine El Maachi Vs. Peter McDonagh
Following the draw for the Prizefighter season finale, which was held at the Skysports studio, former IBO Light Welterweight Champion of the World Colin Lynes spoke briefly on the prospect of facing gym mate Gladman on Tuesday, “I was up for anyone that got drawn out and it so happens that our own gym mate got pulled out, Bobby Gladman, but on the night we’ll get down to business and both give our all.
I know I’m certainly going to be in there to win it, so yeah looking forward to it.”
Lynes then went on to speak further about the Prizefighter - Welterweights II, “Once you get through the first round you’re going to face any of the top names, because it’s been seeded, I’m ready for whoever it might be Yassine El Maachi, Kevin McIntyre or Junior Witter who are also seeded.
Saying that Peter McDonagh always comes to fight, puts on a good show and he’s used to this format. I know he was a substitute but he’s used to the setup so it could be a surprise there, we’ll have to wait and see.
My being in Prizefighter before is going to be an advantage, but it’s such a quick series of fights and you have to work hard in each round of every fight that experience isn’t going to play a big factor but it’s certainly an advantage.
We’re third on so you don’t get much of a turn around before your back in there so again we’ve covered that in training. I’ve sparred and had a lesser rest and gone back in there and I’ve sparred and had a bigger rest. My body is geared up for whatever they throw at me.
I’m confident, Colin Lynes in the final and Colin Lynes winning Prizefighter.”
