Boxing Knights At Brentwood Leisure Centre: Spartacus Is Back
07.04.05 - Ipswich light heavyweight Spartacus, who defends his British Masters Title against Reading’s Sammy Pryce on Sunday, believes he has returned to the kind of form that saw him sit near the top of the domestic light heavyweight rankings at the end of 2003. “The real me is back,” the 27-year-old promised. “I’m feeling good again.”

“Like I have said before, that wasn’t me that lost the English Title to Peter Haymer last year. He couldn’t live with me when I am at my best.
“And that is what I am going to be on Sunday: at my best.
“Pryce can handle himself, I know that. But he is not at my level.”
Spartacus, who tops a bill staged by TBS Sports in association with the Knight Group, added: “My training with Tony Simms has gone fantastically for this fight.
“Your going to see the Spartacus that destroyed Scott Lansdowne in three rounds, a fight many thought I would struggle in.
“I’m actually better now than I was then. I am punching harder and faster than ever, my jab has improved and we have been working on my defence.
“The hard work has been done. Now it’s a case of letting the good times roll!”
