Brixton Heavyweight Ian Lewison looks to get his faltering career back on track on July 7th
Lewison who lost in two ABA finals to David Dolan and David Price (disputed decision) has made an inauspicious start to his career winning 4 and drawing 1 from 6 fights. “Fights kept falling through and I lost motivation for the sport” said Lewison who weighed 18 stone 12 for his last fight when an unfit Lewison lost to Colin Kenna on points over 4 rounds. “I was a disgrace and an embarrassment to myself. I was not fit and in no condition. It will never happen again”..
Lewison who will weigh in around 17 stone 7 lbs on July 7th has signed a long term deal with fledgling promoter Steve Goodwin and is re-motivated with Steve promoting him “It was an easy decision to sign with Steve. He is going places and I saw what he did by giving Ali Adams a big chance with Audley Harrison. The only difference is when Steve gives me my big chance is that I will take it and win.”
“Steve will get me four fights this year and next year we will start to aim high. We have decided we do not want easy fights so on July 7th I will take on Istvan Ruszinsky who has lost only 1 from 5 fights and has knocked out 2 of his last 3 opponents. He comes to fight and I aim to knock him out and put on a big show to issue a statement that Lewison is coming!”
The Lewison v Ruszinksky fight is on the undercard of a dual title show at York Hall promoted by Goodwin Promotions featuring the eagerly awaiting Southern Area Cruiserweight title fight between Tony Conquest and Leon Williams and the Light-Middlewieght title clash between Nathan Weiss and Ryan Toms.
Chief support to these two fights sees the sensational Ghanain Champion Richard Commey (11 fights 11 wins 11 knockouts) take on Kris Hughes who most recently fought Carl Frampton for the Commonwealth title. Hughes is moving up in weight and wants to make a statement whilst for Commey this is the scalp he wants to show that he is en-route to the top. Commey promises fireworks and his twelfth straight knock out.
