Big Bang to rough up Too Smooth Booth in WBA European title fight
WILLIE Casey is ready to rough up Jason ‘Too Smooth’ Booth after the English fighter has decided to come out of retirement to fight the Limerick man for the new WBA European title.
The fight has yet to have a venue and not official date has been set, but ’Big Bang’ is training for a clash and claims it could happen within a few weeks.
Emerald promotions are covering both Casey and former British and Commonwealth champion Booth, but seem reluctant to put the bout on their Belfast July 21 show.
Instead they have are offering British promoters a chance to add an intriguing bout upcoming cards.
“There is possible fight with Jason Booth there for me for the WBA Euroopean title. Jason has agreed to take the fight and I have agreed to the take the fight. The fight could happen in the next couple of weeks, “ Casey explained. “We are just looking for a venue and a promoter. We are trying to get on to a show. My own promoter will pay for the fight. Emerald promotions are pulling out the stops to get me back up there. They are making a big effort to make these fights and putting money on the table. I am in training for it now and hopefully we will hear what is happening over the next couple of days. ”
Former European champion and World title challenger Casey see’s Booth as a name that can launch him back into a hot super bantamweight division reckoning.
The 45 fight veteran is certainly a recognised name and is very well respected across Europe, but after being over powered by current British champion Scott Quigg isn’t deemed a significant threat.
Casey would be expected to take a named scalp and if he does it within in the distance can start looking a bouts with Carl Frampton, Kid Gallahad, Rendall Munroe, Quigg and the like.
“A good win over Booth will put me back in the mix. Myself and Jason would be a great fight after that bout I will looking for a big fight. This is a great opportunity for me to prove the level I am at. We both want to win to get our careers back on track.”
