Waldron hopes to be wonderful against the Wonder Boy
By Jonny Stapleton
JOHN Waldron is plans to play the panto villain in Halifax, Yorkshire tonight and is plotting the demise of ‘The Wonder Boy’ Jamie Kelly.
The Mayo fighter travels across the pond to take on the youngster, is confident he can prove the English fighter’s kryptonite and inflict a first loss on Kelly.
The 37 year old hasn’t registered a win in five fights, but desires a fourth Irish title shot and believes victory tonight can help him achieve his goal.
“I am confident. I’m fighting this lad in his back yard and he’s unbeaten, but if all goes well I’ll be inflicting his first loss on him. I hope to win and get a crack at Irish title again. If I win that title back it would be onwards and upwards from there. I’m going give it a 100% and I hope that will prove enough. Training is going well so fingers crossed I can give all all the Irish in Halifax something to cheer about.”
