Moffett a man on the move and ready for Tolan test
By Jonny Stapleton
HIS cavalier approach to match making has earned Paul Moffet a top 20 British ranking after just two fights, so it was no surprise to see the super middleweight pitted against the experienced Tommy Tolan this weekend.
Moffett isn’t keen to hang around and is eager to get respected names on his CV as soon as possible.
The 28 year old former semi pro European champion fought Ciaran Healy on his debut and victory over the experienced Tommy Tolan this weekend should see the Down fighter progress further up the ladder.
Moffett believes he will prove he is beyond novice level and ready for the next level this weekend.
“After this fight I think I will be ready to move on. I’m not sure of too many fighters who would have had such a tough first three fights, and my ranking with boxrec currently 16 in Britain already is testament to that!” Moffett told Irish-Boxing.com.
“This is another tough fight for my third outing as a pro ,but one we feel will be another good scalp for me.”
Moffett might be eager to bypass the novice stage, but despite glancing further down the fight road, he remains adamant his focus is fully on teak tough Tolan.
The super middleweight prospect respects the Belfast fighter and is expecting a stiff test.
“I expect a tough fight. Tommy is a good fighter. His record is very misleading as he has to take a lot a fights at short notice through no fault of his own, but he’s had plenty a notice for this one so I’m expecting a good hard fight.”
Moffett is maybe expecting some stiff resistance from the 38 year old hard man, but he has told fight fans to expect a performance of the ‘great’ kind from him.
“I’m ready to put on a great show. I’ve been training very hard now for seven weeks. I’m absolutely itching to get in there, I am so hyped for this one, so expect a great performance. I’m in top shape and feeling”
