Luke Keeler’s Feile victory over world level Luis Arias means extremely exciting fights may be just around the corner.
The Ballyfermot middleweight’s team are confident they can continue to maneuver their fighter toward a world title shot – and believe some of the biggest names in world boxing such as Gennady Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez are attainable.
However, while ‘Cool Hand’s’ team and supporters are keener than ever to see who he fights next, the fighter himself is chomping at the bit just to return to camp.
The 32-year-old was delighted to have increased his big name hopes with victory just over a week ago, but is more excited about the possibility of building on a career best performance by improving further in the gym.
Keeler has progressed massively since elected to go full time just over a year and a half ago.
The Pete Taylor trained fighter has been open about how all aspects of his game have improved as a result and how despite being in his 30’s he continues to add new strings to his already effective bow.
As a result the Dubliner is more excited as to the ability, fitness and know how he will have after another full time camp than any possible big fight news – and he can’t wait to return to the gym as a result.
“I am excited to get back into camp. I really feel I am only getting into my groove and improving and it’s exciting for me,” Keeler told Irish-boxing.com.
“I am only full time pro a year and a half, my condition is getting better all the time and I think I will step it all up again in my next camp.
“You’ll see better conditioning, second phase, movement and more. When I first went to Pete I had blisters on my feet from being in the gym. He got me back on my toes and that’s when I excel and I think I’ll improve again. I know I can improve.”
“I have to credit to Pete again. That is why I am excited because I am absorbing and learning. I am going to keep getting better.”
