James Tennyson has been getting top quality sparring as he leaves ‘no stone unturned’ in a bid to get his hands on the British featherweight title.
The young Belfast puncher has intensified his training ahead of his April 30th British title challenge in London on April 30.
‘Tenny’ is hoping to dethrone Ryan Walsh on the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders World title defence.
The Frank Warren-promoted Mark Dunlop-managed puncher knows victory will bring him to the next level and open numerous doors and in the knowledge of both the challenge that awaits and the opportunities victory will bring he has stepped up his preparations accordingly.
The 22 year old former Irish champion, who boasts 13 stoppages from 16 wins, has shared the sparring ring with unified World champ Carl Frampton and European Champion Josh Warrington of late and has banked experience and confidence from his experiences with both.
“I am excited and have been sparring away. I am working very hard and the British title is one that every boxer wants to win,” he said.
Walsh is an experienced operator, one who has been touted for a move beyond domestic level of late, but having studied him Tennyson is confident he can beat the Englishman.
“I have watched him a couple of times and am going there to win. I believe I can beat him and get my hands on that belt,” he added.
