DEAN Byrne is ready to prove the doubters wrong Carson Jones style when he takes to the ring in Blackpool on Saturday night.
The 30 year old welterweight goes into a clash with world ranked David Avanesyan (19-1-1) as a massive underdog, indeed most don’t give the former Wild Card fighter even a punchers chance.
‘Irish Lightening’, however claims lightening can strike twice and is confident he can upset the odds like he did when he took a last minute fight against American Carson Jones.
Byrne, faced Jones, who caused Keel Brook all manner of problems and stopped Brian Rose, at late noticed, and was awarded a draw in a fight most felt he won. He is hoping to cause a similar upset this coming weekend.
Speaking to Boxing News and Views Byrne, who plans to get busy in 2015 said,
“I am fighting the number 1 welterweight in Russia and he is ranked 22 in the world. I know nobody is giving me a chance but these are the fights that get me going. It is like the Carson Jones fight were people thought he would have me out in a round.
“I am hoping this guy thinks the same. he is only human and as soon as you under estimate someone you get sparked. I will be on the my game and I will be in the fight no doubt about it. Irish lightening will strike again “
