IT could be seen as a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire for James Fryers as the prospect faces another big puncher in Belfast this weekend.
Not too long after being forced to test his chin against the hard hitting Mark Morris, ‘The Future’ fights Sergejs Logins (8-4) an operator who boasts eight knock out from eight wins.
Fryer’s past the Morris test with minor issue impressing his way to a stoppage win in the Belfast derby and he hopes to do the same again on the Dee Day card in the Devinish complex this coming Saturday.
“He has a winning record and he can punch a bit,” said Fryers.
“I am expecting a tough test and I will be ready for whatever he brings to the ring. I have proved that I have power as well, so it should be a good fight.
“Training and sparring is going well and I will be looking to win and impress.
The former Immaculata amateur plans to move down from lightweight to super featherweight and says making the new weight shouldn’t be an issue.
“The last couple of fights I have just been a couple of pounds over the super featherweight weight, so I could move down easy enough.
“I have been working on my diet and am also doing strength and conditioning which has helped. It has also helped me fighting on a regular basis.
“It means I am training for a fight all the time and not putting weight on.”
