The Pride to Fight ‘The Don’ as he drops to light middleweight

ANTHONY Fitzgerald will make his light middleweight debut in Preston against John Brennan next week.

Fitzgerald returns for the first time since his stoppage defeat to Gary O’Sullivan last November and embarks on a new journey at a lighter weight.

Considering some suggested the Dubliner came in to light against ‘Spike’ making light middle for the former Irish super middleweight champion shouldn’t be an issue.

The fight anyone, anywhere, anytime puncher proved himself a worthy foe for World level fighters such as Andy Lee and Hassan N’Dam at middleweight, but believes he can reach higher heights at light middle.

‘The Pride’ has what should prove a relatively easy start to life at his new weight as he takes on the inexperienced Brennan next week. The 29 year old has lost twice in seven fights and both defeats came when he moved up from journey man level.
