Walsh ready to box his way to box office bouts

DEE Walsh believes he is a good enough boxer to fight on the box and become box office, but knows he has to go about proving it in upcoming bouts.

The Irish light middleweight champion is keen to make the step up in class so he can make strides up the rankings and secure the fights and profile he believes his talent deserves.

A stylish demolition of Terry Maughan in an Irish title fight certainly proved ‘Waldo’ is a level above domestic and he believes Patryk Litiewicz, his opponent the June 6 Devinish hosted Dee Day show gives him the opportunity to make another step up.

Dee Walsh will be taking a step-up in class when he faces Patryk Litkiewicz at the Devenish Complex on June 6.

Indeed, Walsh believes the Pole, who twice fought for the WBO Youth Title, will help him prove he is genuine title contender.

“I needed a step-up and this guy will give me that.He has a good record and has fought the the WBO world Youth title twice, so he is no mug.

“I have to win this fight and get myself more exposure. I am watching guys on television and I believe I am better than them – so I have to keep winning and I will get there,” said Walsh when speaking to the Belfast Newsletter.
