With only a matter of weeks out from the ‘Young Guns-The Proving Ground’ card, Stabroek Sport caught up with light welterweight prospect, Anson Green.
This publication got his take on how camp has been progressing so far and how he is feeling as the clock winds down to September 22 and his meeting with debutant, Joel Williamson at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
After a few rounds of skipping at this training base, the Andrew ‘Sixhead’ Lewis Gym, Green threw some verbal punches.
“I’m going for the knockout for sure, I want to knock him out. My aim is to rule the 140lb division in Guyana.”
Green who has a record of six losses and two wins, has felt the agony of defeat and in exactly two weeks, he is expecting a much different emotion.
His work ethic allows him to be confident.
Green said he has been training hard for the fight. He hits the gym nearly every day for several hours, and has worked a lot on his cardio and overall fitness. He even dropped 10 pounds from his 155-pound walk around weight.
“I’m faster and more powerful at this weight. I have five more pounds to lose but I am feeling strong and I know I will beat Williamson.”
Williamson has never stepped into a professional ring for combat and Green who made his debut six years ago, says he intends to impose his will and use his experience against the 21 year-old Berbician in the four-round contest.
Will Green emerge victorious or will Williamson start his professional career with a ‘W’? The answer will be known in 14 days.
Meanwhile, the main course of the event will feature Barbadian, Keithland King taking on the much reviled Derrick Richmond in a six-round middleweight contest.
In the co-feature, the hard hitting James Moore and Romeo Norville will match gloves in a cruiserweight match up scheduled for four rounds. Norville’s sister, Ansilla Norville will also be in the ring. The mother of one is scheduled to face Rewinna David in a bantamweight clash scheduled for four rounds.
The organizers have also pit Terrence Adams against Delon Charles in a four-round featherweight fight.
Tickets for the ‘Young Guns-The Proving Ground’ costs $1000 for stands and $2000 for ringside. Bell time is 20:00hrs.(Emmerson Campbell)
