Felix Cash is looking forward to the future, with not one but two fights lined up already for 2017. With a clash at York Hall coming up on March 17th, Cash has also been added to the Ricky Burns undercard in Glasgow on April 15th.

Cash, from Wokingham, currently 4-0 with 3 KO’s, can’t wait to get back into the ring after a successful training camp in Portugal where he has been experimenting with different boxing techniques and styles.

“I’m always working, and always learning, training with Tony Simms. When I get back into the ring at York Hall, nothing can surprise me – I’m ready for it all,” said Cash exclusively to World Boxing News.

“I’m really looking forward to it. The atmosphere is unbeatable, and it is always packed out.

“It’s been a bit of a shock coming back to England though, it’s freezing after the training camp in Portugal, but it’s been great training in the sunshine where there are no distractions.”

On training with the likes of Conor Benn and Ohara Davies, Cash added: “Everyone just pushes each other, all the young prospects together, it’s very exciting and a great laugh as well.”

Signed to Matchroom Boxing with Eddie Hearn, Cash was boosted into the spotlight on the Joshua undercard last summer.

“Getting given that kind of opportunity was unreal and I couldn’t have asked for anything better for the start of my career from Eddie Hearn. Now I’m focusing on a few more fights in 2017, before hopefully challenging for a title by the end of the year.

“Matchroom and Eddie are also doing fantastic things for boxing in general, like with Katie Taylor. It’s about time that women’s boxing came into the spotlight. In my opinion, the more people you can get watching, and the bigger the overall audience, it can only ever be a good thing for the sport of boxing overall. Bring on 2017”.

FELIX CASH – 2017 predictions:

Haye v Bellew – “ Haye will have it in the sixth round.”

Joshua v Klitschko – “Joshua wins for sure. There will be a KO there. I do not think this one will go the distance.”
