Exclusive: Willy Hutchinson eyes spot on May 5 undercard, predicts David Haye revenge KO
World youth amateur champion Willy Hutchinson has discussed with WBN the possibility of boxing on Haye vs Bellew II card on May 5th.
The young Scot, who is a tender 19 years old, gave his thoughts on featuring on such a big card after a successful amateur career, outlining that he wants to progress at speed in the paid ranks.
Hutchinson is currently 2-0 (2 KO’s) after two KO’s over Cyril Joly and Attila Tibor Nagy, and next up is pitted against Erik Mokonzo at York Hall February 16th.
“Training is going good, I have been in Germany for training camp and it’s gone really well, to be honest with you,” Hutchinson exclusively told World Boxing News.
“I’ve been getting some good sparring and good rounds with some local lads and I also had some good sparring back home before I got here,” he added.
If Hutchinson manages to come through Mokonzo, which he will be expected to do, a place on the Haye v Bellew II undercard potentially awaits.
When asked by WBN about the possibility, Hutchinson said: “Of course yeah it’s still a while away I’ll have to wait and see.
“It would be nice to get on that, of course I would want to box on the card, it would be amazing wouldn’t it? It would be a privilege but it’s a while away for me yet.
“It’ll be a good fight, but I think if Haye catches him he’s taking him clean out.
“I expect it to be just like the last one, but David hopefully is the man on the night and gets the job done.”
Willy Hutchinson will take on Erik Mokonzo this Friday night, alongside Joe ‘Juggernaut’ Joyce’s second pro bout against Rudolf Jozik of Croatia.
The third exciting match-up between current English Champion John O’Donnell (32-1, 11KO’s) and Tamuka Mucha of Reading (16-1 4 KO’s).
The Hayemaker Ringstar fight night will be broadcast on UK channel Dave from 9pm 16th of February
