Exclusive: Tom Farrell itching for March 10 return, aims to impress prior to Amir Khan bill
Tom Farrell wants to shake the ring rust off after five months out of the ring when he steps back into the squared circle on March 10th. ‘Fazza’ wants to propel himself back into the limelight.
The 28 year-old is looking to bounce back from his sole career defeat, which he suffered at the hands of Ohara Davies last September.
Farrell will be topping the bill at the Auditorium in Liverpool against an opponent yet to be announced, but whoever the popular scouser squares up against, he won’t be taking it lightly.
When quizzed about potential opponents, Farrell exclusively told World Boxing News: “I don’t know if it’s going to be a foreign-based opponent or a journeyman but I’d imagine it would probably be a tougher fight with somebody from abroad.
“I can’t take this lightly though, I’m not stupid, I probably will have a bit of rust there as I haven’t boxed since the end of September. I have had literally five months and it’s the longest I haven’t boxed for.”
Farrell is expected to get back to winning ways next week and furthermore, doesn’t want any ‘easy touches’ when he appears on the undercard of Amir Khan’s highly anticipated comeback at the Echo Arena April 21st following on from an expected win on March 10th.
“Obviously if I perform well then I’ll take that into the next fight and I’ll look to be even better on the Echo Arena show.
“I’m not too sure what Eddie Hearn and Matchroom have got in mind for me, but they know I’m fighting on this Steve Wood (March 10) show to just get back in there.
“I’m not fussed what they throw my way, I’m not going to be wanting any easy touches. I’ll happily step back up to the plate and I’m more than ready to step into the limelight again and the big fights.” Farrell added.
