Jack Massey pushing for Lawrence Okolie or Matty Askin chances

Ringside 14/06/2018

Juggernaut cruiserweight Jack Massey is targeting titles after his stunning early stoppage of Ian Tims on the Tyson Fury undercard.

The young ‘One Smack Jack’ (14-0-KO7) caught the eye in front of his huge following with a ruthless second-round finish and feels ready for Commonwealth champion Lawrence Okolie or British titlist Matty Askin.

Massey said: “I’m ready for fights like Okolie and Askin now. I made a huge statement on the show the other night and have proven myself a danger to all cruiserweights.

“Stopping a fighter like TIms that quickly shows where I’m at. Boxers and trainers were telling me in the build-up to the fight just how tough he is but I just stayed cute in there.

“With me, everyone says I’ve got great power but I don’t let that go to my head. I keep boxing and relax, letting the shots flow. That’s when I knock people out and it’ll keep happening.

“If there was any ring rust, it’s gone now. My next fight or at the latest the one after, I want to fight for a major title. It’s time.

“I’m the one to beat all these cruiserweights. Okolie, Askin – I’m ready for anything so I’m just waiting to see where my management and my promoter want to put me.

“I’m just going to speak to the management and sees what is there. We’ll see what is the best route to go down but I’m ready for anything.”
