Paddy Gallagher, Freddy Kiwitt make weight for WBO Euro clash

RINGSIDE 21/02/2019

Paddy Gallagher was a picture of health as he successfully made weight for Friday night’s WBO European welterweight title clash with Freddy Kiwitt.

Belfast’s ‘Pat-Man’ bids for the title on a stacked MTK Global card at London’s iconic York Hall – broadcast live on iFL TV – and was comfortably inside the 140lb limit before a respectful face-off with his German opponent.

Gallagher said: “This camp has been good. I was already training and then got six weeks’ notice which is great – quick and dirty does me and I’ve been flying through things. 

“All the lads are in fine form and I’ve been working with a new nutritionist Tony O’Neill which has definitely helped a lot.

“With regards to Kiwitt, as always, I watched a few short clips and know what he’s about but I’ve left all the watching and tactical decisions up to Gerard, then I’ll go and execute the gameplan.”

Other fighters to hit the scales included south London’s fast-rising light-heavyweight Dan Azeez and former world kickboxing champion Liam Wells of Essex.

Joining the trio on a packed bill at the home of British boxing are the likes of Siar Ozgul, Sultan Zaurbek, Nurtas Azhbenov, Donovan Mortlock, Jack Ewbank, Michael Elliott, Daniel Egbunike and more.
