Raza Hamza discusses forhcoming Liverpool appearance

RINGSIDE 15/04/2019

Undefeated featherweight Raza Hamza is determined to seize the limelight when he fights on Friday’s #MTKFightNight in Liverpool.

The promising Birmingham starlet (11-0-1, 6 KOs) heads for the Olympia looking to make a statement against Edwin Tellez and step up his pursuit for a maiden professional title.

Hamza, who has not fought since October, said: “I believe I’m ready for titles now and I’ll take any opportunity given to me by MTK Global. I can’t wait to become a champion.

“Being out of the ring for this long has taught me to stay patient and just wait for the opportunity.

“I’ve been in camp a long time and I’ve been working very hard. In this boxing game, it’s not all highs – you can have very low lows – but I’m ready to fight again and looking forward to it.

“This platform is great for us fighters. It’s very important that iFL TV get behind their boys and help them. There’s also the Top Rank and ESPN+ deal MTK Global have done, which is huge.”

Hamza looked impressive in downing Johnson Tellez with a devastating body shot in Leicester last time out.

Joining the 26-year-old on a busy night in Liverpool are the likes of Olympic history-maker Tasha Jonas, Jazza Dickens challenging for a Commonwealth title shot, former world title challenger Brian Rose and many more.
