Ryno wants to win ‘at least a British title’
HILLINGDON boxer Ryan ‘Ryno’ Crawford steps into the limelight when he makes his professional boxing debut at the historic York Hall on Saturday, September 5.
The 28-year-old has previously boxed on the unlicensed boxing scene, where he was undefeated, and now takes on the tough Moses Matovu from Belfast in the Olivia Goodwin-promoted New Era show.
“I am ready to rumble and aim to inflict some pain” said Crawford. “I will take one fight at a time, but obviously my aim is to at least win a British title. This area has had some great boxers in the past, and I want to emulate them. I have great support and appreciate everyone getting behind me in my journey. I want all local boxing fans to join the movement come and support me.”
Crawford, who is turning pro with leading promoter-manager Steve Goodwin, is part of a 20-fight card featuring former European heavyweight champion Richard Towers, who has Adam Booth (David Haye’s former trainer) in his corner.
VIP and ringside tickets are sold out, but Crawford has some standard tickets left. Call 07803 443 585 for more details.
