Ryno wants to win ‘at least a Bri­tish ti­tle’


Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
