Ammann: Conquest Will Have To Nail Me To The Floor

Australian Daniel Ammann has promised to heap more misery on the English by beating Tony Conquest this Saturday (22nd February) at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.

Ammann challenges Romford ace Conquest with the Vacant Commonwealth Cruiserweight title on the line at the home of London boxing, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 449 and Virgin Ch. 546).

With England’s cricketers smashed 5-0 in the Ashes series, Ammann, known as “The Doberman”, is looking to carry on the drubbing in the ring against Conquest and take home the prized Commonwealth belt.

“I’m looking forward to Saturday night very much.  One things for sure I’m leaving Heathrow on Sunday morning with the belt around my waist,” Said Ammann.

“I’ve prepared good and hard and I’ve adjusted surprisingly quick to the time-zone, I feel fit and strong and ready to have a great fight against Conquest.  He’s a very tough kid, plenty of balls for a fight and I’m impressed with what I’ve seen of his fights online.  He got up from his knockdowns against Wadi Camacho in the first two rounds of their fight and took it to him.  I’m similar to him, you have to nail me to the floor to beat me, it’s going to be a fantastic fight between us and for the fans,”

“He’s got more fight about him than all eleven of your cricket boys!  You got hit for six in the Ashes but I’m looking to knockout Conquest for ten,”

“You Pommes have monopolised the Commonwealth title, I was looking at the ratings recently and the vast majority of the titles are held by English fighters.  I’ve got to start the trend to reverse that by taking the title home with me Saturday,”

The last Australian fighter to win the Commonwealth Cruiserweight title here was Adam Watt when he caused a huge upset to beat Bruce Scott inside four rounds in June 2000 in Glasgow and Ammann is confident he can do the same.

He added, “I spoke to Adam a few weeks ago and he told me what to expect and the mindset I need when I get into the ring.  He pulled off a big upset when he beat Scott, it can be done, and I’m going do it,”

“The Commonwealth title is held in high esteem in Australia, it’s got a lot of history and next to winning a world title, winning that belt will be the next best thing.”

A few remaining tickets are available from Queensberry Promotions on 01992 550 888.  Doors will open at 5pm with the first fight at 5.30pm. 

Watch Conquest v Ammann, plus an action-packed undercard featuring hot prospects Mitchell Smith and Tom Baker, on BoxNation, the Channel of Champions from 7pm on Saturday night. (Sky Ch.437/449 HD, Virgin Ch.546).  Join at www.boxnation.com
