Jarrod Fletcher Targets Les Sherrington Showdown

Working hard in the gym and a role model out of the ring, WBA #3 world ranked Jarrod Fletcher is looking to asset his authority on the middleweight division.
 
With the recent loss suffered by Daniel Geale, a big question mark now sits next to the question ‘Who’s Australia’s best middleweight ?’. Whilst Geale has the recent history to suggest he’s still the one, there’s a number of names looking to claim that honour. Sam Soliman, Anthony Mundine, Les Sherrington and Jarrod Fletcher can all stake a claim to be challenging as they are all world ranked. With Anthony Mundine again moving down a division, its Les Sherrington that ‘Left Jab’ Fletcher is looking to start with. His eyes and attention firmly looking in that direction with Sherrington’s upcoming fight.
 
“There’s a number of top quality boys in the division now” Fletcher says. “I believe I’m the best middleweight in the country, and I’ll fight anyone to prove that. Bring them all on, one-by-one. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the other boys, they’ve been around a long time and proven themselves, but now is my time and I will prove myself”. In a bold and confident statement from ‘Left Jab’ Fletcher he pushes out the challenge to Sherrington, “Les and I have done many rounds of sparring, I’ve had the better of some and he’s had the better of others. We match up well, so lets fight. I want to prove who Australia's number one really is. Then bring on Soliman in Melbourne. I wish Les all the best in his fight next week, I hope and want him to have an good win".
 
With four solid and impressive wins in the last 12 months, Fletcher is looking to clean up Australia prior to moving onto the rest of the world. “Like any boxer, I want to have my big title shot and I’ll fight anyone in the world, anyone. I'm WBA #3 so I'm ultimately looking to claim that title. But I’m also the proudest of Australians and I want to be regarded as the best in our division.”

At world level both Fletcher and Sherrington are complete nonentities.
