Lee Haskins Aims To Rock The House at City Academy

London - Lee Haskins "can't wait" to get back out in front of his home fans at the City Academy, Bristol, live on Channel 5 tomorrow night.

The British bantamweight champion, Haskins, takes on the dangerous 25-year-old former British and Commonwealth title challenger, Luke Wilton.

"I'm feeling wicked, it's going to be the third time at the City Academy in front of my home fans for another big night," Haskins said.

"I'm training hard, I've got no problems, my camp has been great. I'm fit and strong and I'm looking forward to getting in there."

Haskins, who boasts 28 wins with 12 knockouts, weighed in on the bantamweight limit and is focussed on showing why he feels he is ready to fight for a world title when he enters the ring on Saturday night.

He takes on Belfast-based Wilton, who also comes into the contest on the bantamweight limit. Wilton is determined and ready to fight, having been training for his upcoming March 21st contest.

Boasting 15 wins with seven knockouts and having challenged for major domestic titles, Wilton is looking to to cause a big upset in front of Haskins' home crowd.

"I'm feeling great and ready to go," Wilton said.

"There could be 10,000 people there supporting him but come fight time, it's just me and him and it's not going to make any difference to the result, I'm going to win.

"I'm glad of the opportunity and jumped at the chance to face Haskins and over 10 rounds I'll show everyone who I am and what I'm all about.

"I feel really strong, I've been training for my fight on March 21st anyway so I'm fit and ready to win."

But the Bristol bantamweight is aware of that risk and motivated by it; feeling unbeatable on home soil and ready to show it when he meets Wilton tomorrow.

"In front of Bristol I feel like I can't be beaten, I thank everyone for the support and I'm looking to give them another great performance tomorrow night," Haskins said.

They compete over 10 x 3minute rounds as chief support to James DeGale MBE's WBC Silver super middleweight title defence against the undefeated former IBO Youth champion Gevorg Khatchikian.

Also scheduled to fight on the March 1st show is Bristol’s own Dan Sarkozi, Lee Nutland, Ashley Lane and Weston super-Mare's Liam Hunt in his professional debut.
