Paul Butler: I Have Stuey Hall's Number, I'll KO Him

Paul Butler says that he’s got Stuart Hall’s number and will knockout the IBF World Bantamweight Champion on Saturday 7th June at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.

The Ellesmere Port ace is fired up for the all-British thriller - live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546) - after reading Hall’s comments saying that he is an easier opponent than American Randy Caballero.

Now the unbeaten 25-year-old says that Hall will find out who is the real-deal on the night.

“I’m glad that Hall thinks I’m easier than Caballero, he’ll find out for sure on the night what Paul Butler is all about, he’s going to be in for a massive shock,” Stormed Butler.

“I’m reading all this rubbish he’s saying about holding out for more money to fight me.  I didn’t hear him bleating about holding out for more money to fight Martin Ward.  It’s as plain as day for everyone to see, Hall knows how dangerous I am and wanted the most money he could to fight me because he knows that once I’ve finished with him this will be his last fight and final pay day,”

“I know that I’ve got to him already, I’ve got Hall’s number and he knows it.  He says I talk a lot, but I’m only saying the truth.  I handled him two years ago when we sparred, now I’m two years more experienced, smarter, stronger and quicker.  Back then I even went out of my orthodox stance and sparred him southpaw to help him for his fight against Haskins and I still got the better of him,”

“I don’t believe that he has improved since the Jamie McDonnell fight and that was nearly three years ago. Technically and skills wise he’s limited and he knows his limitations, what he does have bags of is balls.  My hat goes off to him for his performance over Vusi Malinga to win the title, he dug deep to win, but that was his ultimate glory night and he won’t repeat that again,”

“Talk is cheap and we can go back and forth with comments, but I’ll back up my talking in the ring with my actions.  I’m leagues above this guy and it’s down to me to show I’m the business by knocking him out on the night to leave no doubt who is the better man.  Just watch me, I’lI smoke his boots.”

Pretty classless to refer to closed door sparring sessions; anyway, we all know sparring is sparring and a fight is a fight. I reckon Hall's size and experience will prove crucial, Butler really hasn't fought anyone and he's a midget…
