Andy Bell Can't Wait To Face Nelson

Andy Bell has gone to Tenerife ahead of his forthcoming inaugural English Super-Flyweight Title but claims it has been no holiday.

While most British people on the Spanish island arrive for a relaxing break, the Doncaster boxer has been training hard to get ready for his fight against fellow Yorkshireman Robert Nelson at the The Dome at Doncaster Lakeside on Friday, September 7 in a show to be screened live on Sky Sports.

The show, in association with Title Partners, features Bradford’s Junior Witter in a defence of his WBC Light-Welterweight Title against Guyana’s Vivian Harris as top of the bill.

Bell, 22, is chief support and the Doncaster boxer is confident of keeping his home town support happy on the night thanks to training abroad.

Bell – the British Masters and Midlands Area Bantamweight Champion – sees victory as taking him a step closer to a shot at the British Title next year.

“This is my toughest fight yet so that’s why I have come abroad for a couple of weeks,” said Andy, who returns to England on Tuesday.

“I’m running up the mountain and on the beach here and because of the altitude it’s tougher to train out here. I feel the difference and I’m going to be in top shape.

“I’ve beaten Mo Khaled and Delroy Spencer who he could only draw with, so that has given me some hope as well. I beat them both on points and felt I won every round.

“I’ve gone ten rounds before when I beat Khaled for the British Masters Title in June. I’ve fought four times in four months so I’m feeling fit and ready for this.

“If I win this title, I reckon I will be ready for a shot at the British Title after another fight.

“I fight in the colours of Doncaster Rovers and fighting in my home town in front of my home fans will be a big boost.”
