Aydin Promises To Impress With Corley, Win Title

Big test for former WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin who'll take on veteran DeMarcus Corley this Friday in Tekirdag, Turkey.
 
After losing to Roberto Guerrero in July 2012 and to Jesus Soto Karass in January this year, Aydin decided to move down in weight and compete at 140 lbs. The hard hitting Turk came back from his first two career defeats with two convincing wins over Giuseppe Lauri in March and Aaron Herrera in July. and is eyeing another world title shot soon.
 
“It wasn’t easy for me to cope with the losses,” says Aydin. “Of course, I know that I was fighting abroad and that it would be hard to get a decision win in the United States. I also know that I could and should have done better against Guerrero and Soto Karass.
 
"It feels like I let my fans and family done. It took me some time to get over it. But that is far behind me now. I feel a lot better at 140 than before. I feel very strong and also very fast. Nobody can stop me on my way to becoming a world champion.”
 
His opponent DeMarcus Corley, who's seen it all....and then some, will be an interesting test to see just how good the 30-year-old Turk really is. Corley went the distance with pound-for-pound-king Floyd Mayweather jr. back in 2004 and has also been in the ring with the likes of Miguel Cotto, Junior Witter, Randall Bailey, Marcos Maidana and Lucas Matthysse.
 
Corley is also used to traveling and fighting abroad. In 2012, the 39-year-old “Chop Chop” stopped local hero Paul McCloskey in the UK before losing a close decision to WBC no. 1 rated Viktor Postol in Kiev, Ukraine.
 
“I am sure that it will be a very exciting fight”, says promoter Ahmet Oner. “This is surely no gimme for Selcuk. He has to achieve a top performance to get past Corley who is an excellent gatekeeper. I believe in Selcuk, and think that he will become champion of the world. But he will have to prove himself in every single fight!”
