Gary Buckland Targets Ermano Fegatilli's Championship

GARY BUCKLAND is targeting European super-featherweight champion Ermano Fegatilli.

The all-action Newport fighter wants the Belgian after tomorrow’s  Sat (March 24th) British super-featherweight title defence against Paul Truscott (18-2) at Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield.

Fegatilli won the title 13 months ago when he shocked  another Hatton Promotions boxer Stephen Foster Jr – who is mandatory challenger to the Buckland-Truscott winner.

But Buckland (24-2) is thinking big and said: “I don’t want to look past Truscott, but I want Fegatilli after this.

“Believe me though, I am not overlooking Truscott who is a good tidy boxer, but gets drawn in. Hopefully I can draw him into a fight and he’ll play into my hands.”

Injury prevented Buckland having a South Wales homecoming against former Commonwealth featherweight champion Buckland last November.

But he reckons he’ll be happy returning to the venue where he took the title from Gary Sykes back in September.

He added: “It was disappointing when I got injured and didn’t box him at the end of last year, but when you get that Lonsdale belt you don’t want to lose it for no reason.

“I am going back to Sheffield and it is just like boxing at home in South Wales. It is a great arena and hopefully it’ll bring me luck again.

“I was treated well last time and the fans in Sheffield know I always do my best to produce exciting fights.”

Other fights: Patrick Mendy v Bradley Pryce, Sergey Rabchenko v Ronny Gabel, Richard Towers v Harold Sconiers, Adam Etches v Stilian Kostoc, Scott Jenkins v Adrian Fuzesi, Mitchell Butler v Francis Maina, Carl Bell v TBA,  Jason Cunningham v Ryan McNichol and Jak Perry  v Beki Moyo.

Boxing starts at 6pm and the handful of tickets remaining are priced £35 general admission, £55 floor seating, £75 ringside and £100 VIP
