Johnny Garton Expects a Real Fire Fight With Gary Corcoran

JOHNNY GARTON ADMITS that Gary Corcoran is a man after his own heart.

The pair come together in combat on Saturday at the Brentwood Centre - live on BT Sport - with the British welterweight title at stake.

The 31-year-old from Peckham - known as 'The Pexican' - insists there is no animosity on his part heading into the clash against 'The Hellraiser' from Wembley and actually places on record his admiration for the world title challenger, who was stopped in 11 by Jeff Horn in Brisbane last December.


It is a no quarter asked or likely to be given sort of fight and, the thinking in training circles is, whoever listens most to the wise words in the corner is expected to have the edge.

However, Garton - who expects to be roared on by some 250 Pexicans - fully anticipates himself and Corcoran reverting to type before too long.

"My trainer has said that the one of me and Gary who listens most in the corner will win and I do believe Al (Smith) is right there," considered the IBF European champion. "But this is going one way and me and Gary both know that no matter how technical we try and be, at some point in this fight we are going to stand in the middle and go at it.

"And I am more than happy to do that!

"Gary likes to come out fast and I am prepared for whatever, all I've worked for is a tough night and a tough 12 rounds. Gary is also super-fit and that is one thing we know for sure about him. He is also very strong and game, so we know we are going to do it tough.

"I'd say Gary will be the favourite in this fight and I think he deserves to be. He had a better amateur career, he's boxed at a higher level than I have as a pro and he has boxed better names.

"I like Gary and I have no problems with him. At the end of the day he is just who I've got to fight and he is my type of fighter. He will fight anyone, he's game and he comes forward. That is what I like in people."

Anthony Yarde will be headlining the Brentwood Centre on October 20th when he faces Argentinian Walter Gabriel Sequeira. World title challenger Gary Corcoran and Johnny Garton will contest the vacant British welterweight title. Zak Chelli and Umar Sadiq will both be putting their young, undefeated records on the line in a super-middleweight contest. Heavyweight Nathan Gorman will also feature along with IBF European Middleweight Champion Joe Mullender on the show televised live on BT Sport.

Remaining tickets are available at the Brentwood Centre box office or via calling the Queensberry Promotions Box Office on 01992845710.
