‘The Sandman’ won the British Lightweight title outright by defeating the previously unbeaten challenger Paul Hyland Jr at the Metro Radio Arena in June and is predicting another destructive performance against Patera in October.

Patera is no stranger to fighting on these shores, having lost a close decision to Birkenhead hardman Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd for the WBC International title in 2016. He went on to beat Finland’s Edis Tatli to win the European title in May 2017 before losing out in a rematch later that year.
 
Ritson gets his shot at European honours after Tatli decided to vacate his belt.

Both Lewis Ritson & Josh Kelly deserve to be showcased on Fa$t £ddie's next Monaco card. A showing in the USA would also do no harm.

I think Patera might go the distance

How can you not love Lewis Ritson? Cracking nickname as well.

Just another for the Sandman to put to slerp. Hopefully by spring '19 Ritson gets at least a legit top 15 contender to test himself against.
