Photos: Lewis Ritson, Francesco Patera - Go Face To Face

Lewis Ritson will face Francesco Patera for the Vacant EBU European Lightweight title at Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on October 13, live on Sky Sports.
 
‘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's signed to "Fa$t £ddie Hearn" who has interests in Monaco & the USA. Bloody hell fire! this lad could be a major star if he fought outside of the UK once in a while. I know he's only 24,…

Haven't seen Patera fight but his record is seriously underwhelming. A Belgian with 3Ls in 22 fights and a 32% KO rate. Pffft. And he's meant to be a step up from Paul Hyland? Lawd have mercy.
