Butlin Looking For a Stoppage

Tamworth's David Butlin will be having his second professional contest at Planet Ice Solihull (10.05.23). The show is promoted by Tommy Owens Promotions and will be over four rounds in the light Heavyweight division.

I caught up with the light Heavyweight and asked him how his training had gone for this fight. He told me “Training has been really good; I'm feeling a lot better in my second camp than I did in my first as I have started to find my pro-style”. He continued “My technic and power have come along in this camp and I’m feeling fitter training twice a day and sparring some good pros. I then asked Butlin if he had changed anything in his training for this fight. He said, “Not really no, we have kept it the same but I am improving all the time”. David then informed me he will have another massive support behind him. He told me “Yeah I’m bringing massive support I will have sold over a hundred tickets by the start of the show”.

I then ask David for a prediction on how he thought the fight would go. He said “I will be looking for the big KO on this show, I think I have the power to do it, stoppage in the second or third”.

David finished by saying “I’m looking forward to a great night of boxing and putting on a great performance which will be the fight to watch.


Dexter’s Thoughts

I had the privilege of being at Butlin’s first fight in Coventry where he beat Genadiji Krajevskij on points. He controlled the fight from start to finish winning every round, I did say in my report on that fight that he still had an amateurish style but like he said he had now adapted to a more pro-style which will make him a dangerous opponent. If he has now upped his power he has the potential to go far I look forward to seeing him on this show.
