Battle: I’m Like Tyson And Mayweather Rolled Into One

December 10 2014

Battle dismisses Garton as one dimensional

It is only three days until the Goodwin Promotions “It’s Go Time” show to be shown live on Matchroom Fight Pass and the war of words is heating up between Adam Battle and Johnny Garton who co-deadline the 11 fight card.

Battle and Garton compete for the vacant Southern Area Welterweight title and outspoken Battle is super confident ahead of the title fight.

“Johnny Garton is one dimensional. I hit harder than Mike Tyson and counter punch like Floyd Mayweather”. Battle continued “I was due to fight Ahmet Patterson for this title earlier this year and Garton is much easier. I will win this fight no problem”

Garton was more reserved “I believe I can win this fight. I want 50/50 fights and now my manager/promoter has delivered me one. My training has gone perfect along side Alan Smith and I will be at my best this Saturday.
