Swindon welterweight Ryan Martin is confident he will get another title shot when the time is right.
The 24-year-old has already contested both a WBC Youth title and IBO Continental title and despite losing on both occasions believes he has proven he belongs at that level.
Martin is currently on a three-fight winning streak and is looking forward to boxing in Swindon again on April 27th when he fights on the “Fight Town 1” show.
The former Walcot amateur star admitted he would have like to have contested a title in April but that wasn’t to be and he revealed he is instead prepared to be patient in his quest for another title shot.
“We wanted a title for this show ideally but anyone who has been involved or worked in the business of boxing knows it is not always the easiest thing to manoeuvre yourself into positions,” said Martin. “Sometimes it’s sensible to take a couple of harder fights before you take the jump.
“We don’t want to take any jumps too soon, I’d rather be patient and get titles rather than jump the gun a bit.
“On a personal level I have just got to confirm a couple of things are right where they need to be, get some winning records, people I think are worthy of stepping in the ring with me, enough to stimulate me and excite me a little bit, and then we go from there.
“We’ll find ourselves in position for titles naturally as long as we keep winning and moving up the ranks, we’ll get a call or we’ll be able to petition for a title.”
Martin co-headlines the “Fight Town 1” show which is promoted by Neilson Boxing in association with Paddy Fitzpatrick and Trifecta Boxing.
The show is set to feature at least 15 fights with Swindon boxers Luke Watkins and Bec Connolly just two of a host of local boxers featuring on the bumper card.
Tickets are now on sale and can be obtained by contacting any of the boxers or via the Neilson Boxing website www.neilsonboxing.co.uk
