Eastwood light-heavyweight Andy Flint is back in the ring next weekend – just four weeks after he captured the EBF Novice Midlands championship.
He captured the belt with a thrilling second-round stoppage of Wayne O’Neill.
Flint is unbeaten in his ring career, but says his supporters haven’t seen the best of him yet.
“It takes me a couple of rounds to warm up and I will look better when the fights are longer,” said Flint, “but at the moment, my opponents keep falling over in the first couple of rounds.
“I could do with getting a few more rounds under my belt before I take the step to the next level.”
For Flint, that would mean a shot at full Midlands honours and the 32 year old said: “If a chance comes up at super middleweight, I can do that. I’m keeping my options open. It’s up to (manager) John (Ashton) to see what’s out there and take the right path for me.”
