Hollis Hoping To Maintain Unbeaten Start
Ross ‘Rossy’ Hollis is hoping to maintain winning form when he enters the squared circle next Saturday (16th February) writes Ben Gibson.
Hollis last fought on the 4 May last year against Kevin McCauley in which he won by a points decision.
This victory followed an impressive professional debut where he beat Sean Gorman by a technical knockout in the fourth round after Gorman was down twice in the third.
“I am feeling great for the fight and I cannot wait to get in there,” he told bcb-promotions.com. “It is a good feeling to have and I make sure that I train my hardest so that I don’t lose it.
“It gives me a lot of confidence in the work that I am doing.”
As a fairly new professional Ross juggles his job as a factory worker with his training but hopes it will be worth it in the long run.
“I train six days a week and out of those six days I will train twice on three of them.
“I do have to juggle work with training but it isn’t bad because my company allow me to work hours around my training.
“Since I was an amateur I have always wanted to turn pro and go on to achieve the highest level that I can in the pro rankings.
“It can be hard at times especially being away from my kids; that is the hardest thing.
“A world title is in my dreams and if I just keep doing as my trainer tells me then I don’t see why I can’t achieve one. It will all be worth it though.”
The six-round welterweight main event at the Town Hall will see Damian Kiwior, from Poland but based in Wolverhampton, tackle Cornwall’s undefeated Wes Smith.
The rest of the undercard is stacked, with the other support acts occupying the home corner a mix of prospects and contenders.
