British welterweight Shayne Singleton returns to the ring as chief support on the HayeDay under card on January 16th, in an explosive British Title eliminator bout versus Irish southpaw John O’Donnell a fight which many fans and experts believe will steal the show.
The British title means a lot to Shayne Singleton and he believes John O’Donnell is in deep waters come January 16th. “I’m going to take him round by round; I’m going to make him question himself. He’s not going to know what’s going on. I’m going to make him think ‘what am I doing? I want this more than him.’
Singleton is excited to be fighting at the O2 arena on a show that is reportedly close to a sell-out. “This is the biggest capacity I have fought in front of, I only ever dreamed of fighting for a Masters title, I’ve already over achieved, my next dream is to win the British title, this eliminator is crucial for me.”
The man nicknamed ‘The Pain’ believes the southpaw stance from O’Donnell will not be an issue. “I have boxed twelve southpaws throughout my career in amateurs and in the pro ranks. I always do well against southpaws. I’ve never lost to a southpaw and I’ve knocked out most of the southpaws I’ve faced in the amateurs and pros. John is overlooking me in a big way, if he’s going by the Eggington fight he’s in for a big shock!”
Singleton stated he does not like to predict the outcome of his fights, but believes O’Donnell will not be able to keep up the pace with him. “If he can take a shot I will beat him on points. If he can’t, he’s going to sleep. He can’t win this either way.”
