“Raising the Bar” Liam Berrisford headline's is first show.

we speak to the rising star of Stoke on Trent about his up coming fight this weekend.

By John Edmans

Liam Berrisford, fighting out of Impact Boxing Gym in Stoke-on-Trent, is set to headline his first show “Raising the Bar” this coming Saturday 28th September. His training camp started with the prospect of fighting for the Midlands Area title, but his opponent pulled out at the last minute, making it impossible to find a replacement at such short notice. 

Scott Lawton, Berrisford’s manager and head coach, didn't want to disappoint his fans, so he has lined up a great fighter, Jordan Ellison, as a replacement. We asked Liam his thoughts about the disappointment of not fighting for the Midlands title this time around and his new opponent. He had this to say:

“Of course, I’m gutted that he pulled out of the fight. I've dreamt of winning this belt from the moment I turned pro.

“Stoke boxing is doing amazing at the minute with Jamal [Le Doux] and Nathan [Heaney] both current holders of the Midlands title, and Rhasian Earlington doing so well in Ultimate Boxxer. I just wanted to add to their success; I am still next in line with the British Boxing Board of Control but I cannot look past my next fight and anyone who has a record like Jordan’s should make for a great fight and a big test that I’m looking forward to.”

We also wanted to get to know Liam a little better, so we asked him a few quickfire questions.

1. What do you do for a living outside of boxing? 

Barber.

2. How did you get into boxing? 

Through football. Me and my mates used to go the pub after the game and play fight a lot, so our parents took us boxing to put it to some good use.

3. Who would you say is your biggest fan? 

My mum and dad. They support me through everything I do.

4. Who is your all-time favourite boxer?

I don't really have an all-time favourite boxer; I just love the sport and appreciate all styles and types of boxers.

5. If you could watch one fight from a retired boxer who would it be? 

Benn vs Eubank.

6. What is the hardest thing you find during training camp?

Dieting.

Liam asked us to say a special thanks to everyone who has bought tickets to his fights, and to his sponsors who help him. 

“Boxing is a very difficult and lonely sport; training for fights while having a full time job is very difficult but I believe with the hard work and dedication I will succeed and been more success to Stoke-on-Trent.”
