Scott Cardle Exclusive

The Former British Lightweight Champion Looks To Put Things Right This Weekend Against Lewis Ritson

By

By Aaron Cooper

Former British Lightweight Champion, Scott Cardle will look to reclaim the British Lightweight Title this Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

However, Cardle is in for a tough night against a man who has exploded onto our screens last month. Ritson claimed the British title by beating the very man that ground Cardle’s rise up the domestic ranks to a shuddering halt. Ritson furthered his rise by making a huge statement by blowing away Joe Murray in just a single round on the Sky NxtGen card in Manchester last month.

Speaking exclusively to Intu Boxing, Cardle had this to say about what is arguably the biggest fight of his career.

“Camps gone perfect to be fair, I’ve been trying for quite awhile now just staying ready. I’m quite happy with the time, and quite happy with how the fights ended up, I'm well prepared.”

“What happened was I got a call on new years eve, I was in Italy at the time. Then I got the call saying I was fighting Ritson on February 3rd (The British Beef Card). So from then on my mind was on that day. Being in Italy didn't help. But I was training every day, and fully on it for Feb 3rd.”

“Joe Gallagher (Cardle’s trainer) wasn’t happy with the time that we’d been given for the fight, which is understandable. I was told by Eddie (Hearn) in November, that I’d be fighting Ritson at the end of February/Start of March time, which would have been ideal. Obviously, the position I was in at the time it wasn’t for me to decline, it was an opportunity for me that I was given. It wasn’t for me to say no I wouldn’t be ready in time, so I had to fight the odds and get training straight away.”

“Joe is a protective coach kind of way didn't want that to happen. I’m quite glad Joe was persistent enough to do what he did, and it’s all fallen into place.”

It’s good to be getting back to fighting for the British title and good to be getting back to the same arena where I won the first.”

Scott had this to say about the man he faces Saturday night.

“A lot of people have been raving about his performance, and let’s be honest they have every right to. He was very critical the way he dealt with Joe Murray. But with that being said. Joe Murray wasn’t the kid I remember when he was training with us. But Joe stepped in for me and took the fight at short notice. I’ll be honest, Lewis in his last performances he’s done what he had to do, he has shown himself and impressed a lot of people. It speaks volumes his last two performances, I know I’ve got a tough night ahead of me. But with that being said I think everyone knows he’s not fought anyone at my kind of level.”

“I’ve shown my heart in the Masher Dodd fight, I came through with a knockout win. I’ll be honest the Barrett fight I wasn’t interested. I felt a bit fed up with what I was doing, I felt like I was stood still. I was kept on defending it and felt the belt should have been mine there and then before that fight. I didn’t really care much about Barrett, I was just getting in the ring to fight. There was just no passion behind that fight.”With this fight, I feel like I’ve got a point to prove, a statement to make and I’ve got a lot of doubters to prove wrong as well. There’s a lot of motivation going into this one. I really do think you'll see the best Scott Cardle on the night.”

The Ritson/Cardle fight provides support to a fantastic night of boxing on Sky Sports which will also include the British Light-Heavyweight Title fight between Champion Frank Buglioni and challenger Callum Johnson. The main event, of course, being the WBC Silver Heavyweight Title bout between Dillian Whyte and Lucas Browne as both men look to further their claim for a shot at one of the division’s champions.
