WBC Latino Light Middleweight Champion Jimmy Colas today spoke for the first time about his upcoming International Masters clash with Yassine El Maachi at the Steve Goodwin promoted ‘Judgement Day’ double title super show at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 4th December.
“I am coming to England as I want to show the British public who Jimmy Colas is and this will be nothing more than an exhibition match.” said the France based Haitian before continuing, “There is no British Light Middleweight who can beat me. El Maachi is not even in the top 10 of what I consider to be your poor quality boxers. In Britain you all protect your boxers.”
Although having fought most of his fights in France, Colas has shown that he is not just happy to travel, having traveled to Germany to secure the European Union Light Middleweight title in 2005 and Haiti when he won the WBC Latino title last year, but actively craves fighting on the world scene.
“I fight anybody and when the chance came to fight El Maachi I jumped at it. I have looked at El Maachi on the internet and he offers nothing.” before turning his focus beyond the El Maachi clash, “It will be an easy fight for me and then I want to box Lukas Konecny for the European title. I lost a majority points decision, hotly disputed which I really won, in 2009 to Konecny and look what he did to your Matthew Hall.”
The importance of this contest is not lost on Colas, or El Maachi to that matter, as the victor will rocket up the world rankings. However Colas is in bullish mood and makes it quite clear that he intends that it will be him in contention for a world title shot in 2011 with his parting shot, “El Maachi will be humiliated in front of his own fans. I will make it a painful night for him.”
Yassine El Maachi versus Jimmy Colas for the International Masters Light Middleweight title will take place at York Hall, Bethnal Green, London on Saturday the 4th December 2010.
Co-headlining ‘Judgement Day’ will be Ryan ‘Mr Attitude’ Barrett who will be defending his newly won International Masters Lightweight title, against the heavy hitting Hungarian knockout artist Istvan Nagy.
There are no less than twelve top class support fights including the highly anticipated all girl Featherweight clash, rescheduled from September 11th, between Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym’s Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston, and the highly experienced Welsh battler Lana Cooper.
