Post-fight analysis

Walsh takes confident KO win

Ryan Walsh defended his British Featherweight title with a confident KO win over a hardworking Darren Traynor.

Walsh started aggressively, but it was only after a few rounds of solid pressure that a game Traynor began to wilt. The Norfolk fighter, backed by by his vocal Farmy Army supporters, stepped up through the gears in rounds four and five to finish off the Scottish challenger with a thumping combination of shots.

 

Pre-fight analysis

Ryan Walsh will make the first defence of his British Featherweight title against Darren Traynor on Friday 22 January at the pregistious York Hall in London.

The 29 year old who picked up the vacant title with a close split decision victory over Samir Mouneimne back on September's Man vs Machine card, will be looking to start the year with a bang.

Walsh now looks to make Traynor the first notch of the belt, but the undefeated challenger from Aberdeen, known as the ‘Trayn-Wreck’, has his own plans of upsetting Walsh in his maiden defence

“I’m ready to start a big 2016 and ultimately by the end of the year I’d like to have the British title as my own,” Said Walsh.

“Obviously other title opportunities may present themselves during the year, I’d love to get hold of the Commonwealth belt as well, seeing as Liam also holds the belt and we can create another bit of history by being the first twins to hold the British and Commonwealth belts at the same time, now that would something.  I’d also love to go for the European title which would be a dream to win.”

Lewis Pettitt, Ahmet Patterson, Ediz Hussein, Sam McNess, Billy Long, D.P. Carr and Ben Smith will all feature on the undercard.
