Michael Walsh believes his brother, Ryan Walsh, is on another level to Dennis Ceylan, ahead of their European Featherweight Title fight at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
The oldest of the trio of fighting brothers, Michael won all of his 11 contests as a professional. Now helping to guide his younger siblings in their own careers, he thinks Ryan will have too much for the unbeaten Ceylan.
“My brother works far too hard, and there’s no way he’s going to let Dennis take this opportunity away from him, whether they’re fighting in his hometown, his back garden or his front room,” said Walsh. “Dennis is fighting at home so he is going to give it his all, but it’s not going to be good enough.
“Dennis hasn’t got enough experience to beat my brother. He has never fought anyone near his level. Ryan has fought a handful of people as good, if not better, than Dennis, and he’s dealt with them all inside five rounds.”
Walsh also warned the Dane that he faces getting stopped if he plans on coming forward against Ryan, the British Featherweight Champion.
“If Dennis comes to run, he might last twelve rounds, but if he comes to fight, he’s getting knocked out! I know Ryan is coming to fight. If Dennis comes and delivers the same thing for his fans, it’s going to be an exciting fight while it lasts, and we go home with the European title,” added Walsh through a Sauerland Promotions press release.
Liam Walsh won his IBF World Title eliminator at the weekend and on Saturday its Ryan’s turn to take a step towards world level. Watch the action live on BoxNation from 7pm.
