Ashley Vanzie: My power play is key
9:00pm Thursday 20th February 2014 in Sport
Bradford’s Ashley Vanzie believes his punch power will make up for any weight loss in the British University boxing championship finals in Sheffield today.
Vanzie will tip the scales at 75kg – the bottom of the catchment weight for the light-heavy competition.
But he said: “Giving away a massive 5kg is usually a big no no in boxing but I am confident my skills will bring me through.”
Vanzie, coming off a close defeat to Irish Olympian Darren O’Neill, also boxes tomorrow in a home show at Dewsbury Town Hall.
