Ochieng vs. Carruthers on March 9th in London, UK
Ochieng In Confident Mood, Ahead Of Carruthers March 9th Test
English Light Middleweight Champion Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng makes the
fourth defense of his crown, against the highly experienced Terry
Carruthers from Birmingham, at the Matchroom Sport promoted ‘Betfair
London’s Finest’ event, which takes place at Wembley Arena on Saturday,
the 9th March.
Ochieng, who has proved beyond doubt that he is fast becoming the dominant
force within the domestic Light Middle scene, having dispatched the likes
of Andrew Lowe, Ryan Toms and Max Maxwell since beating Nick Quigley to
lift the vacant title back in January last year, firmly believes that it’s
time to move on, to either challenge for the British or Commonwealth
“Yeah, the fight is going to be on the 9th March and it’s going to be a
good fight, because it’s against Terry Carruthers,” said the 25 year old
from Stoke Newington.
“He’s a tough, ugly fighter so I’m gonna come out and look pretty.
Preparation has been going well and we’re looking for another win and then
on to bigger things, which will be the British or the Commonwealth, that’s
what we are looking for at the minute.
I promise before this year ends you’ll be looking at the British or
Commonwealth Champion, without doubt.
I want to give a big shout out to all my fans and sponsors, Addison Lee,
Glenn Insurance. I want the ‘Eagle’ crowd to come out in force, because
the fight’s going to be a great fight.
Not just my fight, but they’ll be other great fights at ‘Betfair London’s
Finest’ and it’s gonna be a great night of action. TRAD TKO’s Danny Connor
defends his Southern Area against Chris Evangelou, my team mate and
another of the TRAD TKO crew, Wadi Camacho takes on China White for the
English Cruiserweight title, Darren Barker and Lee Purdy also fighting for
‘Eagle’, ‘Eagle’, ‘Eagle’ oh and I’m gonna be coming in to my track, Erick
The Eagle, yep that’s what I am going to be entering the ring with.”
