Idris Hill readies himself for 'blockbuster' fight at Alexandra Palace
IDRIS Hill has told boxing fans to “get their popcorn ready” and prepare for a blockbuster of a fight, when he steps through the ropes next month at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London.
The 29-year-old welterweight from Southend will challenge Kent’s undefeated champion David Cove for the Queensbury Boxing League’s Regional title on the undercard of the big Kings Of The Palace promotion headlined by the domestic fight of the season between British Middleweight champion Ruben Giles and challenger Gareth Gardner.
And Hill says he is leaving no stone unturned in the build up to the showdown as he prepares for the biggest fight of his career.
“This title fight is the biggest and most important fight of my career, and I’m making sure my preparations will be 100 per cent right to ensure I lift that title on July 12,” said Hill.
“In my last fight against Marc Wimbledon I did enough to win but I felt there was still lots of improvements to be made after watching the whole fight back, and since March I’ve been in the gym working on correcting those mistakes to make sure I’m in the best possible shape for this test.
“Training wise I’m doing everything right and getting all the right sparring in preparation for the night, but I’ve not really studied to much on Cove as I let my coach work out the game plan and I just follow what he says.
“I think this really is going to be an incredible night of boxing and one the fans are going to remember for a very long time, and with the show being called Kings Of The Palace, I’m looking at being crowned champion after a great battle.
Hill’s contest will feature as one of the chief supporting fights taking place on Saturday, July 12, at the Alexandra Palace in London.
