By John Hannen: Glenn Foot will win the forthcoming Prizefighter competition – that’s the view of the Sunderland puncher’s manager, Phil Jeffries.
Foot, undefeated in seven fights with four KOs, will take on seven other welterweights in the knockout tournament on January 19 in Wolverhampton, and Jeffries sees Foot as a cert to be the last man standing.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Glenn and I must thank my fellow promoter Eddie Hearn for giving us the chance to be involved,” stated Phil.
“Glenn’s style is made for the three-round Prizefighter format and, although there are some very good boxers involved, I really can’t see anyone else winning.
“He can bang and is aggressive from the very first bell and if you haven’t seen Glenn box before then you should expect fireworks!
“I guarantee that after Prizefighter Glenn will have a whole new fanbase and hopefully we can get him a great new promotional deal.”
