Lee Haskins, from Bristol,England will box for the WBC International Title on the March 1 show at the City Academy in Bristol. Haskins who is rated #5 by the WBC will box Elton Dharry ranked #23, from New York.
Haskins has aired his frustrations of late that none of the champions will give him a shot at a world championship. He believes that the only way to achieve his world title dream is to force a mandatory position with one of the governing bodies:
“All of the world champions out there have been offered to fight me but none of them want to take the risk. I am a dangerous opponent for anyone at bantamweight and I don’t think it unfair to say that I am being avoided. Winning this WBC International title will give me a secure ranking in the top five of the WBC and I will hopefully be able to become mandatory.”
The addition of the WBC international title fight rounds off the bill at the City Academy. The event will be headlined by WBC Silver Champion James Degale with Haskins providing the chief support, the card will be fully supported by a host of local talent, both title fights will be shown live on Channel 5 in the UK.
