Ricky Boylan from Carshalton, Surrey, competes for the Southern Area title on the 14th of December at the Excel Arena against fellow local rival, Tony Owen. Ricky is unbeaten in nine fights with three of those ending with knockouts. In his last fight he won the British Masters (bronze) title. We managed to catch up with him today whist in camp making his final preparations. This is what he had to say…..
How did it feel to win your first title in your last fight?
It was no major title but a stepping stone that was needed, I also managed to get eight rounds under my belt and am now ready for the 14th of December.
Would it be fair to say that your upcoming southern area title fight against Tony Owen is your toughest test to date?

Tony is local to yourself also being from Carshalton, do you know him or have you even sparred with him in the past?
We’re good friends and have sparred each other many times, but this is a business and he’s got what I want and need. I’m here to take that Southern Area title from him, but we’ll shake hands before and after and stay friends that’s for sure.
