As he stepped off the scales Walker, who has brought around 200 fans up from London with him, said: “I feel in terrific shape, I cannot wait for tomorrow night.”
The 29-year-old from Sidcup is used to the big occasion. In 2003 he was hailed as ‘Britain’s Most Exciting Boxer’ following a series of sensational Championship performances and boxed at the Alexandra Palace in front of around 5000 supporters.
Walker has once again re-iterated his desire to bring big time boxing back to the capital.
“I am going out there to win the title so that I can bring it back to London to defend,” he said. “I want to give my supporters some more big nights at home.”
Lightweight John Murray also boxes on the Matchroom Sports promoted card. He weighed 9 stone 6 lb 10 oz ahead of his 6 round clash against Tanzanian Oboto Ameme.
