TRAD TKO’s sensational young Heavyweight prospect Paulius Kasiulevicius is back in action this coming Friday, on the Johnny Eames TRAD TKO Events promoted BROTHERS IN ARMS show at York Hall.
As I’m sure many of you will recall, that back in May Johnny boldly stated that the two time Lithuanian Amateur Heavyweight Champion is a future World Champion.
Two exceptional stoppage wins later and now it seems many of the established boxing hierarchy are of the same opinion as the esteemed Mr Eames.
The normal route for an upcoming fighter is to be ‘eased in’ with moderately easy fights at first, not so for Paulius, for his first fight Johnny selected Frantisek Kynkal, whose record stood at three fights, two wins both by stoppage finish and the one loss on his debut.
Paulius made short work of the Czech, stopping him in just two minutes and twenty five seconds of the first round.
On his second outing, in July, Johnny selected Latvian Janis Ginters, who like Kynkal was straight coming off a first round stoppage win, as well as two having two stoppage finishes on his record.
Once again Paulius proved his credentials, stopping the Latvian #3 ranked Ginters after one minute and forty two seconds of the second round.
For his upcoming third bout, this coming Friday, Johnny is lining up another serious test for the big Lithuanian, whilst no details have been released at this time, it is expected to be yet another stern test for the 24 year old.
Facing such opponents clearly doesn’t faze Paulius one iota, as he made clear when he spoke earlier.
“Yeah, Johnny is keeping me busy, which I like.
I won both my fights by stoppage, I think I the next one will be the same, I hope, I’m working on that.
We’re working well, training hard, you see the results.
The first ones were easy, wasn’t really hard fights for me, I know my skills, I know what to do.
My opponent, just looking at him I straight away know what to do, this is my skills, I have fifteen years boxing so I look at my opponent and know what to do, my strategy and how I can box him.
I don’t know his name, I think he’s British, I don’t know his name but it doesn’t matter anyway, I think he’s not happy for that, fighting with me but you can’t say nothing before a fight when it’s heavyweight, one punch and the fight is finishing, both ways, so I’m not saying I will knock him out or he will knock me out, we’re just boxing and we’ll see.
I’ve been sparring with many guys, big names as well, so I’m ready to get back into the big ring.
Thanks for the support of my fans, everyone else come and support me for the more knockouts I’m going to do.”
Paulius Kasiulevicius, against a yet to be named opponent, features on the undercard of Nathan Graham’s Southern Area Light Middleweight Title defense against Freddie Turner, that headlines the Johnny Eames TRAD TKO Events promoted ‘Brothers In Arms’ event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Friday 18th October 2013.
