He’s been asked to find an opponent who can take KO specialist Arthur Hermann a few rounds.
The London-based German middleweight has walloped his way to a perfect 11-0 slate with 10 KOs and steps up to eight-round level on Helliet’s show at the Camden Centre on Friday, July 18.
His last two fights there have ended in quick knock-out wins – and trainer John Tandy hopes his fighter has a tougher night’s work next month.
Tandy said: “We would like to see Arthur get a few rounds under his belt.
“But it’s difficult because he hits so hard.
“On paper, his last two opponents (Norbert Szekeres and Nodar Robakidze) should have taken Arthur a few rounds, but he hit too hard for them.
“Arthur has had good sparring with Frank Buglioni, but needs the experience of hard, competitive rounds.”
Hermann is pencilled in to box again in August and is being steered towards a crack at the IBF International title later this year.
Hermann lives in Angel – a short walk from Tandy’s gym – and he’s got a new housemate.
Yasin Basri won amateur honours in Germany, but rather than pursue the 2016 Olympics, the 22 year-old has decided to turn professional in Britain.
He has moved into the house where Hermann lives and will be matched at light-heavyweight on the Camden show.
“We’ve got a really good set up here,” said Tandy. “We’ve got sponsors who rent out a house and we put the fighters up, feed them and they don’t have to worry about selling tickets.
“That enables us to pinch boxers like Yasin !
“There are still two empty rooms in the house and we are looking to move in a couple of British fighters.
“We are holding trials in the next few weeks.”
Tickets for the show at the Camden Centre are available from 07592-399185.
