Watford boxer Daley Ojuederie hopeful of future British title challenge
After ten months away from the sport Watford boxer Daley Ojuederie returns to the ring on Saturday.
He takes on Joe Walsh and believes a victory would boost his British title ambitions.
The 27-year-old won national honours as an amateur and since turning professional is unbeaten in four fights.
He has suffered his fair share of injuries but believes 2013 could be a big year in his career.
Ojuederie, who has a new trainer in Don Charles, said: “I’ve had a long break and now I want to push on and show everyone what I can do.
“The middleweight division is red hot, but I believe I can get in the mix.
“By the start of 2014, Don wants me to be challenging for the British title and I know he wouldn’t be training me if he didn't think I could go places.”
He takes on Walsh at the Camden Centre and his promoter Mickey Helliet believes his fighter is in “tip-top shape”.
Ojuederie helps run a recording studio in London and says the job allows him the time to train when required.
He explained: “I’m my own boss, so can take time off to train when I have a fight coming up.
“Maybe I could have been a singer, but I never took it seriously. Boxing has always been my passion.”
