Unbeaten Archway light-middleweight Tony Milch intends to demonstrate his championship credentials when he returns to the ring at York Hall next month.

Milch, who picked up the International Challenge belt in his last outing against Bulgaria’s Konstantin Alexandrov, wants the chance to add more prestigious titles over the coming months.

And the 35-year-old, who has won all 11 of his fights to date, feels his six-round clash with experienced Norwich fighter Duane Green on Saturday November 5 will nudge him closer to realising that ambition.

“I’ve had a few stepping stone fights – this one should be more competitive and it’s what I need,” Milch told the Gazette. “I want to mix it up with some good fighters.

“Kevin McCauley was a tough opponent a couple of fights back and this is another dangerous fighter. I know I’ve got to keep my eye on the ball and put on a show.

“I’m putting the work in with my trainer Ian Burbage and I had a good session of sparring with Bradley Skeete – hopefully I’ll get a few more in before November 5.

“I’ll be looking to end the year in style and prove I’m championship class and hopefully this can get me closer to either the Southern Area or English title.”

Tickets for the Hellraiser Promotions show on November 5 are priced at £35 (or £60 ringside).
