Stone Cold Steve Swinburn to “dominate the ring” against Monsoor Wali

Posted: June 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

A fired-up Steve Swinburn has revealed a change of tactics ahead of his tussle with  big hitting Monsoor Wali this weekend.

The undefeated welterweight boxer has been absent from the ring for almost eight months but insists the break has served as the perfect chance to reflect on his impressive professional career so far.

Following a controversial draw against Jay Morris back in October, a fight most at ringside thought Swinburn had won, the Lincoln fighter has decided it is time to dominate the centre of the ring.

And he plans to put it into action against Wali in their clash at the Don Valley Arena on Saturday.

“I have got to stop running round the ring at 100 miles an hour,” said the 26-year-old.

“I am going to calm down a bit, plant my feet in the centre of the ring and dominate from there.

“That’s what I have been working hard on in training.”

Swinburn has endured a lengthy spell of inactivity because of a nose operation in January.

Despite the disappointing draw last time out, Swinburn, who is dubbed Stone Cold, still boasts an impressive record.

The former kickboxer has won five and drawn two of his opening seven bouts and is eyeing a shot at an Area title next year.

But a grounded Swinburn is refusing to overlook the threat of Afghanistan’s Wali, who has two knockout successes from a record of three wins, three losses and a draw.

“He will be a threat because he can really bang,” added Swinburn.

“But if he hasn’t trained anywhere near like I have for this then he definitely is in for some trouble.

“The only thing he brings to the fight is punching power. But I have a game plan to guard against that.”
