Liverpool boxer Tom Farrell has revealed he has ambitions to claim the British Super Lightweight title in the near future.
Farrell, who has fought the likes of Ohara Davies in his career so far, has set his sights on claiming the domestic title once more.
Having been defeated in his previous attempt to take the belt by Phillip Bowes, the 31-year-old aims to rectify his last attempt this time around, saying:
“At the minute with all this it’s tough, but my aim now is primarily the British title.
“I want to get in a good position where I can fight for it and hopefully get the opportunity where I can challenge for that title.
“It’s a prestigious belt and will open other doors for me.”
Farrell, like many other boxers who do not have the elite status in their sport right now, has now been out of competitive action for many months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fortunately for himself, the option to work at his local gym has helped provide some source of income, meaning he has been able to get by reasonably unscathed – others have not been so lucky.
With the Liverpudlian’s last meaningful bout back in March, Farrell is open to fighting any opponent who comes his way.
“I’ll fight anyone. I want decent fights and I’m aiming at the British title,” he added.
“The holder of that is Akeem Ennis-Brown from Gloucester, but he’s rumoured to be fighting Sam Maxwell, also a Liverpool lad, so I’m looking fighting the winner of that if it becomes available.
“But any meaningful fights really, everyone’s in the same boat now, they haven’t boxed for a while and just want to get back active, so I’m willing to fight anyone.”
Clearly full of renewed vigour, it will be interesting to see how the 31-year-old’s career develops.
