Steve Robinson is “a mountain of a male” who can light-weight up the domestic heavyweight scene in opposition to Dave Allen or Fabio Wardley, claims promoter Ben Shalom.
Robinson scored a initial-round knockout in his home city of Newcastle this thirty day period immediately after going for walks to the ring to ‘The Lion King’ audio.
BOXXER promoter Shalom advised Sky Athletics soon after Robinson’s fourth experienced fight: “We have to be reasonable with him – he is 31 but had never been picked up in advance of.
“He can unquestionably bang and was in the gymnasium the future day [after his KO win]. He lives and breathes the sport.
“He is a mountain of a gentleman, he is a serious character and he has enormous guidance in Newcastle.
“We will develop him slowly and gradually. That was only his fourth combat but there are big, massive domestic fights out there for him.
“He confirmed his electrical power. I think he’s miles over the likes of Alen Babic.
“There are significant fights perhaps with Dave Allen or Fabio Wardley.”
Babic has stopped all of his 8 opponents so considerably and Wardley is unbeaten in 12, when Allen just lately finished his retirement by returning to the ring.
Robinson has instructed Sky Sports: “I would surely enjoy to be combating for a title in 4 or 5 fights’ time.
“I need to make sure I am ready for the phase-up in rounds, simply because after you’ve stepped up, there is no coming back again down.
“You have obtained to be frequently mounting. You’re likely to get people today contacting you out and all kinds.
“As a staff, we are going to do it educated and we’ll make certain that the time is suitable and not drive anything, but in 4 fights’ time, I am safely ready to be fighting for a title.”
