Milch preparing for toughest challenge yet


Tony Milch is relishing the prospect of his first six-round fight ahead of his outing of the year.

Milch, 33, ended 2014 in style, beating Zoltan Turai of Hungary on points for his sixth professional win.

The light-middleweight will fight an unnamed opponent on a 10-bout bill at the the Camden Centre in Kings Cross on March 7 – his first Saturday night fight.

Milch said: "Having won six four-round fights, I feel ready to make the step up. I’m expecting to come up against a better calibre of opponent.

"Once you’ve completed a six-round fight you can fight for a title. I believe this will be my tough test to date."

Milch, who is also a personal trainer, describes himself as “a mover” in the ring. He has stepped up his regime to six days a week ahead of his latest fight, including “lots more roadwork”.

He hopes to receive strong backing from the community in a sport with a rich tradition. “I have an aunt and cousins who live on a kibbutz in Israel and I visited every boxing club in the country three years ago.

Milch, who is looking for a sponsor, returned to the sport aged 30 following a sabbatical after a nine-year amateur career. He said: “I rediscovered my hunger for the sport and, as the most prominent British Jewish fighter on the scene, I’m looking to attract some new fans.

"If all goes to plan, I’m aiming for a crack at the British Masters or Southern Area title."
