Milch ready for 'Area title" fight after 9th win


TONY MILCH is targeting an Area Title fight next year after maintaining his unbeaten start to his professional career.

Milch sealed his ninth successive victory thanks to a 58-56 points win over veteran Kevin McCauley at the Camden Centre.

The Bushey bruiser, 34, was in complete control against McAuley, in his 128th fight, in Kings Cross.

Light-middleweight Milch is eyeing bigger things in 2016 and said: “It was a good learning fight against an experienced opponent who knows what he is doing.

"I wanted a KO and to put on a show. But I didn’t want to get dragged into a scrap with a brawler and I used the jab to keep him at an arm’s length.

"I felt relaxed and comfortable throughout. It’s about getting rounds in the bank. But I want an Area title fight now. I feel ready to step up and I’m looking for 10-round fight.

"This is the fittest and strongest I have felt. It’s been two-and-a-half year since I turned pro and I’m ready to take the step up now.”

Milch hopes his next fight will be swelled by numbers. With the fight taking place on a Friday night, his support was down but Milch said: “I told my promoter Micky Helliott that I would have a lot more fans if it wasn’t on a Friday night.

"But next year my fights will be on a Saturday evening. That’s what I want. I’m hoping to get back into the ring either in February or March."
