Andrey Sirotkin plans on gaining revenge for his previous trip to England – as he prepares to face Danny Dignum for the WBO European middleweight title on Saturday’s massive #MTKFightNight.
Sirotkin (19-1, 7 KOs) challenges Dignum (13-0, 7 KOs) for his title at the University of Bolton Stadium this weekend, live on IFL TV.
The last time Sirotkin fought in England, he came up short against former world title challenger John Ryder, but the Russian has vowed that it will be a different story against Dignum.
Sirotkin said:“I am very excited and glad this fight is here. Everything has gone according to plan in training and I have listened to everything my coaches have had to say.
“I don’t know much about Danny Dignum. I watched a couple of my fights, but I will learn in battle. I am coming to get the victory in England.
“He has a high WBO ranking and that is why I have taken this fight. I want to climb the rankings and a win here helps me get closer to a title fight.
“I see this as a chance to get redemption from the last fight I had in England. I need England to remember me for a victory and I will get it on Saturday.”
