Re: Adil Anwar vs Peter McDonough
Recent Article, look like Opponents been changed too, scandalous how they are fucking him about..
Despite having won a pair of British title eliminators in his previous two fights, a shot at the prestigious Lonsdale belt has yet to surface for Adil Anwar. The former Prizefighter winner believes this is down to his peers avoiding him.
In an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post, the 25-year old from Leeds said: “Domestically, it seems I am one of the most avoided fighters. I think there’s some boxers out there who are avoiding me.”
The ‘Platinum Kid’ will be featuring on the undercard of David Price-Tony Thompson on February 23 at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. On the same bill, local man Steve Williams will get the chance Anwar was hoping for when he challenges Darren Hamilton, the British light welterweight champion.
In contrast, Anwar will be facing six fight novice Lance Sheehan for the lightly regarded ‘Gold’ version of the British Masters title at 140lbs. Anwar, however, is not letting the situation bring him down.
“I have patiently been waiting for a shot at the British title and have proved that I’m capable of it time after time, yet I’m not getting the shot. Still, I will wait patiently as good things come to those who wait,” stated Anwar.
