After a straight first five wins in his professional career, Sanquhar’s Rhys Pagan feels the time is right for him to move to six rounds, with his next penciled bout on June 28th at Cleland Miners Club.
“I have had my first fights at the four round distance, now I am glad to be moving up to six. I am in no rush as I am still only 19. At this stage I am savoring every minute of every round to make sure I get the best in ring education.
The undefeated Welterweight is currently scheduled to fight over the six round distance for the first time, and Pagan takes the extra training in his stride “The training means more pad work, more sparring and more road work. This keeps me ticking over and ready to push my opponent hard to pick up the win.
He adds “I will train for the rounds and look forward to getting back to the ring on June 28th. It will have been just over three months since my last fight so it will be good to get the fight on. Its a competitive division and we will use this fight to build up a title shot at the end of the year or next year, however I am not in any rush.
He adds “We should be getting confirmation of our next opponent soon, but I know my manager Paul is looking at a few different options.
