‘Tank’ Ryan Aston working on his tactics
Ryan Aston is adamant he has become a new and improved fighter since being stopped in two title fights last year, writes James Eley.
The 26-year-old will appear on BCB Promotions’ Sunday Best show at the Copthorne Hotel, Dudley, on July 23 and Tank told BCB Promotions he has redeveloped himself as he continues to search for the elusive Midlands Area title.
He said: “This is a new me now. I have changed the way I go about things. It is a case of staying relaxed and keeping my eye on the target. I want to keep disciplined and stick to the game plan. I am focusing more on my defence now and keeping that all nice and compact. I want to throw punches that leave me with minimum risk and have maximum effect when they land. That is boxing in a nutshell and I want to focus my game plan on that.
“I don’t mind when I get another title fight. I have been there before and I know what it is all about and this is just about getting back to the level I was before. I have had some difficult times in my last title fights and I have had my reasons for the losses but that is boxing, it is a great sport but a cruel business. It is what it is and hopefully now I am a different fighter I can get the victory if I do get another chance at a belt.
“I just want to fight and stick to the process that we have been working on. I have been working on this process for around three months now and I can feel it paying off. I can see little improvements. I am focused on the plan and this process will not stop until I get to where I need to.”
