Nick ‘Wild’ Webb (4-0), unbeaten heavyweight prospect from Chertsey, faces Zoltan Csala (9-5) at The SSE Arena, Wembley this Saturday, live on Channel 5.
The Hennessy Sports promoted show featuring the headlining fight between British middleweight champion Nicky Blackwell and challenger Chris Eubank Jr. will be televised live on terrestrial TV on Saturday and has been dubbed by promoter Mick Hennessy as:
“The best fight in world boxing.”
Webb, 28-years-old, has four first round KO’s on his perfect record, managed by former World heavyweight title contender – Scott Welch.
Csala, 38-years-old, is a former Hungarian heavyweight champion, also winning the WBF International heavyweight title at the same time back in December 2014.
The Hungarian known as ‘Furioso’ has a tattoo circling his right eye, giving him a menacing look. Webb said:
“Zoltan Csala is definitely a step up, he’s got a tattoo on his face and he looks tough. He’s had nine wins with seven KO’s so he can hit.”
Csala’s previous visit to the UK was in May last year to challenge then unbeaten Gary Cornish for the IBO Inter-Continental heavyweight title, which provided the ‘Highlander’ with his last fight before losing his perfect record to Anthony Joshua.
Webb is more than prepared for the meeting with the Hungarian national titlist after expert sparring during his latest training camp, he explained:
“I’ve been sparring Richard Towers and a guy call Matteo Modugno, a four-time Italian heavyweight champion who’s 18-0, and Towers is 15-1, at their gyms in Redhill. I was supposed to fight on the 18th but the show got cancelled, so to be fighting a week later is quite lucky for me so I’m raring to go.”
Webb is firmly focused on this weekend’s fight but has a bigger date to look forward to in just eight week’s time. The 28 year old confirmed:
“Out this weekend, then Haye Day on May 21st. Then out again in June in Brighton.”
The heavyweight prospect, a former ABA Novice champion and Elite finalist, plans to light up the Greenwich peninsula on his sixth pro bout on the huge O2 Arena event centred around the former World heavyweight champion – David Haye. The heavy hitter enthused:
“I’m all about big shows. I’m supposed to be on the big stage. I’ve got this weekend’s fight on TV, then the O2 show to look forward to; I just need to make it the ‘Nick Webb show.”
