Cruiserweight Ryan Charles has paid tribute to his manager and team as he prepares for a return to the ring on 30th June.

The Londoner had an exemplary amateur career competing at the Commonwealth Games and the World Amateur Championship before turning pro with Mark ‘Mo’ Prior’s British Warriors.

The 31-year-old impressed on his debut at York Hall, showing his class over four rounds again the the Hungarian, Ferenc Zsalek.

He fights on a stacked card at York Hall which includes the hugely talented Chris Kongo and Jez Smith alongside many more.

And Charles, who expects to win a British title at the minimum, is pleased with how his career is progressing so far.

“When everyone talks about turning over you know how important it is to make sure you have a manager that looks after you,” he said.

“I did my research and met a couple but I had heard such good things about Mo that as soon as the meeting was over I wanted to sign.

“British Warriors are growing really well and I’ve been really pleased with everything so far. We got the ball rolling straight away, Mo’s a really good man.

“I have even noticed that there’s been a lot more exposure too, I have had people message my Twitter and Instagram asking about fights so hopefully we can keep the hype going after my next fight and keep attracting fans.

With interest now turning to his next fight, Charles couldn’t be training at a better place – Brixton’s famous Miguels.

He continued: “I’ve been going over a lot of stuff with my coach down at Miguels, sitting on the shorts a lot more for power rather than point scoring.

“You go over the shorts again and again but you feel better for it. When you look at the sparring I’ve been getting too, everything is going great.

“I’ve done rounds with Richard Riakphore whos a big talent, I should be doing rounds with Isaac Chamberlain and then some top amateur lads too.

It’s going to be a great night so get at me for tickets!”

Ryan Charles currently holds a professional boxing record of 1-0.
