  • Description

    THE GHANAIAN FEATHERWEIGHT BOXER, FLOYD ROBERTSON, HAS BEEN ROUNDING OFF HIS TRAINING PROGRAMME IN READINESS FOR HIS TILE FIGHT AGAINST VICENTE SALDIVAR IN MEXICO CITY ON SATURDAY (FEBRUARY 12).

    IT WILL BE THE THIRD TIME SALDIVAR HAS DEFENDED HIS WORLD FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE. HE HAS ALREADY BEATEN TWO OTHER STRONG CHALLENGES FROM RAUL ROJAS AND THE YOUNG ENGLISH BOXER, HOWARD WINSTONE.

    AS WELL AS HIS NORMAL DAILY TRAINING SESSIONS AT THE AVENIDA GYMNASIUM, ROBERTSON IS ALSO REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN DOING EXTRA TRAINING IN A SPECIAL ROOM AT THE GHANAIAN EMBASSY IN MEXICO CITY.

    THIS WEEK HE WAS STILL TWO POUNDS OVERWEIGHT, BUT HIS MANAGER, MR SAM DOUGHERTY, IS CONFIDENT THE GHANAIAN CHALLENGER WILL BE ABLE TO LOSE SUFFICIENT BEFORE THE WEIGH-IN.

    THE FIGHT HAS ALREADY BEEN DELAYED ONE WEEK BECAUSE ROBERTSON WAS TOO HEAVY AT A PREVIOUS WEIGH-IN.
