Amar ready to rumble with Glover

Adnam Amar claims he’ll be out to eclipse the mouth-watering top of the bill clash between Wayne Elcock and Matthew Macklin in Birmingham on March 14th. The two local middleweights go head to head in a hugely anticipated British title fight that is being billed as “The Battle of Brum” but Amar has set his sights on stealing the show. Amar defends his English Welterweight title against Tom Glover on the Hennessy Sports event which will be screened live on ITV4. Having been out of the ring since last May Amar is determined to bounce back with a bang. “It’s been frustrating time for me, watching from the sidelines,” revealed the 26-year-old. “I‘ve had a number of fights fall through for various reasons so I’m itching to get back in there now and prove I belong up there with the best in Britain. “Fighting on ITV4 will give me a big stage to showcase my skills and anytime I fight in front of the TV cameras I have an extra edge and that will show in my performance. I like to entertain and that’s what I plan on doing by winning in style against Glover.” The Nottingham native has won all but one of his 23 pro fights and he says that facing Southern Area champion Glover holds no fears for him. “He’s a tough guy and I take my hat off to him for stepping up to the plate and fighting me because I believe I’ve been avoided because of my style and ability. He’s never been stopped so it’s not going to be easy but I believe I’ll be too strong, too clever and too accurate. If he walks onto something he’ll get taken out inside 5 rounds.” Amar is confident that he can make a real statement by despatching Glover in style and pressing his claims for the British and Commonwealth titles. “In my last fight I beat Mark Lloyd convincingly to win the English title and now he’s getting a chance at Kell Brook’s British title. I wasn’t even at 50% of my best when I fought Lloyd and I still beat him easily so I think that says a lot about my ability.” With both Amar and Brook based at the famous Ingle gym in Sheffield Amar says a clash between the two is unlikely anytime soon but it’s not something he’s ruling out completely. “I spar with Kell regularly and they are always very good, even spars. I give him plenty of problems, more than he needs but at the end of the day he’s a good fighter and no disrespect to the British title but we’re both looking at bigger things. “I don’t think a fight between us would make sense unless there was big money and titles at stake but if it was down to me I’d fight anybody because I really want to push on with my career.” Also appearing on “The Battle of Brum” undercard at the Aston Arena, Birmingham on the 14th of March is heavyweight sensation, Tyson Fury alongside Eddie O’Rourke, Chris Male, Quinton Hillocks and Callum Archer.
