Lewis Ritson feeling unstoppable

Lewis Ritson says he feels unstoppable and is ready to fight anyone placed in front of him after winning the British title.

The 24-year-old won the British lightweight title in October 2017 by beating Robbie Barrett by way of TKO in the seventh round after putting him on the canvas four times.

He went on to successfully defend his belt against Joe Murray and Scott Cardle, winning both fights via TKO in round one and two respectively.

Ritson was put up against Paul Hyland Jnr for his third defence last Saturday and he once again proved his quality as he stopped his opponent in the first round, knocking him down three times, to secure the title outright.

The north east fighter has blasted his way through the division and insists he is ready for any challenge placed in his path by promoter Eddie Hearn.

Ritson said: “I’ll fight anyone [promoter] Eddie Hearn puts in front of me – I feel unstoppable right now.

“I feel that I am probably done with domestic level but if Eddie wants to put me in with [Commonwealth champion] Tommy Coyle or go for the European, the team will make the right choice.

“I think that atmosphere would take some topping. You need a bit of luck in this game and you have to keep winning, but if I do that, there’s no reason why we can’t get to St. James’ Park in a massive fight.”
