Kingston’s Danny Parsons is confident of claiming his first boxing title at Epsom Downs Racecourse tonight.

The former Battersea ABC amateur  takes on Dagenham’s Craig Hardy for the vacant Queensbury Boxing League Southern Area title after impressing promoters earlier in the year during a sparring session.

And after being ringside back in June to see Hardy in action, Parsons has no fear of failure.

“I’ve seen what he brings to the table, and there is no doubt in my mind that it will be me lifting that belt,” said the 18-year-old, left.

“Hardy looks like a good stand-up boxer who throws lots of straight shots and can  take a punch, but he’s not a power puncher. I’m confident I can take him out inside the distance.”

Parsons’ title showdown will be screened on satellite  channel British Eurosport in October and is the biggest fight of his boxing career.
