IBO welterweight champion Lovemore Ndou consulted highly regarded Fight Doctor Lou Lewis in Sydney today who after examining the eye cut that required five stitches to close gave Ndou the all clear to begin sparring sessions in two weeks and he can now go ahead with IBO title defense against Mathew Hatton in Staffordshire, England on November 13th.
Ndou stated, “After consulting with Doctor Lou Lewis, a well-respected boxing doctor, I have been cleared to go ahead with my fight as originally scheduled. That is, on November 13th. According to Dr Lewis I should be able to resume sparring in the next two weeks. I’m so excited and over the moon about it. The thought of pulling out of the fight after four months of serious training would have been devastating to me. So, England here I come. Be prepared for another Englishman to bite the dust. Anyway, truth is I still would beat Matthew Hatton with one leg, one arm and one eye. I would rather fight his brother, Ricky, than fight him but if that’s what it takes to get a fight with Ricky I will do just that. In fact I intend to beat him up so bad Ricky will be ashamed he is related to him. The best way to describe my fight against Matthew Hatton is like a donkey racing against a horse. Me being the horse, of course.”
