DARREN HAMILTON VS. DAVE RYAN II
THIS IS HARD KNOCKS
Friday 7th October @ York Hall
London – 29th September 2011
Darren Hamilton: I’m Fighting For Redemption, Not The Money.
With all the controversy surrounding the recent Victor Ortiz – Floyd Mayweather jnr. fight many London fans may be a little confused to why Ortiz only received the penalty of a single point deduction – and a dubious sucker punch KO for his efforts – whilst back at York Hall in June Darren Hamilton was not just disqualified, but also fined and suspended, for an almost identical action against Dave Ryan.
Like Ortiz, Hamilton accepted the result without argument. In fact the likable Bristol born fighter, now residing in London, has spent a lot of time soul searching and bridge mending, as he is keen to make amends before the pair once again face each other, for The British Master Light Welterweight title, a second time on the Spencer Fearon Hard Knocks Boxing Promotions ‘This is Hard Knocks’ show at York Hall in London on Friday, 7th October.
Hamilton’s determination to make amends, for that red mist moment, became clear when he spoke earlier today, “I’m fighting for redemption, not the money, he’s fighting for the money.
Basically Dave Ryan has asked for more money to fight me again, myself personally I’m completely not interested in the money.
You wouldn’t believe what I actually went through. On the night I didn’t realise the seriousness of what I did.
Afterwards I soon found out. Not only couldn’t I box for twenty eight days, because the British Boxing Board of Control suspended me, but I also had to pay a fine to the BBBofC
I was getting abuse from his fans. My girlfriend, who was at the fight at the time, she was getting abuse as well from his fans. Some of it I heard, it was racial abuse.
Since then I’ve also been getting abuse on the internet from his fans, which I may not like but do understand.
I let Spencer (promoter Spencer Fearon) down, I let the fans down and I let myself down, something I am really sorry for.
It’s put me in a position, like where I was before, where I have to prove myself again like I did against Ideh Ochuku, after being knocked out by Daryl Setterfield, and the time they said I didn’t have a chance against Peter McDonagh, where I was the complete underdog.
I’ve gone right back to that hunger again, this is it again right now. I am completely solemn and completely dedicated to winning this fight. My head is completely on it, it’s all I’ve been thinking about, you know.”
Darren Hamilton versus Dave Ryan, for the British Masters Light Welterweight title, will take place at the Hard Knocks Boxing Promotions ‘This Is Hard Knocks’ event, which will be headlined by Choi Tseveenpürev, at York Hall, Bethnal Green, on Friday 7th October 2011 and broadcast live on Premier Sports (Sky channel 433).
Tickets for ‘This Is Hard Knocks’ – priced £35 (Unreserved) and £60 (Ringside), are available now on-line at www.tkoboxoffice.com or in person at The TRAD TKO Boxing Gym, Gillian House, Stephenson Street, Canning Town, London E16 4SA. For further information please call 07960 850645.
Darren Hamilton seeks redemption on October 7th

During the third round of his fearless, bloody campaign against Robert Helenius in Erfurt, Germany this past August, Sergei “White Wolf” Liakhovich suffered fractures of the bones located high on the bridge of both the right and left sides of his nose. His courageous battle through the remaining brutal rounds garnered him a multitude of new fans who having been sending emails praising Sergei’s heart, determination and skills.
Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, was impressed, “Despite the fact that Sergei was bleeding profusely from two fractures of his nose and swallowing blood from the third round on, Sergei kept himself in the fight and put on one of the gutsiest performances that I have seen in a boxing ring in a very long time. In my opinion, had he not been gasping for breath throughout the fight due to his fractures, Sergei would have won the bout. Even with his injuries, he appeared to be getting the best of Helenius during many of the rounds. Had Sergei not been injured, I have no doubt that we would have seen a very different result.”
After a relatively short recovery period, Sergei is anxious to get back on track to a world title, “I am back in training. I feel great. I’m working on my overall physical and strength conditioning right now, in fact I just came back from hiking. I will be back in the boxing Gym this coming week.”
Sergei spoke of his war with Helenius,”I believe that challenges make you stronger, that you always need to learn from your experiences and make the necessary adjustments. In my case, one of the things I need to do first is to change my corner situation. I have the great support of my Promoter Kathy Duva and my attorney and advisor Tony Cardinale. I also would like to say thank you to everyone, to all my fans for your good comments and great support.”
“Right now my focus is on getting back in the ring as soon as possible. I need to fight regularly and to stay active. I want to fight good fighters and I will do whatever it takes to get back to the top.”
