(AUG 17) When Light Middleweight
contender ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese last faced Lee Noble, on the Ricky Hatton
promoted show at the Goresbrook Leisure Centre in Dagenham, Essex back
on the 26th March, things didn’t go quite the way that McAleese or his
legion of fans expected, with the referee, Richie Davies, scoring the
contest a 58-58 points draw.
Pat McAleese with co-trainer Derek Grainger
Following the surprise result McAleese
told Boxing Scene’s Dean Parr, "A lot of people in the crowd gave me
five out of the six rounds, and I thought I won four out of the six, and
drew the last, if not winning it." then adding, “I'll hopefully get a
rematch and set the record straight.”
McAleese has got his wish and at the same time the opportunity to secure
his first championship belt, as the rematch, which will be for the
British Masters Light Middleweight Title, co-headlines the Steve Goodwin
promoted ‘It’s Personal’ event at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, London
on Saturday the 11th September 2010.
Following a heavy sparring session under
the watchful eyes of his manager/trainer Johnny Eames and co-trainer
Derek Grainger, at the Ultrachem TKO Gym in Canning Town, McAleese spoke
of the upcoming showdown, “You better believe it’s personal. I have no
doubt in my mind that I am going to win. I’ve trained better, I’ve slept
better, eating better and I’ve rested.
The last fight came at the end of a busy season. I only fought thirteen
days before the last fight and was feeling a bit tired on the night. On
the 11th September it’s going to be a very different Pat McAleese in the
ring so he’s in for a shock.
It was frustrating, I thought I won. It wasn’t me in the ring really, it
was a jaded me, but I feel I still won. This time I’m gonna be in tiptop
shape. I’m going to be doing a proper training camp in London for two
weeks just before the fight so I’ll be ready for it.
The training and sparring I’m getting here, at the Ultrachem TKO Gym, is
first class. Johnny (Eames) and Derek (Grainger) have been really
putting me through the paces. It’s good, really good. They’ve also lined
me up some top class sparring with Eddie (Corcoran), Nathan (Weise) and
Erick’s also on the September show. He’s sharp, we’ve been doing some
real good sparring, doing plenty of rounds in the gym. It’s coming
together nicely as Erick’s got a similar style to Lee (Noble), he’s got
a fast jab and he’s awkward to hit. The main difference is that Erick
goes low, and lets off more shots while Lee goes high and then covers
up. It’s slightly different, but it’s still great sparring for me.
I want to win this so badly, it’s unreal, I’m giving it hundred and ten
percent in training and I know that on the night I’ll win it in the
‘Phat’ Pat McAleese versus Lee Noble, for the British Masters Light
Middleweight Title with be co-headline with Ryan Barratt and Mark ‘The
Flash’ Alexander, for the vacant International Masters Lightweight
