WARNING - GRAPHIC IMAGES: Leigh Park boxer’s glory after gruesome loss of fingertip

Have your say

FLOYD MOORE has backed his knockout power to make its mark in Prizefighter.

The Fareham lightweight is aiming for glory in the boxing tournament televised on Sky Sports on Saturday.

Moore will be given the chance to get his boxing career back on track following a stoppage defeat to Dean Mills in September.

The 24-year-old will go up against a high-quality field, including the likes of former Prizefighter winner and British champion Gary Buckland.

Former European champion Stephen Foster is also among those vying for the £32,000 winner’s cheque.

There is also £10,000 handed out to the first boxer to stop his opponent.

With Moore seeing seven of his 10 professional wins coming early he has his eyes on both prizes.

He said: ‘I think I am the biggest puncher in the tournament.

‘If I KO someone I’ll pick up £10,000.

‘So if I sense a stoppage, I won’t be holding back.’

Moore’s defeat to Mills was preceded by a disputed loss to Adam Dingsdale after winning the Southern Area title last year in London.

The 10-5 man knows the event has the status to propel him up the domestic rankings.

Moore said: ‘Saturday is the perfect platform to get my career back on track. I believe I can do the business.

‘I can show the whole of Britain what I can do, it’s always an exciting night and it would be nice to show everyone what I am capable of.

‘The fight with Adam (Dingsdale) was a real close one, people were expecting me to get blasted out of there and completely outclassed but a lot of people had me winning the fight.

‘The one with Dean (Mills), I trained so hard but just got caught on the temple.

‘It scrambled my senses and I couldn’t recover,

‘For me it’s all about how you respond to defeats.’
