CHARD'S Paul Roberts is fighting for another title this Friday (April 19) in Glasgow.

The boxer is taking on Chris Liddell for the Commonwealth Silver Light-Flyweight championship belt at the Doubletree by Hilton in Glasgow, Scotland.

Roberts secured the Southern Area Super Flyweight title in November last year after an impressive stoppage win.

This fight will be a tougher challenge again, as Roberts is dropping down a weight division to take it, but he remains confident.

He said: "I am confident going into this one, training has been going well for me but it is destined to be a war just when you look at mine and Chris' boxing style.

"But in training camp everything has been going to plan and I have been training and sparring with Jay Harris who has held the European and Commonwealth flyweight titles.

"So that has been really beneficial and I think it will help me going into the fight."

His opponent, Liddell is also dropping down to this weight after he fought and lost the title in the weight class above last time out.

So both boxers will be coming into the bout lighter and quicker, but both will still be very powerful.

Roberts is hoping to bring the belt back to Somerset though.

"I am heading up to Glasgow on Wednesday and there is also a team of 20 people heading up to support me personally for the fight," he said.

"My main goal is of course to bring the belt back home to Somerset with me."

Roberts is no stranger to pressure and fighting away from home as his Southern Area Super Flyweight title bout in November was in London.

He scored an amazing seventh round stoppage over London's Martin Hillman to win the belt at The York Hall, Bethnal Green.

That was Roberts' second Southern Area title, across two different weight classes, which further highlighting just how good he really is.

And this fight on Friday night will be another big challenge for Paul, but he is determined to do well.

He said: "Like I said, training has been going well, I have a game plan for the fight and I will execute. My goal though of course is to win."

He also wanted to thank his main sponsor CD Stuckey Developments and also to his supporters in and around Somerset.
