The talented Victor Rabei makes his much-anticipated return to the ring on Oct 7th on the Red Corner promotions ‘Champions elect’ show. The light-welterweight scored a very impressive debut win over the experienced and durable Chris Adaway.
Ahead of his return, Victor took time out of training to talk to KO Boxing News –
KO – Your back out on Oct 7th, any news yet on your opponent?
VR – Back again on another great show. Fighting on the red corner promotions “champions elect” card alongside very good quality boxers. Really looking forward to it. I’ve agreed on an opponent, im just waiting on red corner to release it. But should be another great fight. I can’t say much about him, but he ain’t a push over. It should be a good fight!
KO – have you started into training yet?
VR – I’ve started my camp two weeks ago and its going really well! Covering a lot of technical stuff and bringing up the power too.
KO – You had a good debut win over Chris Adaway, what improvements have you made since then?
VR – I’m very happy with the win, But I wasn’t overly happy with my performance. I know I can do a lot better. I’m working on being a lot busier in my next fight. I brought a huge and loud crowd in my last fight. So I want to perform a lot better for them next time.
KO – Is a Celtic title shot still your ambition within the next year?
VR – Absolutely! Im confident I’ll be capable to challenge for the Celtic title by the summer of next year. Everything is going better than expected. I learn more and more every day.
KO – you previously called out Sean Creagh, are you still hoping to line up a fight with him? or is there anyone else domestically your eyeing up?
VR – As I said before, I want these fights! I got my first professional fight out of the way, and im having my last four rounder on October 7th. After that, I’d love to fight Sean over 6 rounds. Or maybe even go toe to toe for a Celtic title. He trains hard and has a very good fan base, and so do I. It will be a great night for Irish boxing when it happens.
