Daryl Setterfield’s Ready For Another Knockout Performance on 19th June
Following on from his stunning knockout victory over Light Welterweight prospect Darren Hamilton, Redhill, Surrey’s Daryl Setterfield is back in action on the 19th June at the Steve Goodwin promoted “Summer Fight Night Explosion” at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.
Setterfield, who will be facing veteran Matt Scriven on the 19th June, is looking to build on his against the odds win over the highly rated Hamilton back in March this year. Coming into that fight Setterfield was undoubtedly the underdog as Hamilton had been rightly touted as a future star of the division, with Championship potential. However, no one seemed to take into account is that Setterfield, anything but an easy opponent at the best of times, always comes to win.
Hamilton, in true contender style, was intent on imposing himself with heavy handed attacks. Setterfield, wasn’t content to just roll over and take it, responded with vicious salvos of his own. The climax to the exciting battle was nothing short of spectacular. Setterfield let rip with the most vicious overhand right to the head, which literally stopped the previously unbeaten fighter in his tracks, followed up with a lightning fast combination that sent Hamilton crashing to the canvas so hard the paramedics were immediately called for.
Following a training session, under the watchful eyes of world class coaches Johnny Eames and Derek Grainger at the Ultrachem TKO Gym in Canning Town, East London, a relaxed Setterfield spoke about the victory over Hamilton, “Darren had gone five unbeaten. He’s a very good fighter. It was hard going as he has an awkward defence. We battled hard, I landed some good shots, as did he.
His defence was tight but as the fight went on I managed to get some good shots to his body. I think that’s why he bought his defence lower in the fourth. So when he had his left hand down lower I put a good right over the top, which shook him, and finished him off with a three punch combination. He went down hard and was out cold.
He was out, some people said the ref stepped in too late, but it was so quick he couldn’t have got in and stopped it. They had to give him oxygen but I’m pleased to say he’s OK.
I wouldn’t say it was the best fight I’ve had, it was quite scrappy at times, but it was the best finish. It was tidy right hand over the top.”
Setterfield then went on to talk about his upcoming June 19th fight, “It should be a good fight, Matt Sciven’s got lots of experience and he always comes to fight. Which are the type of fighters I like to get in with.
I’m looking to build my career now. I’ve had eight fights now and I’m still learning. It seems that I get more than my fair share of unbeaten prospects, other than my first two fights and Cassius Conner who was debuting, they’ve all been unbeaten.
I learned a lot about my power against Darren and I’ve been working on this and intend to bring it all to the fight on the 19th. I’m not saying I’m going to knock Matt out but if the chance comes I will take it.”
Daryl Setterfield versus Matt Scriven will be on the Steve Goodwin promoted “Summer Fight Night Explosion” at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.
The stacked TWELVE fight card for “Summer Fight Night Explosion” includes the return of, International Masters Champion, Yassine El Maachi against Dee Mitchell.
