It will be a battle of ‘The Stag’ vs ‘The Killer’ when Ryan Fraser and Chris Cant take to the ring for the Portside Punch on June 21.
Fraser will be known as ‘the Stag’ because he is a Southlander at heart, while Chris Cant due to his role at Lean Meats will be known as ‘the Killer’.
They will be the the fourth fight on the 10 bout card, with trainer Jonathon Fisher-Hewitt picking it to be one of the fights of the night due to both men’s technical ability and fitness.
Fraser, who had never really thrown a punch before doing the training for the Portside Punch, said expectations have risen now.
“I didn’t realise Jonathan had said that about our fight, so it puts a bit more on the bout now I guess, but it also put some expectations on me and Chris.”
While Fraser is looking forward to stepping into the ring it is likely to be his first and only boxing bout.
“I wanted to go outside my comfort zone and saw what a fantastic cause this was, so I thought, why not get involved and a few hits to the head is worth it.”
While the main focus is boxing and taking part for a good cause Fraser has loved meeting new people and keeping fit.
“It’s been awesome meeting a whole of new people and fighting Chris will be hard because he’s a nice bloke.”
Meanwhile, Chris Cant was confident their fight would live up to expectations.
“It will be a good fight we are both fit people and picked it up quite easy.”
Cant is like Fraser and expects this to be his only fight in the ring.
“I think this will likely be my only fight, I can’t see myself getting in the ring again.”
Like Fraser, Cant did not hesitate when asked if he wanted to participate.
“I said yes straight away I had someone close to me die from cancer and I’m sure we all know someone in some way or another who has been affected by it and it’s a fantastic cause.”
