Australian light flyweight sensation Alex Winwood is looking to push through the professional gears in rapid fashion, as he challenges former world champion Tibo Monabesa for the WBC International light flyweight title on March 3.
Winwood has been punch perfect as a professional and is being moved at good pace by Australian boxing aficionado Tony Tolj, who aims to move his all action charge into the world ratings this coming March.
Winwood discussed his career development, “I’m delighted to be moving fast with my career as I feel I have the ability to do that. I’ve served my apprentice in the amateurs, I’ve boxed elite fighters, now it’s my time to shine. I want to beat Jeff Fenech’s legendary record as Australia’s fastest world champion.
“I’m grateful to my manager Tony Tolj who has been moving me at the right pace and I feel this fight is the right step up for me at this stage. I want to establish myself on the world scene and I think this is the right fight in front of my own people in Perth. This is what being a pro is really about for me.
“I’ve been training alongside Andrew and Jason Moloney, so realistically I’m not getting any better development anywhere even if I tried. I’m with the best in the business, and I have a pathway similar to theirs, so I’m learning first hand on how to navigate the boxing world from a performance perspective.”
Winwood is guided by Tony Tolj, who also oversees the Moloney brothers, and Tolj gave his take on Winwood’s fast tracked development.
