Bugner confident

The veteran heavyweight Joe Bugner said yesterday that he is confident of taking the WBO inter-continental title from Brighton's Scott Welch when the pair meet in Berlin on 16 March. Bugner, who will be 46 three days before the fight, believes he will knock out Welch. "He's nothing but a big amateur," said Bugner. "He's a walk-up fighter who looks strong and aggressive and could be annoying. But many of the things he does are very amateurish." The fight was arranged for Berlin after the British Boxing Board of Control refused to sanction the bout in Britain, citing Bugner's age and lack of recent activity.
