Felix Cash remains keen on fighting for the European middleweight title but says he would put that on hold to give either Chris Eubank Jr or Liam Williams “a hiding”.
Cash, who has vacated the British title he won so impressively against Denzel Bentley nine months ago, fights in an international contest as part of the Danny Jacobs-John Ryder card on February 12.
“We’ve got an opponent now,” Cash told Boxing Social’s Andi Purewal recently. “He’s ranked number 3 by the WBA. Announcement should be soon on him. Fight’s basically done so that’s who I’ll be fighting on February 12.”
The WBA’s current number three middleweight contender is the unbeaten Magomed Madiev (15-0-2, 4 KOs). However, the Russian is due to drop down to 154lbs to face David Papot on May 7 for the IBA title in Nantes, France. Boxing Social contacted Cash’s promoter Eddie Hearn for clarification on the matter but received no response.
Should Cash be successful against whoever he faces next month then attention will turn to something bigger. And while the unbeaten 28-year-old hopes it will be against European champion Matteo Signani he would be prepared to forego the opportunity to fight Eubank Jr or Williams who clash on February 5.
When Boxing Social asked Cash if he would like to challenge the winner, he said: “A 100%. I’ll be keeping a close eye on them two. If I win this fight the winner of their fight would be on the cards. I’d put the European aside to give one of them a hiding.”
