Haringey light-heavyweight James Windsor has warned old rival Jason Chay that he won’t be facing the same fighter in the ring when the pair lock horns at Alexandra Palace.

Windsor, 28, will meet Margate’s Chay on Saturday, March 15 when the pair go toe to toe in pursuit of the vacant Queensbury Boxing League’s vacant belt.

After handing Chay his only defeat in the competition back in 2012 on his debut, Windsor believes the only difference in their impending sequel will be that he will get the job done in far more convincing fashion.

Since suffering that solitary defeat at the hands of Windsor, Chay has gone on to record several impressive victories including a first round stoppage victory over previous champion Ben Middleton.

But a confident Windsor believes his rival’s recent form will count for little on the night and has lined up a few surprises that will send his Margate rival home empty handed at the end of the big night.

He said: “If Chay thinks I’ve been sitting around doing nothing since our first fight then he’s in for a big shock as I’m a completely different fighter now and far more dangerous.

“In the first fight I really struggled to make the weight and I was completely drained, and after the first minute of the action my arms felt like lead and I felt really flat.”

Windsor added: “Since the first fight I’ve been in the gym working on so many things and really focusing on my technique, power and doing the weight correctly, and although Jason is coming into this fight very confident after his last two performances I know the outcome of the fight will be the same as last time with my hand being raised holding that belt.”

Windsor’s title clash with Chay will feature on the undercard of a busy night of action at Alexandra Palace.
