FORMER Rotunda ABC boxer Brian Phillips is looking to get into the Central Area title picture now that boxing is getting back to normality.
He won his first four fights, but then ran into top prospect Nick Ball who snapped his unbeaten record.
Phillips has shown that defeat doesn’t mean the end and bounced back superbly with five wins on the spin.
After an 18 month lay-off, Phillips was due to box at Liverpool Olympia in September 2021, but an issue with British Boxing Board of Control doctors forced a late postponement of the card.
Instead he picked up a job in the away corner two days later than the original date and played his part in a thriller losing 96-95 to Jimmy First.
A rematch with First is possible in 2022, but Brian has to keep busy after that narrow loss on the road.
He bounced back on November 2021 winning 40-36 against reliable Lithuanian Simas Volosinas.
Phillips spent time in a California training camp with Issac Lowe and picked up tips from Tyson Fury who was preparing for a Deontay Wilder fight.
