Boxing: Minto buzzing to work alongside top Kiwi trainer

Related

American heavyweight boxer Brian Minto is buzzing to work alongside a top Kiwi trainer for the next three weeks.

Kevin Barry has just linked up with Minto, ahead of next month's IBO heavyweight title fight against Shane Cameron next month.

Minto says the high regard Barry's held in by the local boxing community is massive.

"He got my respect and he's very knowledgeable, from just our phone conversations I was like 'yeah lets do it' and my agent said 'you'll love him, he's a good guy, he's like a tour guide here so he knows his way around New Zealand' so I think I'm in good hands."

Minto says Barry also brings huge advantage and knowledge of the way Shane Cameron fights.
