Boxing: Minto expecting only tweaks from Barry

American heavyweight Brian Minto is expecting only tweaks from Kiwi trainer Kevin Barry in the lead-up to next month's Fight for Life.

Barry has just linked up with Minto for the three weeks leading up to the bout with Shane Cameron.

He says Barry will simply make some minor adjustments.

"He's not really going to change much at all, and I'm not here to have him change me. Strategising on Shane and definitely he'll show me a couple of things.

"I'm just coming off and I'm going to be the same Brian Minto that I've always been. Definitely going to be exciting."

Minto says the respect and contacts Barry has within the New Zealand boxing community will be a massive boost both in the lead-up.
