Ritson vs Patera: All you need to know about Lewis Ritson's bid for European glory

Lewis Ritson will face Francesco Patera for the Vacant EBU European Lightweight title at Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on October 13, live on Sky Sports.

‘The Sandman’ won the British Lightweight title outright by defeating the previously unbeaten challenger Paul Hyland Jr at the Metro Radio Arena in June and is predicting another destructive performance against Patera in October.


Patera is no stranger to fighting on these shores, having lost a close decision to Birkenhead hardman Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd for the WBC International title in 2016. 

He went on to beat Finland’s Edis Tatli to win the European title in May 2017 before losing out in a rematch later that year.

Ritson gets his shot at European honors after Tatli decided to vacate his belt.

“I’ve dealt with all the top operators at domestic level and now it’s time to announce myself on the European stage,” said Ritson. “I’m feeling unstoppable right now and I’m ready to take on anyone that gets put in front of me. 

The Metro Radio Arena is my fortress and nobody is beating me in my backyard. The noise my fans make inside the arena is incredible, it’s like there’s two of me in the ring!

“Patera has held the European belt so we know that he poses a real threat and I’ll have to be at my best to get past him. I’ve been told there’s not much between Patera and Tatli in terms of ability and style. Patera looks big at the weight and is a busy fighter, I’m expecting an exciting fight.

Ritson vs. Patera tops a huge night of action in Newcastle as rising Light-Heavyweight star Joshua Buatsi makes the first defense of his WBA International belt that he won at The O2 in July.


 Liverpool’s Robbie Davies Jnr faces Sunderland’s Glenn Foot for the British and Commonwealth Super-Lightweight titles, Heavyweight fan favorite Dave Allen returns after his ‘life-changing’ win over Nick Webb and Cruiserweights Simon Vallily and Craig Glover meet over ten rounds.

It's been a monumental year for one of Britain's most ruthless punchers and now, back in front of his fervent North East faithful, Ritson moves on to the next stage. 

Having left a destructive trail in his wake at domestic level, the aptly named 'Geordie Golovkin' takes on Belgium's Patera with an immediate opportunity to wrap up European honors, live on Sky Sports, and further enhance his growing reputation.

After a stagnant period, boxing in the North East has exploded back to life, mainly thanks to 'The Sandman', and more than 9,000 fans are expected to roar Ritson on at a frenzied Metro Radio Arena this weekend. 

The future looks unquestionably bright for the knockout artist and Ritson harbors hope of one day challenging for a world title at St James' Park, with Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer perhaps even walking him out.

Those lofty ambitions could all come quickly crashing down in an instant however and Patera, a former European champion who has never been stopped, is intent on spoiling the party.
