LLOYD Germain is brimming with confidence as he bids to follow up his successful pro debut this summer with another impressive showing at Swansea’s LC2 tomorrow night.

Part of St Joseph’s trainer Tony Borg’s “brotherhood” of boxers, the 29-year-old faces Devonian Adam Bannister (1-9) in a four-round super-welterweight contest.

The fight comes less than three months after a points victory over journeyman Darren Little in Merthyr Tydfil gave Germain the perfect start to life in the paid ranks.

Germain, from Cardiff, said that was a night he would never forget, and he will be out to make it another memorable occasion in Wales’ second city.

“My debut was a very special occasion,” he said. “Winning was amazing, but having all my family there was special too.

“I had family there who hadn’t all been together in one place for as long as I can remember.

“We planned to get the win but it’s one thing saying it’s what you’re going to do and another actually doing it.

“I put on a great performance, I know Tony was happy, and I’ve got every intention of keeping it going for this one.

“I’m looking for more of the same this time, and it would be nice to show everyone what I’ve learnt and how far I’ve come.

“I’m very confident of going in there and getting another win. I feel confident I can step it up again.

“I have very strong self-belief. I know through all the hard work in the gym and my lifestyle, I can go a long way in boxing.”

Germain is one of four fighters from the St Joes stable appearing on the Sanigar Events show.

“It’s like a brotherhood, we’re all here to better each other and push each other,” said Germain of the Newport gym. “It’s great to be a part of, and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say it’s a very special place.

“Tony has worked wonders with all of us, and we’ll all repay him with great performances and victories.”

A win for Germain would make him the fifth Welshman to beat Bannister after Kristian Touze, Gavin Gwynne, Robbie Vernon and Gerome Warburton.
