VIDEO: Swindon Fight Club hots up at press conference

Swindon Advertiser: Ranford v Mills is the talk of the town Ranford v Mills is the talk of the town

JASON Ranford and Daniel Wells could not hide their contempt for each other at a press conference ahead of their Brunel Rooms grudge match at Swindon Fight Club.

Fantasy Gentleman’s Club was packed with fighters and supporters last night as opponents due to fight at Swindon Fight Club Seven faced off in front of the cameras.

A series of disputes between the pair, mainly involving Wells’ friend and former Brunel Rooms manager Nathan Hatter, has led to this white collar fight on Saturday, March 1 at the MECA.

Wells and Ranford both spent the press conference talking each other down and talking up their own preparations, with training schedules gaining momentum in each camp.

“I have been going down the gym every day, sometimes twice a day,” said Wells. “I have been doing work with both Paul Rogers and Nick Tuckett, who both have a lot of experience working with fighters.

“I’m eating well, taking the missus to work in the mornings, then going down to Scrappers Gym to work on my boxing.

“I am really looking forward to it now. I am more confident than before.

“I’m looking forward to giving him a slap, which is what the whole of Swindon wants.

“It should go my way. I’m training harder than him. I can see him coming out and flying out in the first round.

“I will wait for him to tire himself out, pick him off and put him down.”

Ranford wouldn’t go as far as to reveal where he is training, but reacted more than confidently to Wells’ taunts.

“I am training a lot and it’s hard, but I have definitely made an improvement,” said the former Brunel Rooms director.

“I have been doing cardio at my normal gym and then some more specific boxing stuff with a few guys who would rather I didn’t mention them.

“I am feeling very confident though, over-confident if anything. I can’t wait to do it – I just don’t like him.

“I’m not worried about getting hurt, but I am nervous about losing. I don’t want to lose in front of all those people. I don’t think I will lose, but it’s nervy.

“There are plenty of people who want to see me get hurt and lose, but there are lots of people who like me and back me.

“They are the type of people who don’t sit around at home all day on their computers typing up stuff about me. They have jobs.

“I will be silencing all of those who talk me down on the night.”

I have a job which lets me sit on the Swindon Adver' site and talk **** about 'Mr Brunel' - and I'm not talking Isambard.

Looking forward to seeing Wells do Swindon proud.

This Idiot is a rare breed who is so delusional it hilarious, A constant train wreck that makes you laugh and cringe at the same time.

Here we have a wannabe Essex boy whos only aspiration is to be the next Bobby-Cole Norris from TOWIE and a Kray twin rolled into one and also avoid doing an honest days work,crime pays right.

A leech of a boy with a nasty streak that will get him in a lot of trouble one day. That day may be coming sooner than he thinks.

.........yes, it's funny that the adver will give so much space to two morons who probably don't possess a single brain cell between them and then some lazy, pre-pubescent editor has the front to call it ''news''!
.....''a fight that's talk of the town'', oh really!
The adver used to report on local community storys etc, like yours, but that was in the days when reporters (hacks) were educated and used to interact with the community, nowadays, I am afraid, the criteria for being a reporter for the adver is the ability to use social media sites and have little or no personality to be able to communicate with a person face to face.
Personally, i don't give a d@mn about these two morons, it's such a shame that the adver seems to even want to draw attention to them having anything to do with Swindon, I for one wish that they would both crawl back under their respective stones and stay there for evermore.
With regard to your fundraising, I will offer my congratualations and probably congratulations on behalf of the vast majority of Swindonians on your efforts.
As for the advertiser, well it's about time they looked at their priorities, and invested in some proper educated reporters and an editor who is actually interested in Swindon and its community.

There is definitely a place for community news and its sad if they are not living up to their moral duties; however let's face it there is NEVER much newsworthy stuff going on in this town and I bet there are a fair few people out there that find the Brunel Soap Opera as highly amusing - and hence in this day and age, newsworthy! A lot of people in the town grew up in the age of the Brunel and hence were interested in its revival (purely because of the name). Only in Swindon could someone make such a hash of it and I guess the conclusion to the story is seeing Ranford get thwacked in the ring - maybe they are hoping that this will be a tougher sentence that the laughable term imposed by the courts?

Really????

Well I can only assume from this that none of them were employed by Mr Ranford.

Nothing like a bloke who wants to silence those who talk down on him for being a violent thug by having a boxing match.

I think someone has taken a few whacks to the old melon already.

Wish I had the time to go down the gym twice a day! Sadly I don't have time cause I have a job! Maybe Wells should take a leaf out of his 'missus' book, and get a proper job, instead of wasting time partaking in childish school playground style fighting!

What do you expect! Its the Swindon Adver reporting! I've not once read a story that didn't contain at least one factual error or spelling mistake!

They once reported on a 'stabbing' in the housing estate where I used to live, they got the day, the time, and the street name wrong and made it sound like someone had been gutted with a bowie knife, when actually someone was just slashed with a stanly knife!

The reporters rarely check their facts love sensationalist stories, and seem completely incompetent!

Wow, Ranford looks sooooo scary with his spotty chicken neck! I'm sure that that will wobble quite a bit after the first sucker punch!

I like the quote:

“They are the type of people who don’t sit around at home all day on their computers typing up stuff about me. They have jobs.

... so I would guess that he reads the comments here and takes them all to heart - oh, bless, he's such a sensitive guy! This also explains who owns the accounts posting in his support!.

If he doesn't like criticism then he shouldn't keep contacting the Adver to court publicity.

I must state that I posted criticisms and yet I have a job - what job does Ranford have (which doesn't involve fraud)?
