Curtis Woodhouse: I'll teach Dave Ryan a lesson in respect
CURTIS Woodhouse has vowed to teach Dave Ryan a lesson, saying he showed a lack of respect at yesterday's weigh-in.
Both boxers had to be separated as tensions boiled over ahead of tonight's English light-welterweight title fight at the Magna Centre, Rotherham.
Woodhouse claims Ryan started a scuffle after his opponent struggled to make the weight.
And he has promised to make Ryan regret the incident when they step in the ring.

"I'm going to teach Dave Ryan a lesson. He showed me no respect at the weigh-in and I'll sort that out in the ring,"Woodhouse told the Mail.
"He didn't make the weight at the first time of asking, then came back and just about made the weight.
"Then he tried to butt me and after a few butts to and fro we were pulled apart.
"That can happen when two boxers are fired up as a result of being tired and hungry.
"There wasn't any bad blood between the pair of us before, but there is now.
"If the fight is anywhere near as good as the weigh-in, the fans turning up to watch will be in for a treat."
Both fighters lost their last fights, and Woodhouse has lost two of his last three.
His last bout, also at the Magna Centre, saw him suffer a fractured cheekbone in defeat to Dale Miles.
Ryan lost a British title eliminator to Adil Anwar and will want to get his career back on track.
Unlike his opponent, Woodhouse had no problem making the weight and was six ounces under the 63.5 kilos limit.
Immediately after the weigh-in, he wasted little time trying to bulk up by eating as much carbohydrate as possible.
"I'm ready to go and I will be bringing home the English title," he said.
