Dudley’s Spencer Looking To Build At Burton

By Daniel Mole: Dudley light middleweight, Kyle Spencer, is looking to build on his solid start to life as a professional boxer when he boxes at Burton Town Hall next Friday.

‘The Style’ appears on the undercard of Luke Gallear and Joel Ryan’s Midland Area Welterweight Title fight on Friday, 1st March looking to record a fifth straight victory.

The 23 year-old’s last outing was a convincing points win over William Warbuton back in November and he can’t wait to be back in the ring.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back in there,” he told “I haven’t been in the ring since I beat Warburton back in November but I’ve been sparring some decent lads and that’s kept me sharp.

“I’ve got rounds in against Andrew Robinson, Chris Male and Steve Pearce. They are all quality lads, so that’s helped.

“I want to be busy this year. I’ve only just turned 23. I’ve got plenty of time and I want to do things the right way. I want to build myself up and develop as a fighter. I’m on a winning streak, so long may that continue.”

Spencer faces Swadlincote rookie, Jimmy Price, on the Burton Bill. 19 year-old Price has only had one professional fight to date. That was back in September 2011 when he drew with fellow debutant, Chris Jenkinson.

After such inactivity, Price is something of an unknown but Spencer won’t be underestimating his opponent.

“I don’t know much about him,” he added. “He’s had one fight and drew that, so he’s a bit of an unknown. I won’t be going in there all guns blazing.

“I’ll suss him out first and then work on my game plan. I’m at that stage of my career when I just need ring experience and to build my record.

“I’ve never fought at Burton Town Hall but I’m told there’s a cracking atmosphere there. I’m looking forward to the experience.”

As well as Spencer versus Price and Gallear versus Ryan, Tamworth’s Matt Seawright (3-69-4) takes on Exeter’s Faheem Khan (4-0-1) and Burton’s Tom Shaw (8-1) will also be in action.
