MayDay! Taking Shape

Promotions’ ‘MayDay’ show at
Walsall Town Hall on Friday, 16th May is taking shape.

Bill-toppers Jason
Welborn and Luke Paddock both
face Bulgarian opposition in Stanislav
Nenkov and Kristian Dochev respectively.

19 year-old Nenkov has fought three times already
this year. Sandwiched in between two wins in his homeland, the Razgrad resident
lost an International Masters Light Middleweight contest against Brentwood’s
Kris Agyei-Dua.

Dochev has 25 professional fights to his name and goes
into his contest with Paddock on the back of a points victory over fellow
Bulgarian, Erhan Sali, in Sofia earlier this month.

Wolverhampton super featherweight, Des Bowater, will be looking to make it
5-0 as he faces the evergreen Kristian
Laight. Des’ brother, Sid, makes
his professional debut at welterweight against experienced Tamworth campaigner, Matt Seawright.

Stoke’s Rob
Hunt is back in action for the first time since his International Masters
Welterweight Title defeat at the fists of Stephen Pearce when he takes on veteran, Kevin McCauley, in a ding dong Stoke derby. McCauley is coming to win and Hunt, who lost to Pearce at the Town Hall back in November, will be eager to make
a return to winning ways too.

Fellow Stoke fighter, Josh McLaren, puts his undefeated 4-0 record to the test when he
steps in with Gloucester’s Louis Van Poetch. The Frank Warren-signed welterweight
defeated Matt Seawright at the Town Hall earlier this year and will be looking
for a similar result against serving soldier, Van Poetch. ‘Poochi’ has taken current British Champion, Curtis Wwodhouse, and highly rated prospect, Nathan Dale, the distance so it’s a step up in class for the talented McLaren.

Birmingham cruiserweight, Olly Lambert, faces an unnamed opponent and Ryan Nandha, the Leicester welterweight, will be looking to bounce back from a debut defeat when he returns to the a Town Hall.

Kyle Spencer, Chris Male, Lee Glover and Lennox Clarke
no longer feature.

priced at £30 and £60 Ringside, are available from Walsall
Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. The aftershow party takes place at the Pitch Sports Bar and Grill on Bridge
Street, Walsall.
