As with Hayemaker Boxing’s successful forum in Rotherham, the O2 Arena floor will be open to both press and public. Naturally, this is a fantastic opportunity to quiz Haye on his impending heavyweight voyage as well as watch the man in action as he gears up to his heavyweight curtain raiser on November 15 at the O2 Arena – in a bout screened live and exclusively by Setanta Sports.
Also present on the day will be Hayemaker’s Head of Boxing Dave Coldwell and hot prospect George Groves.
Tait, Barrett Added To "Stars Of The Future" In London
Gavin Tait and Ryan Barrett join big punching heavyweight Scott Belshaw as veterans anchoring a show designed to help bring four promising professional debutantes to the public eye on Frank Maloney's "Stars of the Future" bill this Saturday night at London's historic York Hall.
Light welterweight Tait can always be counted on to deliver gutsy, hard-nosed performances and the Kent battler's contest on Saturday against rock-solid Coventry journeyman Baz Carey is sure to produce a thrilling test of wills.
Barrett will be looking to get back on the winning track following a failed British title bid at featherweight against John Simpson but the local southpaw must overcome the challenge posed by iron-chinned light welter Michael Frontin, who has lost his last two contests by a grand total of three points to ex-English lightweight champ Scott Lawton and undefeated hot prospect Nicki Smedley.
In the headlining bout, Belshaw meets seasoned Czech opponent Pavol Polakovic while heavyweight Tom Dallas, lightweight Liam Shinkwin, welterweight Vinnie Woolford and light middle Tomasz Grublys all make their pro debuts.
Frank Maloney Promotions presents "Stars of the Future" on Saturday, September 13, 2008 at York Hall in London, England. Tickets are priced at £50 and £30 and are available by logging onto www.frankmaloney.com or by calling the Box Office at 0871 226 1508.
