27.09.06 - By Mark Pickering: After a comfortable pro debut win, footballer-turned-boxer Curtis Woodhouse is set make his second appearance in the squared circle. The former England U21 midfielder floored Londoner Dean Marcoantonio twice on his way to a four round points win. Woodhouse, who joined Birmingham City for £1m in 2001, earned impressive reviews for his willingness to trade and confident all-action style. The 26-year-old will fight in another four-rounder in Manchester on Sports Network’s already action-packed bill on October 14 at the MEN Arena.
