Tyler Denny will warm-up for his English Title tilts with six round bill topper at Walsall Town Hall next month.
Last week, the BCB signed boxer received news from the British Boxing Board of Control that he will compete for the English crown. The Midlands Area Middleweight Champion, Tyler Denny, has been mandated to face Leeds’ Reece Cartwright.
With the contest out at purse bids, BCB’s Head of Boxing, Errol Johnson, has moved quickly to get Denny out in readiness for his title tilt.
“It’s important to get Tyler out,” Johnson told bcb-promotions.com. “Tyler’s last fight was a six-rounder in May so he needs a few rounds in before starting camp for the Cartwright fight.”
Also on the bill, which will take place at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday, 21st July is BCB’s new signing, super bantamweight, James Beech Junior. The Bloxwich native, who made the switch from MTK Global last month, is joined by fellow Walsall boxers super lightweight, Shaun Cooper and Levi Ferguson who debuts at super welterweight.
Wolverhampton cruiserweight, Antony Woolery is also in action alongside Birmingham bantamweight, Ijaz Ahmed.
‘England Awaits’ is sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall.
Tickets, priced at £35 standard unreserved and £65 VIP Ringside, are on sale now from the Walsall Town Hall Box Office 0845 111 2900.
The weigh-in and aftershow party will take place at Grosvenor Casino Walsall, Bentley Mill Drive, Walsall (just off junction 10 of the M6).

But first he must defy the odds by defending his WBO NABO title and defeating a game world title challenger from Mexico City, Mexico, Julian “El Niño Artillero” Yedra (24-3-13 KO’s). Yedra, an experienced warrior has earned his bones fighting abroad, in 2015 he traveled to Japan to challenge then WBO Minimum weight World Champion Kosei Tanaka, unfortunately losing a close decision at the hands of the hometown favorite.
