Darren Tetley out to make a big impact

Darren Tetley “can’t wait” for his third pro fight on the MaxiNutrition Knockout semi-finals undercard on May 17 at Leeds Town Hall, live on Channel 5.

The 20-year-old Bradford fighter is excited to be a part of the show and feels it is the “perfect opportunity” to make a big impact.

“I can’t wait, I’ve had two fights and both times I’ve had good support and a good atmosphere so I’m just counting down the days,” Tetley said.

“It means everything to be on a show like this as it gives me the perfect opportunity to get my name out there and try and get people talking about me.

“I know it’s very early in my career but I want people taking note.“

Tetley, who fights at welterweight, has two professional fights and two wins to his name and is seeking his first stoppage win.

“My first two fights have gone the distance, I’m not going to look for it but I’m hoping for a knockout performance,” Tetley said.

“If it could happen on this show it would be massive for me – what better show could you have to record your first pro stoppage.”

Tetley fights on the undercard to the MaxiNutrition Knockout semi finals where newly crowned British light heavyweight champion and Leeds fighter Bob Ajisafe takes on Southern Area champion Leon Senior and newly crowned English champion Travis Dickinson makes the first defence of his title against Central Area champion Matty Clarkson.

This fantastic night will also feature a whole host of exciting talent on the undercard including former world heavyweight title contender and Wladimir Klitschko opponent ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers, Leeds fighter Damon Jones, Bradford’s former WBC world light welterweight champion Junior Witter, Hull fighter Samir Mouneimne and Morecambe’s Isaac Lowe.
