Plymouth lightweight, Des Newton, again tops BCB Promotions’ latest Plymouth show as he defends his newly acquired British Challenge Title.
‘The Destroyer’ defeated Jamie Quinn over eight grueling rounds last month to claim his first professional belt and defends it against Gloucester’s Andy ‘Hurricane’ Harris at Plymouth Guildhall on Saturday, 6th May.
Mayhem is sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Plymouth, who will again host the weigh-in and Aftershow Party and features a host of Devon-based boxers on the undercard.
Fellow Plymouth lightweight, Darren Townley, is once again in action as he looks to challenge for area honours in 2017. ‘The Terminator’ returned to winning ways with a convincing victory over Matt Seawright last time out.
Plymouth super middleweight Cristian Hoskin-Gomez will challenge for an International title whilst Launceston duo – welterweight, Wes Smith , and bantamweight, Marcus Hodgson make a welcome Guildhall return alongside Cornwall cruiserweight, Marcus Kelly, who recorded a debut victory at the venue in July 2016.
Debutants Louis Aitken and Jordan Platt complete the card. Former Great Britian kick-boxer Aitken will campaign at lightweight whilst former Launceston ABC star Platt turns over at welterweight.
Plymouth welterweight, Jack ‘The Ripper’ Bellingham, misses out this time due to injury but will be fully recovered for BCB’s July show at the Guildhall.
Tickets for Mayhem are £30 or £50 Ringside and are available by calling: 07958 398 355. Doors open at 6:30pm with boxing commencing at 7:30pm at Plymouth Guildhall, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 2AA.
