Tipton’s Lee Glover ‘can’t wait’ for Friday’s showdown with Gloucester’s Andy Harris for the British Masters Super Featherweight Title at Walsall Town Hall.
The Tipton Slasher is ready to make up for lost time and avenge his Majority Decision loss to Jon Kays for the English Title when he appears he tops the bill of EJKO Promotions’ ‘The Heat Is On’.
Glover has revealed that he is using that paper thin English Title defeat as inspiration as he looks to push on and fulfil his potential.
“It still plays on my mind a bit but I’m using that as motivation to push on,” Glover told www.uko-boxing.com. “I took the English Champion all the way and only lost a majority decision away from home against the Champion. I’ve proved I can mix it at that level.”
“I only had a four-rounder before that fight so that gives me confidence too.
“Having a ten round fight on home soil is just what I’ve been waiting for. It’s been a long time since I fought in front of my home fans, so I want to put on a bit of a show. It’s a big deal for me.
“Andy Harris is a tough kid. He will be a test but I’m ready for it. I’m fully committed to boxing and ready to push on. I did slack off a bit when my daughter was born but now she’s a little older; I can give this sport my all and really kick on.
“Friday can’t come quick enough.”
A limited number of tickets, priced at £30 and £60 Ringside, are available from Walsall Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. The aftershow party and weigh-in both take place at the Pitch Sports Bar and Grill on Bridge Street, Walsall.
Glover versus Harris is supported by four intriguing fights.
Halesowen super middleweight Lennox Clarke will be looking to record a fourth straight win when he steps in with Croydon’s Joe Walsh.
Stafford’s Grant Cunningham makes a welcome return to ring action. The undefeated super middleweight prospect will be looking to make it 9-0 when he takes on the dangerous Welsh scrapper, Jamie Ambler.
Birmingham super featherweight prospect, Sean ‘Show Time’ Davis, takes on Bristol’s Harvey Hemsley.
Stafford’s Rob Hunt completes the card. A stomach bug has ruled out Luke Paddock.
The show will be aired live and exclusive on BBC WM’s DAB Digital Service and online at www.bbc.co.uk/wm.
