The eight middleweights who will fight it out in search of glory in UB III are:
1. JOE HURN, Clacton, Essex, 10-0-1 (6)
Short Colour: Yellow
Built like a brick, the big puncher from Essex is aiming to blast his way through the fights. Has struggled for opportunities despite being highly rated. This is the type of fighter Ultimate Boxxer will help.
2. TEY-LYNN JONES, Southern Area Champion, Basildon, Essex, 11-1-0 (2)
Short Colour: Blue
Defended his Southern Area title in his last fight and has sparred successfully with likes of world champions Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale and George Groves. Extremely confident of success and a sworn vegan.
3. DERRICK ‘THE PUNCHING PREACHER’ OSAZE, Peckham, London, 6-0-0 (1)
Short Colour: Grey
Unbeaten in six fights, the Londoner has an unusual background. He as an ordained minister committed to a life of non-violence. He goes by the name of the “Punching Preacher”.
4. GRANT DENNIS, Former Southern Area Champion, Chatham, Kent, 12-1-0 (2)
Short colour: White
The ‘Go Getter’, a former Southern Area Middleweight Champion needed just 48 seconds to score a stunning KO victory in his last fight out. Has been unlucky not to go further with his only loss coming in a British title fight and will be looking at this event as his chance. Coming into the competition as the oldest competitor.
5. KEIRON CONWAY, Northampton, Northamptonshire, 10-0-0 (3)
Short colour: Pink
Tipped as the favourite. This undefeated hot-shot has tasted the high-life after featuring on the an Amir Khan undercard. He is now ready to make his move in the division.
6. JOSH GROOMBRIDGE, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, 7-1-0 (4)
Short Colour: Black
Big support and not to be underestimated. The dark horse who will be seeking a break through as a serious contender. He is a massive character with an enormous following and warns that he is not to be underestimated.
7. SEAN PHILLIPS, Surrey, 6-0
Short Colour: Red
Training out of the famous Peacock gym. The young, unbeaten, 22 year old has been tipped for a bright future under the watchful eye of top trainer Martin Bowers.
8. KAAN HAWES, Witham, Essex, 5-0-1
Short Colour: Green
No losses on his record and relatively unknown. Learnt his trade on the white collar scene after a previous career in professional football. He is an outsider with a big fanbase…Stranger things have happened…
An action packed undercard will see the return of the highly-rated and undefeated Light-Heavyweight talent and UB II winner Shakan Pitters and unbeaten super-middleweight prospect Idris Virgo who is out to prove to critics he is more than just a reality star.
