Matching and promoting a card of 9 fights, is not everyone’s idea of fun, but to Bellshill based Paul Graham it is all in a days work “Well we have run a few shows in this format of having Eight plus fights, so I am used to frantic last few weeks as the show comes closer. I am convinced that with each show we do, Prospect Boxing is getting a becoming well know in the local circles and this is evident in our attendances .
With a nine fight card planned for November 15th at the Ravenscraig Sports Facility, once again Prospect Boxing are offering boxing fans a mix of established fighters, and new fighters in what promises to be an explosive evening.
Making his debut, Glasgow based Mohammed Babazudah makes pro debut at Super Middleweight against west Midlands Jamie Gelder, while Kelty based Connor Law, the former Scottish Elite Boxing Champion 2013, also makes his debut at the Welterweight division. Completing the line up of debutants is Keith Dunbar, who competes in the Featherweight. All three fights are scheduled for 4 rounds.
Looking forward to his third fight this year, Glasgow based Shaun McShane (1-1-1) returns after a brief spell out with an injury, but promoter Paul Graham thinks it will have made him more determined “Shaun is a fit guy, he’s ran marathons in the past and doesn’t skip the roadwork. We have him pencilled in to fight Radoslav Mitev, who we had at our show earlier in the year were he picked up a big win over Eddie Doyle, so he will be fancying to upset the odds again, but im sure Shaun will feel differently about that.
Continuing his education in the professional ranks, Wishaw based Lee Gallacher (3-0) is looking for his fourth straight win, and his form has impressed “Lee has been flawless in first couple of fights. He has been in with experienced fighters who have different styles, and I thought he done well against Max Maxwell, who is a tough come forward fighter. In this fight we have in against Alistair Warren who is again another experienced operator and has draws with both Craig McEwan and Luke Blackledge. So this fight will give him a good push, and keep him on his tows.
After making the headlines early this year with a knockout of Matt Seawright at the St Andrews Sporting club’s Annual Burns night show, Uddingston’s Michael McGurk (2-0) looks to make it a third straight win of the year as he returns on November 15th. Without a fight since February, the time out will see the 20 year old hungry to return and make up for lost time.
With a win over Kristain Laight at the Cleland Miners Club, Edinburgh based Lee Redpath (1-0) returns against Sid Razack. An Experienced amateur, the Welterweight showed his promoter a lot of promise “Lee was a bit nervous coming into his fight, but he took the fight to Laight, and really stepped it up towards the end of the fight. He kept the pressure up, and was entertaining to watch. I know he has been training hard for November 15th, so it will be good to keep him busy and learning.
With a loss to Shaun McShane on his debut earlier this year, Coatbridge based Ryan Love (1-1)swiftly picked up his first win with a win over Ryan McNicol in June this year. Returning to the venue where he made his debut, Love returns in a six round attraction
With two wins in his first two fight, Coatbridge Welterweight Gary Murray (2-0) returns in a six rounder against Luke Keleher as he looks to pick up his first win by KO
