The line-up for Black Country Boxing’s latest show – ‘Cool Hand & The Gang’- is almost complete.
The show, sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall, takes place at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday, 19th March 2016.
Walsall super lightweight, Luke Paddock, takes on Derbyshire’s Lee Connelly in a six round contest at the top of the bill. Paddock is hoping to reclaim his Midlands Area Title, and more, during 2016. This is the perfect tune-up fight for the Bloxwich boxer as he looks to build on his impressive victory over Plymouth’s Chris Adaway in December.
Fellow Walsall fighter, Martin Gethin, makes a welcome return to the Town Hall; the scene of his British Title victory over Ben Murphy three years ago. The Quiet Man takes on Newark’s Fonz Alexander also over six threes.
Midlands Area Super Welterweight Champion, Jason Welborn, is also in action as he looks to secure a third shot at a British Title.
The Bowater brothers – super featherweight Des and welterweight Sid – feature. Younger, but more experienced brother, Des, takes on Chris Adaway at super featherweight over six rounds whilst Sid steps in with Birmingham’s Dwayne Sheldon over four rounds.
West Bromwich middleweight, Tom Stokes, takes on Stoke’s Mark Till over four threes whilst Burton featherweight, Leon Gower, is also on the card.
Two debutants who have made the switch from kick boxing complete the bill. Wolverhampton’s former world featherweight champion, Kyle Williams, debuts at bantamweight whilst Newark’s International Sports Karate Association World and Intercontinental Champion, Chad Sugden, will be introduced to the pro ranks by Telford’s Kieron ‘Slammer’ Gray.
Tickets are priced at £30 (general admission) and £60 (VIP Ringside), and can be purchased by calling 0845 111 2900 or directly from any boxer on the bill.
The weigh-in and aftershow take place at Grosvenor Casino Walsall, Bentley Mill Way, Walsall WS2 0LE (just off junction 10 of the M6). GC Walsall will have a presence at the Town Hall on the evening and have linked up with local taxi firm, Yellow Taxi’s, to supply a number of free taxi’s to take guests from the Town Hall to the casino post-fight.
