Stourbridge’s former Midlands Area welterweight champion, Steven Pearce, has been added to EJKO Promotions’ Cannock boxing block buster – ‘The Chase’.
‘The Fierce’ is back in action for the first time since his defeat at the fists of undefeated English and WBA Intercontinental champion, Bradley Skeete.
“I’m buzzing to be back in action,” he told www.uko-boxing.com. “Boxing Bradley Skeete was a great experience. He’s one of the hottest prospects in the country right now and it was a privilege to share the ring with him. I thought I held my own until he caught with a great shot.
“Now I’m ready to get back out there and get myself back in the mix for a title. This is a perfect, local, tune-up fight for me.”
Pearce will compete in a four-round contest at the Chase Leisure Centre on Saturday, 4th October. Tickets, priced at £30 and £50 Ringside, are available by calling 07891 263 167.
