Following a successful promotion by Prospect Boxing Promotions at the Fauldhouse Miners Welfare on Friday 27th Feb, Promoter Paul Graham wasted no time in arranging his next show exactly one month later at the Alona Hotel, Strathclyde Park in Motherwell.
The four fight card is headlined by local favourite Kenny Davidson and Alloa’s Scott Edgar for the British Masters Bronze Title at Super Middleweight.
Whilst both combatants may agree that they might not climb the rankings far enough to attain a shot at the Lonsdale belt any time soon, this contest can propel the winner to a Scottish area title later on in the year.
Promoter Paul Graham explains, “Both fighters train extremely hard and are dedicated to their sport however domestically the super middleweight division is stacked with talent and this title gives the guys fighting for it a chance to bag one of the minor belts that they can show their grandchildren in years to come, but lets not forget it can also start them on the journey to Area titles as we have seen woth so many other domestic fighters.
He adds “Win lose or draw, the Scottish boxing pundits in the know are excited about this title fight and many are struggling to pick a winner. A few fans have also told me they expect a good old fashioned tear up, and cant see it going the full distance.
“If it is a close fight and both men push themselves, I will petition the Scottish area council to put it back on for a rematch for the Scottish title proper.
Also featuring on the bill will be Viewparks Michael McGuire, who is looking to extend his unbeaten run to 4-0. “We’re finding it hard to match Michael as most prospects are staying clear of him but hope to have an opponent named soon” acknowledges the Promotor.
