Tipton’s Lee Glover will now take on Gloucester’s Andy Harris for the British Masters Super Featherweight Title at Walsall Town Hall next week.
The Tipton Slasher was due to take on Joe Beeden but Harris has stepped into replace the Swindon man in what promises to be an electrifying contest.
Glover goes into the fight on the back of a paper thin English Title defeat to Jon Kays whilst Harris is well known to the Walsall public following his brave showing against local hero, Luke Paddock, for a Masters strap earlier this year.
“I’m ready for this,” Glover told www.uko-boxing.com. “Everyone who was at the Kays fight said I won and I felt, in my heart of hearts, that I did too.
“That performance has given me the confidence to know I can mix with the best super featherweights in the country. I’ve had some great sparring in the build up to this. I’ve done a lot of work with Martin Gethin, who has really help bring me on.
“I’m in good shape and ready to bring my ‘A’ game.”
