Professional boxing returns to Walsall in the New Year as Black Country Boxing, in association with Walsall FC, host a three-fight card at the Banks’s Stadium.
‘Triple Threat’ includes a pair of undefeated prospects go in search over their first professional silverware.
The show takes place in the Stadium Suite, Banks’s Stadium, home of Walsall FC, on Saturday, 21st February.
Halesowen Super Middleweight, Lennox Clarke, will be hoping to be in seventh heaven and secure a British Bronze Masters Title.
The 23 year-old has blazed a trail of destruction through the super middleweight scene, recording six consecutive victories since turning professional in 2013, including three knock outs.
Stablemate Des Bowater is also undefeated in his opening six contests and will be looking to secure a British Bronze Masters Super Featherweight Title when he takes on Lewis ‘2 Slick’ Jones.
It promises to be an intriguing contest as the Wolverhampton pugilist, like Clarke, goes in search of a first title against his Leicester opponent.
Completing the ‘Triple Threat’ show is Stoke lightweight, Andy Keates. The 23 year-old warms up for his vacant Midlands Area Lightweight Title showdown with Michael ‘Mad Man’ Mooney, scheduled for April, with a four round contest.
“It promises to be a great show,” Manager Errol Johnson told www.uko-boxing.com. “Lennox and Des are both highly rated prospects who have won their opening six fights. They both need a step up to eight round contests and Bronze Masters Titles are the perfect stepping stone for them.
“It’s a big year for them both. Andy needs a ‘keep busy’ fight ahead of his big showdown with Michael Mooney, so this is perfect The Stadium Suite at Walsall FC is a great venue and it’s nice to be able to announce this before Christmas.”
