Midlands Area Middleweight Champion, Tyler Denny, and female prospect, Kirstie Bavington, have enjoyed a week-long Warm Weather Camp ahead of their ring return next month.
‘Ruthless’ flew out to Tenerife last weekend alongside a number of boxers, including fellow BCB Promotions fighter Bavington, for an intense training camp in the sun.
Both Denny and Bavington are due in the ring on Saturday, 9th March at Walsall Town Hall on BCB Promotions’ ‘Pride of the Midlands’ show. They trained at Boxeo Povedano with daily runs on Mount Teide, the Island’s iconic landmark.
“It’s been a great week,” Denny said. “We were based is Costa Adeje, which is about 10 minutes from the boxing gym.
“Manuel is a great coach out here and trains the Walsh brothers, Jamie Moore’s stable of boxers and many, many more. Adam Harper and Lennox Clarke have been out here before too, so it is a real home from home; just with better weather!
“We would drive to mount Teide most days and do altitude runs which we will hopefully see the benefit of come fight night. Some days we trained three times a day, sometimes twice; but we made sure we used the boxing gym every day, so it’s been an intense but enjoyable week.”
“It’s been really good,” added Bavington. “We’ve all pushed each other on and I’ve learnt about myself this week. We’ve been able to immerse ourselves in boxing and focus on nothing but the sport. It‘s been brilliant”
Tickets to see the pair are priced at £35 standard or £65 VIP ringside with a buffet and waitress service and are on sale now from the Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. It’s £40 for entry on the door.

The undercard sees former British middleweight champion Tommy Langford, talented welterweight Tommy Ghent, Conah Walker, a protege of the legendary Ricky Hatton,
Burntwood’s Troi Coleman and Brierley Hill lightweight prospect Connor Lee Jones, also in action.
Williams Travels For Lord Lonsdale Shot
Wolverhampton’s Kyle Williams will travel to Scotland in April in search of British Title honours.
The English Bantamweight Champion takes on Scotland’s Kash Farooq in the British Champions backyard of Glasgow on Thursday, 25th April 2019.
Williams, who last year was crowned Midlands Area Champion and then English Champion, will put his unbeaten record (10-0) on the line against his fellow unbeaten foe (11-0) in a fight that has all the ingredients to be a classic.
“Kash Farooq is a strong worthy champion,” admitted Williams. “I’ve seen his last four fights and he has improved in all of them. I know beating him will be the hardest test for me at this point of my career.
“I see a very fast, all action war. With it being England versus Scotland there will be that extra needle and I know I can’t afford to stand in front of him because his explosive and very busy.
“I haven’t had an away day yet in my boxing career but I can’t wait! Although we are away, I will be taking a large number up to Glasgow. I’m very lucky to have the support I do from BCB Promotions my loyal fans and of course all my sponsors.”
“I’m really excited to get back out there,” Farooq added. “This will be my second defence now so I’m looking forward to it. It’s an English fighter this time so there will be a wee bit of a extra needle to it.
“Kyle could be one of the toughest opponents so far. I always look at the next fight ahead of me as being my toughest. You’re not going to get easy fights at this level. I train for every fight like it’s going to be the hardest yet – I’ve found that’s a good way to do things. I’ve seen a wee bit of Kyle before. He’s a good fighter and I expect a tough night.”
The fight will take place at the Radisson Blu, Glasgow City Centre, on Thursday, 25th April.
The show will be a dinner show and tickets prices and details will be announced shortly.
