Although I haven’t fought yet this month, I’m thrilled that a bigger opportunity has presented itself that could potentially elevate my career to the next level.
I’m waiting for the contract and tickets for the show to arrive, so it’s pretty much confirmed but I just can’t announce it just yet, frustratingly.
It will mark the five-year anniversary of my debut and I plan to grab this chance with both hands.
All I can say is that it will be for a bigger title than the WBC International Silver title, which I was due to fight for on Saturday 12 at the Brighton Metropole Hotel, and that it will be televised live on TV.
Regardless of the result, it could be the defining moment that elevates my career after five hard years of work as a professional boxer.
I’m still training with former British, Commonwealth, European and undisputed World champion Lloyd Honeyghan.
The training is always intense but has been particularly hard the past few weeks with the original intention of fighting on the 12. It was a bit of an easier week last week, being close to fight week, so it eased off a bit, but now I’ve got a new date to work towards at the end of the month, I’m going to have another two hard weeks of training and sparring to come.
It’s been going really well and I’m fitter than ever. I’ve been doing lots of sparring with Nick Jenman, who defends his Southern Area middleweight title this weekend against Kent’s Grant Dennis.
Today, I’m sparring with my manager Scott Welch’s son Tom. He won the Southern Counties tournament recently and he’s a 21-year-old heavyweight.
There’s not many people around for me to spar with this week as a few of the lads are fighting this weekend but hopefully I won’t need it anyway.
I’ll still be going to the show to support the lads so I hope to see a big crowd in attendance from the local area.
It will be a great night of boxing and the main event will be a cracker! I might be able to talk about my big news by then, so feel free to come and say hello if you are there!
