On The Edge
BCB Promotions’ first show of the new boxing season takes place at the Banks’s Stadium, Walsall FC, on Friday, 1st September.
On The Edge is a seven-fight card featuring plethora of upcoming pugilists.
Ricky Hatton trained duo – Sam Evans (9-0) and Chris Blaney(7-0) – are in action. Wednesbury welterweight Evans has recorded nine straight victories since turning professional less than two years ago and has his sights set on major honours during the new campaign.
Irishman Blaney, 7-0, will also be looking to get himself in the mix at super middleweight in what will be his second full season as professional.
Newark super middleweight Chad Sugden (5-1) bounced back from his shock defeat to Alistair Warren last year to defeat Raimonds Sneidze in May. Sugden, a former world champion kick-boxer, is also back in action.
Old Hill super featherweight, Manny Zaber (10-1) features as he looks to stay in shape ahead of a mooted Midlands Area showdown with Black Country rival Les Byfield in the new season.
West Bromwich light heavyweight, Josh Stokes (3-0), will be looking to build on a solid debut boxing season this time around. Stokes has fought three times already this year.
Chasetown lightweight, Luke Jones (3-1-1), and Derby lightweight, Sahib Singh Mann (3-0), complete the card.
