Saddlers supporter, Luke Paddock, headlines the latest professional boxing dinner show to take place here at the Banks’s Stadium.
‘Cool Hand’ tops BCB Promotions’ ‘Next Chapter’ show, which takes place in thee Stadium Suite on Friday, 5th May.
The Bloxwich super lightweight (16-2) put in one of his most accomplished and composed performances last time out as he defeated teak-tough Pole, Lukasz Janik, at Walsall Town Hall. Janik, who has shared a ring with the likes of Jack Catterall and Robbie Davis Jr, proved a tough nut to crack but ‘Cool Hand’ boxed beautifully to record a shut-out points win.
He will be looking for another impressive performance at the stadium of his beloved Saddlers.
Joining Paddock on the show, which is sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall, are bantamweight duo Kyle Williams (4-0) and Humza Ali (debut).
Wolverhampton’s Williams warms up for his Midlands Area Super Flyweight clash with Brett Fidoe later this year with a six-rounder at bantam whilst Brummie Ali makes his professional bow after a solid amateur career with Aston ABC.
West Bromwich welterweight, Tommy Loach (2-0), will be looking to make it a hat-trick of professional victories. The 24 year-old has defeated Ali Wyatt and Jerral Spencer to date and will be looking to make it three-in-a-row at the Banks’s Stadium.
Stoke cruiserweight, Luke Caci (1-0), and Swadlincote super lightweight, Connor Parker (2-0), complete the card. Caci impressed on his pro debut in Stoke last month as he featured on Hatton Promotions’ ‘Time To Shine’ show at Fenton Manor. The 27 year-old recorded a points win over Andy Neylon. Parker returns to the Banks‘s Stadium after defeating Liam Richards here just last month.
